Trousers too Tight to Mention

I have much to say but can’t type long because I have knackered a finger playing ‘touch’ football with the nephews (no photo by popular request), and I need what little use I have in my hand to keep hitting the refresh button on the Guardian’s over-by-over commentary for the Test Match.* So I’ll just have to leave you with the news that Levis have inexplicably changed their sizing policy so that the size I have been wearing ever since I was in uni unaccountably won’t do up comfortably. At least, I think that’s what the problem is. There’s certainly no other logical explanation that I can think of.

*Only England could manage lose from here, so I’m watching with fascination to see how they do it.

    Yes, those barstewards at Levis have snuck in & adjusted all my old pairs to the new sizing policy as well :>D

  2. Lola says:

    They seem to have shrunk all the clothes in my wardrobe as well! Busy little bastards.

    M&S too. Hope the finger heals quickly, and best wishes for the rest of the holiday.

  4. disgruntled says:

    hehe – at least the finger doesn’t stop me cycling so I should be able to fight back the trouser menace

  5. WOL says:

    They don’t make Levis in my size: “TDB*.” There’s a reason “Twinkle Tons” nests on the ground, which has nothing to do with lack of trees. . .

    *Too Big!

    Flighty – don’t, we’re watching the weather anxiously for our flights home
    WOL – much safer than the treetops, frankly

    I have heard “we really can’t boxxox this now” How long has he been following the England cricket team??
    And by the way, if you find a decent pair of jeans that actually reach the waist, please let me know.

    Sorry, but I can’t abide cricket, perhaps it’s Welsh thing? Sorry to hear about Levi’s changing their demographic sizing policy to your disadvantage, but Christmas is really the wrong time to try anything on, as I’ve found out to my cost. Especially since I haven’t been cycling for a month now, it doesn’t take long for those pounds to creep back. You seem to be having a great time stateside.

    KitKatCot – I know, I’m not counting my chickens till they’ve hatched, grown up, and got into university on this one.

    It’s well known that trousers by law are no longer allowed to reach anyone’s waist. The only solution is walking and outdoors shops – it seems the huntin’ shootin’ fishin’ hikin’ woman doesn’t hold with any of that nonsense about hipster trousers

    Welshcyclist – it holds a strange fascination over me. And I hear you about Christmas but we can’t afford Levis in the UK so have to stock up while we’re over here
