If you shop at Urban Outfitters you're probably used to being ripped off, but this once really takes the cake. An Urban Outfitters shopper in Glasgow spotted a shirt in-store made by Cedar Wood State - Primark's in-house design label - but with a hefty Outfitters's price tag.
And people were pretty surprised:
The comparison photo has since been liked by over 800 people. The Sun reached out to Urban Outfitters for a statement on how the shirt ended up in their store in the first place.
"While we cannot authenticate the photo in question, we take all customer feedback very seriously," a spokesperson told the publication. "We are determining whether the shirt was possibly obtained through a bulk purchase for our Urban Renewal Vintage and Remade program, through which our designers tailor vintage clothing and make each piece one-of-a-kind.
"We are reviewing our limited UK Urban Renewal Vintage and Remade inventory, and any non-vintage pieces will immediately be pulled."
Essentially, the spokesperson is saying that they buy vintage clothes in, Blue Peter them up a bit with diamantes and a glue gun (probably), and then sell them on for a much, much higher price. Right.We have our doubts about how "vintage" this top actually is, though, so I think we'll just steer clear of Urban Outfitters and stick to Primark for now, thanks.
