Most of these fabric yardages do not endure beyond one summer – they wear out too quickly – they might not even last ten washes. This is why a ready to wear trouser or top or woven button down shirt from an international brand feels like a bargain now. The other day, a senior colleague purchased a very nice embellished woven top from Mango for about PKR 3000 at full price while we were browsing the malls - I told her to go for it as the price seemed reasonable to me. Mango is a high street brand in UK – know what I mean?
