I do believe that there are very few sunglasses manufacturers in the world but there is a difference in heft with cheaper and more expensive frames.  I buy both kind and I can feel the difference.  Now is the difference worth $10 vs. $400? Not really.

I can also tell the difference with regular glasses. If you buy smaller more niche brands your frames are often a better quality.

yep. When i see marked down dress at Ross i wonder how this cheap dress thats falling apart and seams with a bunch of thread popping out could have possibly sold for $140. I dont pay attention to trends. I just buy what i need when i need it.

You can tell which items at TJMAXX are made for the store.  If you want to get an actual saving you need to look for name brand items only.  And I often google the products I am buying while in store so I can see where else it was sold.

But quality is why I do not buy a lot of things full price.  I just got jackets from zara that retailed for $160 for $18 and $40.  Bc their quality control is often terrible there are very few things there that I think deserve full retail pricing.  I shop there during sales and like final clearance, like now.

I rarely buy embroidered or sequinned clothes anyway but number 5 will now make me a lot more wary.

There's an eye-opening book, written by a top fashion editor, that discusses the luxury industry and how many luxury brands are cutting corners to diminish their quality and service and shares a lot of "behind the scene secrets" about a lot of brands. Gucci, Prada.

She mentioned some high-end handbags are being produced in China, sent to Italy for adding a handle, then a "Made in Italy" tag would be placed on the bag.

Yup to especially 1 & 5

The fashion industry is focused on encouraging needless consumption.

The constant shifts in trends and glamourizing poorly made clothes that soon fall apart, all is constructed to keep us constantly buying things. The more we spend the bigger their profit.

#6. The textile industry does not like to waste ANYTHING! Many garments are made from dust bunnies, dirt, debris, hair with pieces of leftover fabric (natural and unnatural) that comes from the floors of factories. 

#7. Many retailers would "damaged out" garments that may not be sell-able, but still wearable. Instead of donating the clothes, they would get rid of them. In some cases they would take a dress with a broken zipper or missing button, for example, and take a pair of scissors to completely destroy the garment.
