Marks n sparks shoddy cloths

Has anyone else noticed that the quality of Marks and Spence's cloths has deteriorated. My Wife has bought half a dozen ladies cloths this year and she has now given up. She now walks 3 minutes down the road to Primark for underwear. Tights and the odd dress or top as the quality is better. I never thought i would say this but it's true. Only last week after taking a dress back which was worn at our Granddaughter's baptism the hem came down and stitching was coming away down the sides of the dress. As we were walking away the Wife commented to me " It's becoming a bit of a habit is this isn't it"
If Marks and Spencer are cutting corners and finding even more cheaper manufactures than they already have in the middle East then customers will vote with their feet. I for one would rather pay more for cloths that last than the poor quality Marks n sparks are turning out now.
