I would follow any instruction written on clothes. I would buy a nicely cut pair of trousers and they'd look like **** afterwards, shrinking in length and just looking terrible.
maybe that's why i look like i live in a cardboard box...

Cheers for your help guys, Ma has been put in her place and any chance of “practical” clothes being bought from M&S has completely diminished!!!

I’ll have to look about in the aforementioned shops and the ones I usually do and just get a few bits n pieces in!

yeah... where will you keep those 46 pairs of shoes at uni? i really don't think you can take that many
I'll be taking 7 pairs probably. Every day shoes, knee high boots, high heeled boots, dance shoes, sandals, slippers, sports shoes. Argh, and I'm worried how I'll get those to uni and where I'll keep them... 46!!!! :eek:
I think you might have to just pick your favourite ones and leave the others behind.

Hello boys and girls ,

Well I’ll try and keep this brief. Ever since I applied to uni my rents has been nagging me that none of my clothes are very “practical” and that I should purchase some of these “practical” clothes before I go to uni.

Anyways got my results the other day and it appears I’m off to Exeter in a few weeks, however I still haven’t purchased any “practical” clothes (largely because I’ve had no money but also because I didn’t want to).

Most of the clothes I have are from places like Republic/JD Sports but also a few things from Topman/Burton, but I’ve been told these clothes are no good because they can’t go in tumble drier. My ma rekons that “Marks n Spencer polo shirts are practical and ideal for uni” although it has to be said I’m not too keen on the idea.

I was hoping the good people on TSR could help me! :confused:

Is it quite common to see clothes from the shops I’ve mentioned on uni :confused: campuses?

Does anyone wear M&S polo shirts? :confused:

What sorta gear do you wear just around your uni during the day when your not doing anything special? :confused:

Thanks, Adam X

Unless of course you're actually on your way to/from doing some sport.

True, but you STILL don't wear Nike Shox. CHAVALANCHE EXTRAGANZA or what?

I'm a guy so this is probably useless to you: but I go usually go for proper sports clothes that are designed for a workout like Russell Athletic or Champion: decent pair of shorts or track bottoms with a well fitted t-shirt.
They're a bit hard to get in the UK but I still manage to find them. Otherwise Adidas do stuff that is a bit similar. The trouble with other brands is that they do stuff with either a big ugly logo that make you look like a clueless chav or look like replicas for match clothes (and sportsmen don't wear the same clothes for matches/competitions and working out :rolleyes:)

I think it's a bit easier for girls, my running clothes are discreetly labelled as I'd rather be caught dead than in something that makes me look like I'm running from the law rather than training.. However, when I went to try and find non-brand stuff it was almost impossible to find something that was designed more for fitness than fashion!

well don't go for non-brand stuff. Go for brands that are good with clothes for workout and are less the kind of brand whose logo you'll see plastered on a 14-year old chav's hoodie.

Im going to be doing a sports degree, and quite frankly, when i need to wear sports clothes, for the gym or tennis ect, im not gonna care what ppl think. i know im not a chav. And people wont assume you are one just on your clothes

You may be forgetting the fake gold jewelry, hairsprayed back hair, orange-glo tan and 6 layers of cheap make up

Nothing wrong with a polo shirt, wherever it's from. Never bought one from M&S but I'm sure they'd be good-quality.
