CITY VIEWS: HAVE YOU NOTICED THE RISE IN THE COST OF CLOTHES?

“I don’t think prices have gone up, or at least I haven’t noticed any massive change. There’s a lot of competition between clothes shops in the City, so there tends to be lots of special deals. But I have seen the price of food rising.”

PHIL SPRATT | ACCENTURE
“Not that I have noticed. I don’t tend to shop that much for clothes, though. I hadn’t heard anything about the price of cotton rising, but I would have thought it would only affect the price of a piece of clothing in a small way.”

DEAN O’CONNOR | AVIVA
“I would say prices have gone up in the last couple of months. It feels like there are fewer special offers around. I tend to buy clothes in batches, and when I bought some work clothes recently I felt some difference. I had heard the price of cotton had risen quite a lot.”
