Er, I buy pants at M&S too... and I know what size I am there, and they give the corresponding measurements in inches on the back of the packets so I can check if they've changed them. I don't buy all my clothes at M&S, though (I don't buy new clothes that much anyway). And knowing what size I am in knickers doesn't help at all with knowing what size I am in shirts.

Or by "pants" do you mean "trousers"?

I'm confused. What chain breaks down? What exactly are you saying is weird gurl-behaviour on my part?

I do buy trousers in M&S -- it's the only place I can guarantee being able to get smart comfortable trousers. When I was a rebellious teenager who wanted to dress in crazy tie-dye shit, I thought M&S was the sort of place mums shopped; now I realise that's because mums are sensible and want to buy quality clothes that will last (and also because mum is short & M&S is good for trousers for short people). If I bought pants for myself, I tended to buy them in places like BeWise (M&S, being a place where grown-ups shopped, was too expensive; BeWise was like the poundstretcher of clothes).

But I always try to buy second-hand clothes when I can. So M&S is not my default place to buy stuff; charity shops are my default place to buy stuff. I do look out for M&S stuff in charity shops, though, because I know M&S's sizing & I "trust the brand".

I don't buy second-hand pants. END OF.

I think you may be giving my throwaway post about seeing some nice trousers more thought than it really deserves. :-}
