On Saturday I bought a coat from the club shop. Being in a hurry I just looked at the size (XXXL which is what I always buy), paid and left. Later that night I tried it on an found that it was at least two sizes too small!! Now I don't think I've put on all that much weight so I took it back today. The lad in the shop had absolutely no trouble accepting it back and refunding the money (which I promptly spent on something else!). It turns out that there have been a number of returns. It seems they have changed the supplier and this supplier's ideas about sizes is somewhat different to the old supplier!! So if you are buying try it on there and then and don't worry if you seemed to have doubled in size.
Why the hell do I keep putting myself through this tension every week.
