What do you think?

I doubt they put that picture their on purpose. It wouldn’t make any sense.

YetAnotherNC2017 Sat 02-Dec-17 22:57:05

There! Ffs.

They've got me right. I'd eat all that!

Haha thats tickled me. What bizarre pictures. Can you imagine the marketing meetings? "Well folks the pink dress and tan cullottes didn't go down to well with the ladies. Let's try a dish of spuds and roasted veg. Now for the blokes. How about we get dressed in suits and go canoeing........

I think they know me exactly grin

I definitely look a lot more like the potatoes than like the model in the top picture.

EmmaHealy23 Sat 02-Dec-17 23:15:06

I have no idea what to say but it's really made me laugh!

Cardigan clad canoeing for men and some Brussels sprouts for the ladies...maybe they were hungover that day grin

Bizarre

I think I would be offended if I was a man too......

What page were you on? I've just looked and I can't find those images.

It’s a woman looking all windswept and interesting now.

I think she looks pissed of that the men have gone canoeing and the food is going cold.

Ha, I read get knitted out as 'get knotted' - something you want to tell us M&S? fgrin

Wonder if they've got a weird algorithm that selects the most popular image for each gender that visits the site?

For the love of God, charge your phone!

Bloke in the top right has done well out of the women's knits section.

The bloke in the boat is lovely fsmile

The woman is rather lovely too...shame she's wearing a rather awful jacket!

I get stressed by that too.

Rebeccaslicker Sun 03-Dec-17 10:50:26

Maybe the photos change? Otherwise it is bizarre.

(My phone is on 2% right now, sorry!)

HermionesRightHook Sun 03-Dec-17 10:53:18

That looks like exactly the kind of thing I'm in the market for!

Yabu to let your phone run down to 7%

I think that's David Gandy? Not exactly the most practical gear for canoeing though, especially in this weather!

But I agree that M&S get women wrong on a daily basis - their clothes are hideous these days and have really gone downhill.

Their proofreading is terrible. I once emailed them (yes, ridiculous, I just couldn’t help myself) to tell them they had “bowels” listed under kitchen equipment. They didn’t seem too bothered.

They certainly have their market and buying wrong. Very wrong.
