How about grey tracksuit bottoms for the boys? I want to get DS some for September but as usual, I haven't found any yet. Not that I've looked that hard!

WWW- If you still have the receipt, take them back, get a refund and buy double the amount, thats what I would do

WigWamBam Mon 25-Jul-05 18:17:44

I'm sorely tempted, kid

kid Mon 25-Jul-05 18:18:40

they might have other things in the sale too, just to tempt you to part with your money!

how much do M&S school trousers cost? Are they worth the difference in quality over Sainsbury's (currently £3.75/pr).

Furball Mon 25-Jul-05 21:18:54

fqueenzebra - No idea on quality as I am pondering all this uniform maklarky for DS when he starts in September, But M & S trousers were £3 or £4 on the net when I looked the other night.

I got some school blouses for £3 each there yesterday, reduced from £11. Now off to look at skirts on the website!

I don't want school trousers though, I really want tracksuit trousers. He doesn't have to wear uniform but I want to save his clothes! I haven't noticed school trousers in Sainsbury, will start looking over the next couple of weeks.

Oh are the trousers reduced too? Ds1's are flapping somewhere above his ankles but I refused to buy new ones before the holidays. They are good quality, zebra, they wash and wear well. Though two years ago all the hems on ds1's fell down but I wrote and complained and got vouchers worth more than I had spent on the trousers (and my Mum sewed them back up, yayy). Last year's ones were fine though so I think it was a one-off.

Good grief! Our school holiday only started today - how blinkin' organised you lot are. Won't they grow a bit in 6 weeks?

hoxtonchick Mon 25-Jul-05 22:41:03

sainsbury's in islington have school clothes kid, i saw them today.

kid Mon 25-Jul-05 22:42:34

I only go to the sainsbury in Dalston HC. I know they have uniforms in there the week the kids go back to school in september. I also know they get reduced to half price the following week!

As of today, I am no longer driving, I've got the hump

i swear by m&s school trousers, you can tumble dry them and they don't need ironing. even if you dry them on the radiator/line they still don't need ironing as long as you fold them flat.

have had lots of other brands and darling ds1 always puts the knees through them for some reason and they seem to go bobbly after a couple of washes.

fairydust Mon 25-Jul-05 22:46:30

these are reduced skirts - they are the normal price there part of the new essential range they've brought out in store.

fairydust Mon 25-Jul-05 22:46:51

there aren't reduced sorry

vickiyumyum Mon 25-Jul-05 22:49:26

i just ordered the boys trousers and they were from £4 but they have one to two week wait so i would order them now if you are interested.

sorrel Mon 25-Jul-05 23:08:48

FD are the age 11 skirts that price?

tortoiseshell Mon 25-Jul-05 23:12:05

I got some polo shirts from M&S - packet of 2 for £4 - bargain!

fairydust Mon 25-Jul-05 23:15:20

there we're all sizes from what i could see.

sorrel Mon 25-Jul-05 23:19:24

wow will be straight round in the am.
thanks for the tipoff

Janh Mon 25-Jul-05 23:30:55

DS2's size trousers (13) were £11 when I got a sale email. Have they been reduced or are the cheap ones different?

Janh Mon 25-Jul-05 23:34:59

Oh they're different - both 65 poly 35 vicose but the more expensive ones say "non-iron". Think I'd risk it!

sorrel Tue 26-Jul-05 17:33:50

boohoo NONE LEFT !!!M&S sold out of big sizes.
went to woolies and got a nice one there instead with a frill at the hem.
