Woman says PLT sold her Fruit of the Loom joggers with label cut out



(Picture: Twitter/katiewaddilove)A woman has taken to Twitter to accuse Pretty Little Thing of selling a pair of joggers which she claims were originally made by Fruit of the Loom, but have had the label removed.
She tweeted a picture of the seam of the trousers, which showed the Pretty Little Thing label on one side and what looks like the remnants of a Fruit of the Loom label on the other.
The woman, @katiewaddielove, says that the Fruit of the Loom joggers retail from between £6 – £12, but says PLT are selling the same pair for £20.
She included a screenshot of what looks like the joggers she bought being sold on Amazon by Fruit of the Loom.

So @OfficialPLT are selling £6-£12 fruit of the loom joggers, cutting the labels out and charging £20 for products they haven’t even manufactured themselves???🤔 pic.twitter.com/x48FPtBli3

Lots of people have jumped on to Katie’s comments, some saying they were disappointed with the brand, others testing out their own products by taking a closer look at their labels.
But some sprang to PLT’s defense and told Katie that is just how the fashion industry works – but she had a response for them.

& to ppl replying saying “it’s business” or “most brands do this” YES but usually they’ll add their own logos or designs, whereas PLT here have not only done a sloppy job removing the original labels but also not altered the product in any way to justify the >100% profits made!

She accused Pretty Little Thing of doing a ‘sloppy job’ of removing the original label. She also said that they have ‘not altered the product in any way to justify the >100% profits made!’
One Twitter user seemed particularly disappointed in PLT’s alleged actions: ‘People throw their hard earned into something they’ve admired and wanted all month and when they buy it it’s nothing better than a regular item with new tags sewn into it,’ they wrote.

Another added, ‘Amazon Prime better than PLT next day delivery anyway.’
We have contacted Pretty Little Thing for a response to this claim, but they have not yet responded.
