A whole new meaning of POW... :oops:
…. and when they reach the poor countries …. what happens?
Given away to needy people?
I’ve watched it happen, and was surprised to see the whole lot sold to a businessman who paid $600.
$4 from my own pocket purchased 2 pairs of expensive designer jeans … donated by a good hearted person.

fast fashion - buy it - wear it - dump it - don't even wash it - most of it is not even of such a quality that second use is possible

Designer jeans, non Africa price: Versace

BESTICKTE MEDUSA JEANS 695 €​

Bought one pair of expensive trousers once, from Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills (for $250 in 1984).
Fell apart after two weeks, no customer service, no refund.
Had a Hong Kong tailor copy those using thick silk plus 30 copies of a nice shirt. … in those days about $3 or maybe $10 each.
Everything turned out fine.

(The price increased rapidly to a few hundred $ per item a few years later).
