THE RESULTS ARE IN!!!...

buy whatever you want to buy.  it's your choice.  but if you've made it to this age and you don't know that polyester is a garbage fiber and used to make primarily cheap clothing... then i've got a truckload of unflattering DENIM & CO cardigans and SKORTS i'd love to sell you!  theyd go nicely with a DUSTER (bea arthur wore them on the 70's sitcom MAUDE) and a bedazzled QUAKER FACTORY TEE!   

i cant argue with you about your taste (or lack of) but do yourself and the world a favor.  buy less!  buy quality.  stop falling for LIES AND HYPERBOLE (thank you smart lady in the comments)

 

all that stuff you donate to GOODWILL....

over half of it winds up being thrown away.  because it was poor quality when you bought it!

a small SMALL percentage winds up for sale and the rest gets shipped to a foreign country to wind up in their landfills!!

contrary to what ISAAC MIZRAHI says,  a girl does NOT need a lot of clothes!

an educated shopper needs a very smart and flattering wardrobe to suit her/his needs.

I won't wear polyester. It's like wearing a plastic bag. 

 

Premium fabric? No way in H.

@ltko51   Do you have credentials that certify you as a textile expert?  Do you have information on the wholesale prices of all the different qualities poly and rayon fabrics?

 

I daresay there's not a person on this board who can say definitively whether what they say is true or not.


 

One doesn't need training to know whether or not polyester is quality or premium fabric. 

 

If you like it, great, more power to you.

 

Others don't like it and that's ok. I won't wear it because, to me, it's like wearing a plastic bag.

Several years ago an expert air travel employee advised NEVER wear polyester or synthetics on a plane just in case of fire.  It goes up in flames so quickly, so you know the rest....just saying.

 

Thought I'd throw in that little tidbit. Cat Surprised
