Because the quality's total carp. My mum bought a pair and after a couple of wares and washes they were mishappen and waring quite obviously.

I wear them for work and I must be mishapen too because i haven't noticed that with them, or don't care enough what they look like to notice, one of the two anyway.

The pair I have had several months have been fine though. What worries me is how they are made but I can't see that they have been made in conditions worse than other items costing 50 or more.

The material is thinner than some other jeans I have but not by much.

If you want posh you can get it from a charity shop for about a 5, either that or I have lost all sense of "fashion".

I have some too - they're about a year old now, and still OK. I cut the bottoms off and roll them up a bit - trendy me

Don't worry, they can be used online for home delivery.


my issue with that is that they will deliver along the main road but will not drive 500yds up it to the village...its really annoying as all the other online shops deliver (argos, wollies etc).

I've been sent another load of vouchers, first one 10 off a 70 spend. Even with Christmas approaching I'm not sure I need to spend that much.

They really don't care if you take it away in a wheelbarrow...


when I bought my wheelbarrow I pushed my daughter home in it she loved it.

I tend to go to the supermarket once every month, maybe a bit less and stock up. As I can't drive I either buy online or use a local cab service to bring it home. ordering online most likely keeps cars of the road and the van will be driving about whether it come to my house or not so what extra miles are there anyway?
