    Hello,

    Here we can write our experience about any shop or website and recommend good places to go shopping.(affordable prices )




    I like river island but can be a bit pricey.

    Zara is stylish but so bad quality.

    SNAP.

    £33 for a pair of Ted Baker jeans from Asos yesterday

    Honestly Ted Baker is actually my favourite brand, their stuff is so different to the vast majority of mens clothing around. I want to get a job in one of their shops so I can get staff discount:o:

    No thanks, I'd rather not leave the house if the alternative was leaving the house dressed in clothes from M&S.

    M&S food, yes. M&S clothing, God no.

    Heh, well that's personal choice, I was just throwing out a suggestion. Maybe a Fred Perry full tracksuit is more to your liking?

    Personally I'd avoid having a matching outfit with my parents.

    Meh, I work on a dress smart think smart principle. It helps me at exam time for sure, and I just feel a bit more sleek dressed smart casual.

    They do good boxers too.

    You can dress smart without shopping at M&S... In fact a lot of designers atm seem to be mainly smart stuff, with the exception of, surprisingly, Armani.

    But yeah, their boxers are good, wearing some now. :yep:

    There's looking smart, and then there's looking like a care assistant who lives with his mum and knows all the words to every song from Wicked.

    No one under the age of 35 should really be buying anything aside from sandwiches, boxers and gifts for their grandparents from Marks and Spencers. Its entirely possible to be classy and well presented without shopping there

    It's ok to buy general food from there though. Their cheesecake is :coma:

    Tbh people keep telling me that their suits are cheap and decent, but I managed to get a designer suit for 50 quid in some random shop on Oxford Street so no thanks!
