Talking pants

Posted by Dom

Jeremy Paxman complaining that Marks & Spencer’s underwear no longer offers ‘adequate support’ led to a heated 10 minute homepage team discussion this morning (hey, it’s a tough life).

Is there really, as Paxman claims, ‘widespread anxiety’ in Britain at the state of M&S smalls? The homepage team, at least, disagrees – with at least 2 of us speaking up for how the store’s pants can last for ‘years’.

What do you think? Does Paxman have a point, have M&S underwear standards slipped, or is it all just one big publicity stunt?

Leave your comments below. Please make them brief.

    I have never shopped in M + S in my life as it is too expensive, thereforeI think it may be one big publicity stunt

    I agree with Pacman that the quality of the pants has dropped massively. Bairdwear and other (now non-existant) British manufacturers made better smalls for our market. M&S now obviously import their underwear with the consequent drop in quality but not consumer price surprisingly. My last lot of purchases from M&S fell apart within weeks but still cost more than others.

    I buy my stuff from Primark – so it doesn\’t matter how long it lasts cuz its so cheap – 6 pairs pants for £2!  (sox also) M&S are pulling our legs…

    Real men go \’commando\’ (for the ignorant that mean \’no underwear\’

    I agree, the last underwear that I bought was the correct size but, the elastic does not have enough give to fit comfortably. I wouldn\’t buy from them again

    I was watching in complete disbelief the GMTV version of the state of the nations smalls of all the things going on in this world was that the best they could come up with?? If they are at a loss as to what to fill their airtime perhaps a reminder that
    to smoke and drive is now an offence
    to eat and drive or apply ones make up will get you a fine
    answering the phone between home and the office KILLS and could land you in prison
    perhaps a report on the road deaths caused by the illigal use of mobile phones would help the nation recognise a real problem a report that states the women who lose their unborn children to the fool that answered the phone is not counted in the stats because it never EXSISTED or a story on how the insurance companies have worked out with the government that the life of a child under 18 is SEVEN THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED POUNDS over 18 the parents get nothing
    I was stunned to see it on the 5pm news is this why I buy a tv licence
