No matter where you are, no matter who you are. We all have to agree that Primark has taken over the fashion world by storm. I rarely go into the this shop because fashion to me has always been about the experience, the feel good factor, the hunt for something different and walking out with a stylish bag. The reason I’ve chosen to talk about it is. Older men and even guys on a tight budget still maintain that you need a lot of cash to look good. Well thanks to Primark there is no more excuse. You don’t have to spend huge amounts of cash to look good.
Primark – Shopping Psychology
So it’s been a long time since my last visit to Primark. If you choose to go to one, you might as well choose the one in Oxford street. It’s huge, mad and nothing short of stressing. A shopping hell to me. Your Primark shopping experience turns into try and spot the cheapest item. Me included! We all get caught up in the price opposed to the value or need of the product. I have not even been in the store for 5 minutes and my huge bag given to me is now loaded. Yeah that’s the power of cheap shopping. People getting caught up in buying clothes that frankly they just don’t need. Are you really saving money? Nope, but I’ve got the latest trends at a bargain.
SOCKS – PRI SMITH
Oh my gosh, socks for £1. So before you know it, I have ten in my huge bag. So gentlemen if you have holes in your socks or need an update look. Go for the Paul Smith look a like. Stripes, colours and bang on trend.
Underwear – PRI KLEIN
The lingerie section I have to say Is fabulous for cheap everyday underwear. Trust me I have measured it against other high street labels. OUCH. There is no difference in the quality or design of the product. This is where I find it very scary indeed. So your next set of Calvin Klein undies are just there for the taking. White underwear with a think strap saying Primark. Who cares. If you’re on a budget and value your bedroom attire then look no further. If you want to be more adventurous then just go for Bjorn Borg look a likes.
It would only take the Italians to give it a potential new high end name. But again terrifying as it may seem there are weeks when you just can’t believe the level of imitation that Primark has succeeded in. Luring you to buy the imitation Armani jacket. The key in finding the gems is simple look at Armani catalog or what the top labels are boasting about as the next big hit. Get your trainers on and run into Primark. Because they will have it in stock in know time at all. Don’t worry they’ve been in court many of times for this. But the money and free publicity they make on it, covers the cost.
PRI STAR RAW
So you’ve spotted your next G-STAR Raw latest collection. But just minimal cash to spare. Don’t worry, Primark will have you sorted in no time. Go for a bigger size as I find they shrink.
PRI – LEATHER
Perfect for those that love animals and don’t support leather. The style of jackets are bang on trend and those lovers of Prada are in heaven. Just look at GQ and spot the trends. No doubt Primark have it sorted.
PRI – SHARK
Crickey it’s just a matter of time. Shall we see you down under?
PRI – FRANCE
It was announced this week that Primark are opening stores in France.
PRI – ASOS
Asos has begun selling Primark clothing online as part of a trial with the discount fashion retailer. So if you want to buy Primark products online you can do so here.
Tri – Everything
What the hell just go for it. Go nuts! Yes this shop has a underlying purchase power we all get caught up in. Even when your about to pay. What shop in the world has over 20 checkouts? And you are literally locked in like a heard of cattle waiting for food. Tip from me. I walk out with a top label bag throw my purchases in it and no one will ever no. Well up until now.
So the great thing about Primark Oxford street is when you are finished there is a great seating place for you outside, to get over your stressed shopping experience. CAUTION mentally prepare yourself for PRIMARK.
