Cheap shopping for the masses

Disadvantages: Not as cheap as it seems, quality can be lacking
Primark is a store which sells items of clothing relatively cheaply compared with competitors (although i must say that they do not sell them as cheaply as they once did, the other day i saw a jacket in their for around 40 pounds!) To be totally honest with you, some of the items they sell are lacking in quality, and some of the items they sell i have no idea who wears them (for example, they have these weird shoes that are filled with what looked like left over bits from a tree or something).
Anyway, i tend to grab things from primark like the t shirts, and the mens ceaderwood state shirts when they are on special offer. The t shirts are normally between 2.50 and 3, and i got a short sleave ceaderwood shirt for 3 quid when it was on special offer, not bad really.
I have never personally got the shoes from their, but my brother has, and he quite liked them... until he walked through a muddy field wearing them and after that they were completely ruined (they were felt-like ones, and they took up all the mud and couldn't be washed).
As for the trousers and jeans, i find the quality of them a bit lacking, but the cargo trousers are ok. I also don't mind the ties they sell there either, but at 1 or 2 pounds for 1 or 2 ties, they aren't exactly cheap.
In summary then, i like primark for simple things, and for cheap things. I dont like the expensive stuff there which lately they seem to be increasing, i find it strange that people buy this stuff when they could have just gone to another store and got a better quality coat etc for the same price, or just a little more.
Summary: I quite like it to be fair
