Fashion that's out of kilter with reality

What is it in last weekend's Sunday Herald that makes me uncomfortable?

Was it your lead item (Sick and disabled forced to work without pay)? The Christmas appeal on the global battle against hunger? The story about the low number of pupils from deprived backgrounds at top universities? Well, yes, all of these.

However, what really got my skin crawling was the obscenity found in The Other Half (There's Something About Mary, Fashion, December 2). If I went out and bought each item I would have to shell out £24,725. What percentage of your readership would seriously consider buying a cardie at £2345? It just beggars belief, and it has no place in a responsible paper.
