Last time I bought an item of clothing in there was 2005.I go in there regularly just to have a laugh at their clothes now! EVERYTHING is covered in lace,sequins,buttons,applique or some such shitty garnish.Nothing whatsoever one would want to buy.Cheap crap you could buy in primark for a quarter of the price,flimsy fabrics.Who the hell are their fashion buyers? Are they blind?Even my mother and grandmother think their clothes are frumpy and do not shop there anymore.How much longer do they think they can get away with the garbage they stock?The shops look like ghost towns,staff are unmotivated.They have no idea who they are targeting.Sainsburys Tu,or Tesco F&F have better clothing than they do.They understand their target buyers may not have rake thin toned upper arms,may have big tummys and crepey chests and have clothes to suit. FFS M&S!!!!Get your act together or you will go the same way as BHS,Woolies etc....And you know what?We wouldnt even care!!!

Where do you think OAPs get their beige coats and trousers from?

There's your answer

Foods awful as well.

That is no ordinary biscuit.

Yes the clothes are terrible I like their food though if I could afford it .

I love the food but haven't bought clothes there for 20 years.

Diabolical place - overpriced and underwhelming

I will care. Where will I buy my Percy Pigs from shock

Subtlecheese Thu 14-Sep-17 21:37:52

Percy pigs contain crack. Thus keeping m&s in business.

It's frustrating as it's so so fixable
And the brand is strong

baffledcoconut Thu 14-Sep-17 21:39:04

Percy pigs, sturdy knickers and reasonable kids clothes.

I actually bought a really lovely cream Mac from there a few weeks back. Reasonably priced, looks really good on and I'd definitely buy from there again.

And I'm 33.

In MIL's case, Damart and Chums!

PricklyBall Thu 14-Sep-17 21:39:36

I wonder this every time I pass through on the way to the school uniform department. Surely their school uniform can't be keeping the rest of the store afloat all by itself?

Just to drive the point home, I offer you... the pink crimpelene frilly nightmare that was their signature dress last season! (MNHQ will have to put a trigger warning in the thread title now, mwa ha ha!)

food, underwear and homewares are all good in M&S. It is bizarre how shit their clothes are and it seemingly never gets put right. They should just stick to very basic classic designs.

SaucyJack Thu 14-Sep-17 21:39:49

I think Tesco sell horrible clothes as well.

In fact, most clothes in the shops right now are horrible. Who's buying these strange flared sleeve tunics? No one. Stop fucking making them, and go back to making nice clothes that don't look like Margot Leadbetter on a meth binge.

I buy mens jumpers, knickers and thats about it. Do like their food department though. Hate buying bras from them though as always find the staff to be superfluous and unhelpful

queenofthedump Thu 14-Sep-17 21:40:34

I went in there today and it was absolutely HEAVING!!!

indyandlara Thu 14-Sep-17 21:40:38

One of the better gluten free sections. Except the sausage rolls. My DD won't entertain them.

Iamembarrassed Thu 14-Sep-17 21:40:47

I used to by my bras in there and the Megan bra was the best I have it in 8 different colours and I'm glad I did because they stopped selling it and now all the bras don't fit as well and aren't as comfy for me !

Olaf4fuxache Thu 14-Sep-17 21:41:17

Food is shit also.They dont even bother mixing something like chicken tikka marsala,Just lumps of dry meat with a bland sauce slopped in the middle.

cottonwoolbrain Thu 14-Sep-17 21:42:00

supercilious not superfluous though based on my last attempt to buy a bra there maybe autocorrect got it right

Ankleswingers Thu 14-Sep-17 21:42:26

The clothes aren't good, but the food is wonderful.

Shocked at the pp who said the food is awful shock

Of course M and S won't close down.
