to think that M and S pants are pants!

I think the quality has really done down. Not enough lycra or stretchy stuff - they end up mishapen and ride up in all the wrong places. They must have changed the formula because I have been buying their 'briefs' multipacks for years.
I was unfaithful and tried a John Lewis multipack. So, so, so much better. Thicker,more lycra and wash really well. Similar price.
Sorry M and S, I think you pants are pants.

must be why their profits are down.Seems it wasn't just their bras they made a boob of.

Yep. I got some from GAP the other day, so much better than M&S.

mousemole Thu 28-May-09 17:43:21

ooh Gap for pants, never thought of that. I bet they are good quality.

I bought some basic pants the other day and they are cut so low you could see more than I would want to show.

Oh darn I need to get some new nick and always go to M&S. They used to be the only ones that didn't ride up.
John lewis post free don't they?

where is everyone else getting their pants ?

EvenBetaDad Thu 28-May-09 18:24:25

Blokes underpants have really gone down hill as well. The last lot I got were really baggy in the wrong place IYSWIM.

I have to agree with Jeremy Paxman on that one.

mousemole Thu 28-May-09 18:28:51

That's interesting Evenbetadad. Was Jeremy moaning about the socks too as I bought DH a huge multipack of socks from M and S about 4 months ago and the toes have worn through nearly all of them already.

Now I know I'm getting middleaged!

Clearly Jeremy is on MN. I think he should out himself wink

mousemole Thu 28-May-09 18:38:50

ha ! I am not Jeremy. Just sick of bad pants.

I got some really cheap primark ones for after Ds was born expecting to throw them away but they have lasted quite well considering the price.

they are lower at the front!

FabulousBakerGirl Thu 28-May-09 18:46:11

and back.......

mousemole Thu 28-May-09 18:53:25

are they ? Hadn't noticed blush

EvenBetaDad Thu 28-May-09 18:56:46

mousemole - yes and yes to your last two posts.

Socks too were not good. Too loose at the ankle and slipping down my foot as well as holes quickly appearing in the toe and underneath.

I did try both socks and underpants from Primark before I got the M&S ones and I have to say the Primark socks and pants were very stylish and snug in comparison. Good price too. smile

I shall be going back to Primark I think.

mousemole Thu 28-May-09 19:00:54

evenbetadad you need to try the John Lewis ones as well if you can. Will try Primark for DH's socks and undies too if you recommend.

tescos socks are good my dh was in his glory on saturday 20% off all clothing and we had £25 worth of tesco vouchers which doubled up to £50 so socks galore he is the only man ive ever known who actually likes receiving socks for a present oh btw tesco pants are ok too

EvenBetaDad Thu 28-May-09 19:10:10

mousemole - thanks for the John lewis recommendation. I had not thought of that. I can get them online too. Great smile

There is one thing that really annoys me about mens pants though. They cost a damn fortune. It really is the one piece of clothing that women can get much cheaper at the same quality level ... erm.. <coughs> ... not that I have ever done a close inspection of course. blush
