    Default Debenhams

    Coventry & Warwickshire's branches are safe for the moment: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-48063604

    A good thing on my part - Debenhams is one of the few shops I buy clothes in.

    How very sad for some areas, but it looks like we will be safe for now. I loved the Debenhams store in Canterbury, many good memories of that one, but that seems to be on the hit list. I'm so disappointed, and 116 stores or so surviving doesn't seem the many.

    The main reason I like Debenhams is the size I buy in their shops actually fits me.

    Don't try Primark Lex. Mrs R is normally a size 12/14: but in Primark that can be anything up to a 20!

    The problem is that the sizing and body shapes in the far east aren't like the european ones and nobody has actually thought to exchange details.

    I go nowhere near Primark - mostly due to the snobbery factor!! Basically, I use 5 shops for my clothing needs:

    Debenhams for t-shirts & work trousers
    Next for t-shirts (both shops' XL t-shirts actually fit & are about 5 a piece!)
    M&S for work shirts and unmentionables
    Fat Face and White Stuff for sweatshirts.

    Edinburgh Woollen Mill is also ok for socks & work jumpers.
