Just can't get cheap labour like they used to!
M&S clothing, Karrimor...too many brands to list have compromised on quality just to compete on price. You can tell you are amongst good company when nobody jumps on you for using the phrase "outdoor footwear" - as opposed to slippers? I meant that they used to make some decent hiking footwear (embarrassed)
Indeed. What is particularly galling is the fact they move production to somewhere like China and use sub standard materials to lower costs but continue to charge premium prices. Hunter spring to mind...
Made me chuckle anyway
Much appreciated, thank you!
