    I thought that was part of the job spec. Long hair in bun (grey of course), skirts with elasticated waists, flat shoes in beige. When you're not doing knitting, you should be baking in the kitchen. Stop being a rebel!

    Ok putting my 2 peneth in here I almost never go to the High street shops. I have shopped with Ambrose Wilson catalogue for years. You can order 2 sizes at once and try on in your own home. Send back what you don't want FREE of charge. Send for a catalogue, but I always shop online. Associated with a myriad of other catalogues you can flip from one to another and your basket should go with you ( it doesn't always) Crazy Clearance is part of the group great clothes at discount prices.

    I wear chinos for work :) I tend to always but from next, but they are VERY generous in their sizes. I always drop down a size in there

    Same You cant go wrong with black/navy chinos and a polo. Ive gone with M&S outlet though as a) cheap B) not very fitted. Need a bit of freedom in mine for when I'm breaking engines/ pumps down.

    This grannie also wears jeans, all day every day, and always from M&S. Agree that M&S sizing has a mind of its own, hit and miss, but Per Una seem to get it better than other ranges. I buy on-line as we have no M&S locally, so do get annoyed when things don't fit.

    Me too, (not actually a granny yet but plenty old enough to be one!) I always buy M&S online. Not a lot of choice in my size but they nearly always fit. (Well, as well as anything can 'fit' at size 24!)
