Cheap? Yes.

Good quality? Sure, if your idea of "quality seafood" is Red Lobster.

H&M = "disposable club clothes"

It's cool, I shop there too. And Forever 21 on occasion.

Peace,
Dezign

no such thing as quality clothes anymore. haven't been as long as mechanical looms have been making cloth. its just not as good as the homespun stuff, for some reason.

As Dezign mentioned, H&M is anything BUT good quality. The reason why it's so cheap is because it's supposed to be disposable clothing. I've heard that they actually have 7 clothes seasons (as opposed to the normal winter, spring, fall, summer seasons).

H&M does have a commercial. When it had ( still has) a collaboration with David Beckham. They have more commercials with BIG celebrities.

Say what your observation is or move on... I keep saying it and I'll say it again. These posts add absolutely no value besides a +1 to your post count.
