Sorry to be crude but Today Tonight once again spoke from their arses when they aired a story today on how it is better to buy cheap clothing from Kmart or Big W than to buy expensive brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren. As someone who has worn both Ralph Lauren and Big W products I can attest that this is pure bullshit.
In the story Today Tonight compared a polo St Mark’s shirt from Big W with a Polo Ralph Lauren polo shirt. According to the reporter the Ralph Lauren shirt faded after a few washes while the $6 el cheapo from Big W did not. In reality I have several quality products from Polo that I bought a few years ago (when I could afford them) that still look great today. In comparison I have a recently bought Big W shirt where the stitching has started to come apart and which just does not look as good.
