Dear Guernsey Woollens Ltd.

I must complain to you about the quality of your sweaters. I have been using one of your traditional guernseys for motorcycling, and while the fit and warmth are good, I am sorely disappointed with the quality and longevity of the garment. It has frayed at the neck and cuffs, torn at the hem and the knitting has worn thin at the chest. When it started to show signs of wear I turned it around and wore it back-to-front to extend its life. Even so I only got ten years of daily use before it was completely worn out. I took it back to the shop but was unable to get a refund or a replacement, in fact they charged me full price for a new one!

  1. Inside out and inside out/back to front would have given you another ten years.
