Stovel & Mason Shirt

Stovel & Mason Shirt

OK so maybe I’m picking out Stovel & Mason here amongst a thousand other makes of fashion brands who do the same with shirts but I suppose it doens’t make it OK just because everyone else is bad.

Stovel & Mason ShirtI’ve got no idea why shirts can’t just be on a hanger (preferably made of wood instead of plastic but I think I may be asking too much there!), that way you can actually see the shirt hanging, you can feel the material and get a much better sense of what it’s like, but oh no, for some reason only known to the gods of retail shirts must always be in a little plastic pouch thing, one hundred and two little random bits of plastic card and even metal. I counted 16 different bits of packaging on this shirt, admittedly it’s not the worst I’ve ever seen but still that’s 15 more than needed.

Count’em and weep

Shops accept returns if clothes don’t fit, so isn’t this just a hassle for the retailer and then the manufacturer if a shirt gets returned with all those random bits of plastic? And who is the poor bugger who has to package this shirt up? Probably some kid in a developing country getting paid sod all to clip silly little bits of plastic to the cuffs and collar (OK so I don’t know this but if Stovel & Mason have full details of their supply chain I’d be happy to share them)
