War of the school uniforms: Tesco now £3.75 while M&S makes rubbish

12 June 2009


When Paul and I discovered Andy in the play room jumping around ecstatically yesterday in his new £4.75 ASDA school uniform kit, we got rather jealous.

So today, we ventured into the big city to hunt for our own uniforms.

We discovered that Tesco is now selling uniform kits at £3.75, joining in the battle of the 'Uniform War'.

That works out cheaper than 450g of Tesco Skinless Chicken Breast Fillets.

But as the savvy shopper that Paul is, he discovered just down the road that M&S is kitting out uniforms made from utter crap. We mean that literally.

Selling uniforms made out of plastic bottles, and shoes made from leather shaving waste, M&S states that this is "to conserve the earth's natural resources and protect the environment for future generations". Touche.

So where are you buying your school uniform this weekend?
