Thread Name: BS: Girls' school trousers uk
Subject: RE: BS: Girls' school trousers uk
My daughter's school not only gives you the list of stuff they need - it HAS to be from specific suppliers, and is only available in a couple of shops. This is supposed to counter the whole "fashion trousers" thing, and create a genuine uniformity in the uniforms.

The quality of both the skirts (she won't wear trousers, as none of her friends do) and the blazers is total crap. Especially the blazers, which are affordable but feel cheap and nasty. I'd rather pay more for a blazer that would last a couple of years and still look smart, rather than a synthetic one. Mind, at least they're machine washable.

So I feel your pain, Liz.
