    Empire Jeans also manufacture in the U.K. and don’t cost the earth.

      Agreed Peter, I’m wearing a new pair of Empire heritage denim now, quality and good price.

    Would love ladies denims without stretch waist. It’s helpful to have leg length or at least standard sizes.

    The point is though that why do these UK made jeans have to cost £150-200?

    The materials can’t be 5 times the cost so accounting for UK wages we’re taking about a potential profit margin of around £50 per pair of jeans?

    The real bottom line though is that UK workers are lazy and greedy for the most part, they also want jobs that pays top cabbage with the least amount of effort but cry rivers when robots take their job or it’s shipped out to someone who will do it better for much less.

    I bought a pair of bottoms that were made in Thailand, I wanted them altered so dropped at the local alterations shop who ruined them with wonky stitching and uneven seems, the person who probably got paid 2 quid did a better job putting them together than the person paid £15 just to alter one little part.

    If big business was forced to make any product sold here made here (or at least assembled here) then things would change but profiting from misery is what sells.
