... (having given up on Marks and Sparks) and they were made in Bangladesh, would you wash them before he wears them?

SueDonim Wed 14-Aug-19 19:26:09

Nooo, I like fly! More scope for the imagination. grin

Gonegirl Wed 14-Aug-19 19:19:34

blush Alright, flight! grin

SueDonim Wed 14-Aug-19 19:14:14

Would that be a greenfly or maybe a fruit fly, Gonegirl? Not a butterfly, they must use up loads of energy, they're so big! grin

Gonegirl Wed 14-Aug-19 16:58:40

It's only a little fly, isn't it?

Gonegirl Wed 14-Aug-19 16:58:14

Thank you. smile

Gonegirl Wed 14-Aug-19 16:57:39

I am flying, and I've been ticked off by my GS. hmm so don't you start wink

Lisagran Wed 14-Aug-19 16:02:31

I hope you’re not flying, Gonegirl smile - that’s a joke, by the way....... Enjoy the Dordogne!

Gonegirl Wed 14-Aug-19 15:54:24

The original question has been dealt with Millie, It's all in the case, unwashed. grin

Gonegirl Wed 14-Aug-19 15:53:09

C The Premier Man male models are really dishy!

Callistemon Wed 14-Aug-19 14:16:01

I'm going to look at J D Williams' s catalogue, never looked before.

Millie22 Wed 14-Aug-19 14:12:33

I'm loving reading all this it's so funny. What was the original question anyway!

Callistemon Wed 14-Aug-19 14:07:54

I think mine has a problem with colour.
ie what matches what

Rufus2 Wed 14-Aug-19 14:07:37

Don't light a match anywhere near him for the next 30 mins
Why not? It was used in very efficient fire extinguishers years ago; probably still is in NZ!
Unless you simply want to poison him! grin

Callistemon Wed 14-Aug-19 14:06:45

As I have to be seen out with DH I buy all of his clothes
Too right, Daisymae!

Who wants to be seen with a sartorially challenged OH?

Gonegirl Wed 14-Aug-19 13:39:03

The clothes are actually really nice.

I remember my mother used to get my dresses from JD Williams when I was a child. They have been going quite some time.

Gonegirl Wed 14-Aug-19 13:37:03

Yep. Congrats to yours too Dannirae.

My poor old sod is currently in the kitchen trying to sew a button back on his trousers. I am NOT doing it for him!

DanniRae Wed 14-Aug-19 13:24:39

My husband buys all his own clothes too.......sincere congratulations to Mr R too Gone girl? He would say "Thank You" in advance but he's out buying some socks!! grin

Gonegirl Wed 14-Aug-19 13:05:13

I send my sincere congratulations to your DH Jacinta55.

Jacinta55 Wed 14-Aug-19 12:54:54

My husband buys all his own clothes.

DanniRae Wed 14-Aug-19 11:40:01

Well I've googled Thiviers........thought it was somewhere near Blackpool? But I see it is in France and very nice it looks too. Have a lovely time! smile

knickas63 Wed 14-Aug-19 10:11:44

JD Williams stuff is fine - but my DH always prefers it to be washed before he wears it against his delicate baby skin.

Gonegirl Wed 14-Aug-19 10:00:36


Gonegirl Wed 14-Aug-19 10:00:18

Just to satisfying the hairdressers on here, we are going to Thiviers. Or somewhere close to. And I expect the weather to be much the same as it is here.

Daisymae Wed 14-Aug-19 09:19:06

As I have to be seen out with DH I buy all of his clothes. I would not dream of washing anything, might iron the crease out of some shirts though. Btw DH is unable to get out by himself but he's never taken much interest.

Diane227 Wed 14-Aug-19 09:10:58

Forget the clothes! Where are you going on holiday ? Tell all.
Is it somewhere sunny?
Hope you have a lovely time.
