Clothing manufacturing has gone downhill big time. When I moved to Florida I gave up some absolutely rugged wool sweaters from J. Crew that had lasted literally 30+ years. I bought them in high school or early college. I moved when I was 50. Put a collared shirt underneath and a pair of slacks (50 remember) and they looked like you were going to your kid’s soccer game at the local high school.

Today, a sweater from J. Crew is not meant to last. Few companies make clothing that lasts because if they wear out you’re just going to buy new. When I’ve made an impulse buy at H&M I’m surprised if the shirt lasts more than 3 wears.

Sigh. Grumble grumble. I’m going to go yell at the clouds.
