Three cheers for Prince Charles for making do and mending

The ethical cost of cheap clothing is undeniably large. But when high-street fashion is so cheap to buy, few bother with
repairsIt turns out that Prince Charles is, in fact, just like the rest of us. Well, in the sense that he is somewhat more thrifty than we might imagine for a monarch-in-waiting.


The heir to the throne was spotted by the Telegraph this week wearing a suit jacket with a neat but conspicuous repair. The royals are possibly not the best figureheads of frugality but three cheers for Charles for making do and mending. Bespoke suits of this kind cost on the order of £3,000-4,000 so it's heartening that when he – or perhaps his footman – discovered a tear in the fabric, rather than popping out to the shops for a new suit, a repair was in order.


A Clarence House spokesperson told the Guardian that although they were unsure how the tear had occurred, it was most likely through "wear and tear" due to the age of the suit. They said that the temporary patch will be fully repaired with an invisible patch shortly.http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/blog/2013/jul/04/prince-charles-make-do-and-mend#_
