Short update on Mary Portas and her attempt to make and sell completely UK made ladies pants.
It would seem, following testing, which has been carried out, that sizing may be a bit generous shall we say? A further issue seems to be that as the day progresses the pants loose their integrity as in become less hugging shall we say. (The reason for this however, is not the fault of Mary Portas or her manufacturing or quality processes)
I’d like Mary to succeed with her pants. The aim to source the materials and produce them 100% in the UK is very good indeed. But they have to deliver. Mary was aiming to make them as good if not better than the best global brands. She may have a way to go as things stand at the moment as far as her distributors are concerned.
Tonight’s episode should be interesting. She also Tweets @maryportas.
I’ll be interested to see if she is on top of the pants situation and things are going pretty well.
