Is this a good idea?

Pity, nothing like wearing that damn thing year round.
As mentioned on previous threads, they really do not take school sports as seriously here as they do your side of the pond.

How true. You brought back memories of Bobby our Sports Master wearing his ragged, threadbare baggy green tracksuit bottoms with shirt and tie making us 14 year olds practice rugby tackles on a concrete floor.

I live close by a very expensive school in Edinburgh. Saw a young lad come out of the gate last week wearing a "Stone Island" jacket. You are talking £500.

Felt like mugging the little c**t myself!
And the strange thing is that, in all probability, it was made by the same exploited 10 year old kids, in the same factory in Indonesia as the shit made for Sports Direct. It'll just have come out of the factory on a different pallet.

Such is the power of brand names.

As my former partner's dad said about my partner's half-brother; "he'd wear a clown outfit if it had a designer label".

Nothing so Ally unfortunately. :(

For a number of years I had these.

I say a number of years because they're made of kryptonite or something and they just don't wear out.
They were incredibly comfortable as I recall but wearing them now marks you out as a yogurt knitter.
I had some of those, known at my school as Cornish pastie shoes.

School bans 'poverty-shaming' coats

I'm a bit conflicted, if I'm honest.

On the one hand, you have unbearable, pushy, show-off parents who want to parade vicariously their materialistic aspirations through their entitled, over-indulged brats of children.

On the other hand, you have over-protective educators who spend more time interfering and imposing their own Socialist principles of dull homogeneity on the lives of the impressionable rather than enabling them to properly speak, read, write, count and communicate before they leave school.

Mind you, being Liverpool the coats are probably cheap designer label knock-offs from down the market, in any case.
Pathetic, So if you want your kid to have a decent coat that is high quality and will last years as well as keeping them warm and dry you cant?, because some other kids cant afford them?

Sorry but that´s not how life works and this is the formula used to create another snowflake generation. Next they will be banning british bulldog and football at break time...oh wait.

Can anyone explain why we don't have a national school uniform policy, with just a different badge or tie for each school? Saves masses of confusion and ensures that there is no difficulty in getting stuff sorted for kids?
Yes. Vested interests.

A £500 designer label coat does not guarantee high quality or durability, it simply indicates the purchaser is a mug with more money than sense and an "I'm better than you because I'm richer" attitude.

Sounds like a lot of work.

Would it not be quicker to just shoplift the jacket?
Quite right. I just didn't see the obvious flaw in my argument.

I was thinking volume over quality

That is a just stupid slur on the reputation of good shop lifters everywhere...


Why wouldn't they just shoplift the 'cool jackets'in the first inst? The rest of the time would then be theirs to shoplift whatever they want without having to flog the stuff to buy the 'cool jackets' they could get for free anyway.
Mea culpa, see post #77

This was the only acceptable coat for school.

You could zip up the hood fully to make a fur lined tunnel to look through then one of your "mates" could grab the end and swing you around to his delight.

Also good to wait until someone put their hands into the slash pockets on the chest and give them a shove watching them flail like a thalidomide victim before they went creaming into the deck.

Makes me misty eyed just thinking about it.
We were banned from zipping up the full hood as one kid (somewhere allegedly) walked out in front of a bus without his peripheral vision, one of the Parka children (for we were probably 10) put a used condom we found on the way to school on her desk, it didnt take long for someone to grass him up.

He is dolescum now, wonder if that was the changing point?
