You get a good bargain but how about good quality?

We would always want to get good bargains like in clothes, shoes and the like. But what about the quality? Does it mean that if it has a lower price then it has bad quality? How can we make sure that we are really getting GOOD bargains?

Herro redphile That is a tough question. When you buy seconds, you know there is a flaw in the clothing. Whenever I buy new clothing, I look it over carefully for seams, stains, etc. I also buy clothing at yard sales. Shoes I buy new. I have odd feet. Lo prices do not necessarily mean poor quality. I find t-shirts at Walgreens at 4 for $14 (?). There are good quality and I like them. I wear a lot of t-shirts. I have found bargains at "to good to be thru" types stores, sometimes with tags still on them. You just have to be cautious. Prosperous mylotting

yeah there are bargain shops with tags still attached to the clothes though im also not 100% certain if those are genuine or branded shirts. Sometimes, I go for brand new if Im in a hurry but tendency I get a high price.

My girlfriend and I always look for bargains in clothes, shoes, and stuff. More often than not, those things which come in low prices have poor quality. But, contrary to that belief that low price also means low quality, that's not always the case. In order to find a good bargain, you have to be meticulous and scrutinize every detail of what you're going to buy to make sure its quality is at par with that of its expensive counterpart in the market. =)

sometimes im not very keen and i dont have the patience to go through a whole bunch of clothes so if I see something i like and its cheap, i grab it. Well, i get some good ones but some are worn out after 1 time use. But yeah, i think so too that its not always the case.

Well nothing is a bargain if you have no actual use for it. One has their own opinions on what items they want quality in. Like I am looking for a quality dress shoe for work. I have not found anything yet that suits my needs, I'm not going to go w/ the cheapest thing I see because I have to stand on my feet in dress shoes and I would prefer something with some substance to it.

In my view, if you are quite familiar with something, it's possible that you could buy something which has high quality in a low price through bargaining, or you may be cheated by the sellers. Personally speaking, I don't like bargaining with others. I prefer to buy goods in hypermarket, where I could buy guaranteed goods in a reasonable price.

usually we make bargains considering the quality also. if its clothes, then surely we can know its quality by touching or streching it. so bargaining it lively is not a problem. but if we are shoppin through online then it will be tough to know the quality.

Low price does not always mean less quality. Did you know that the store brands are often exactly the same as the "real" thing. I mean, EXACTLY the same, but the store pays to have its name put on a product so they can sell it cheaper. In some cases low price DOES equal bad quality, but its usually easy to tell something bad just by looking at it.
