Which shops do you visit for clothes? Do you go to shops in person or are you an online shopper?

I don't spend an awful lot so I never really stray into the big designer shops. I tend to stick to Zara, and will go to TK Maxx when I'm in the mood to hunt for patterned shirts and knitwear or fancy some brightly coloured socks. I do also like Fat Face for those more rugged, beach worn days.

When it comes to clothes I’m strictly shopping in person. The very few times I’ve bought stuff online, the items turned out not fitting well.

I need to do it in person as brand sizes are so interchangeable. How the same waist size in two different brands can differ so much is beyond me. I hate shopping in person too as clothes shops are always fucking roasting and I need out in about 5 minutes.

Because I don’t think sizes are even fully standardised. I do recall the EU was trying to get this done a couple of years ago but they failed to agree on it.

The only good thing about Zara is they have light, stretchy cheap white shirts which are perfect to wear to a suit.
Everyhthing else is offensive.

Suits I’ll get from a suit specialist shop if for a special occasion . In terms of jeans and UK high street River Island are the best fit for me.

I do love a shortlegged guy. And even rags would look great on Lucille.

Uniqlo though? Mama, this is garbage.

The BOXY nature of COS & Arket is a godsend for my frame.

It always amuses me when I'm on the continent and I find that they still have C&A. I remember they went under as I was shopping for a fetching FLEECE in a WARRINGTON shop back in 2003 (don't ASK).

' Good buy and goodbye! ' the slogan said.

More like good riddance and good SHITTANCE

Or something

I’m pretty sure everything I’ve bought in the last 5 years (except workout clothes) is from a thrift store
