The sizing was also quite odd, I went a size smaller for all the shirts and then tried two sizes bigger for the dress and it still wouldn't fit, very strange altogether. Another thing that really annoyed me (perhaps a little irrationally) were the buttons, if I'm paying fifty quid for a shirt then I certainly want a lovely button on it (buttons are very important to me, my button box is one of my most prized possesions).
I'm sorry for that little rant, I did end up buying two of the polka dot shirts, one of which I hadn't seen on the website so I was pleasantly surprised. Of course my love of wearing too much of everything means I'll eventually wear both shirts together a liitle like this.
After raiding the ladies section Anna and myself buzzed it over to then mens section in search of lovely cardies and the like. Unexpectedly it was far bussier than upstairs, we were pushed out of the way by men running towards the trenches and there were frantic women on the phone to their husband or son 'WHAT SIZE ARE YOU? HERE YOU, YOU'RE SKINNY LIKE MY LAD, WHAT SIZE IS THAT COAT YOU'RE WEARING? 38? LUV WOULD A 38 DO? OK OK.'
The whole collection was a little underwhelming but we've all got a few more lovely shirts although our bank balances are considerably worse off.
