    Women's work outfits for a fiver at Asda 22nd Jan 08 at 6:07 PM
    What's the deal?

    Last week it was men's suits for £15, this week it's the turn of the ladies. Until 26 February Asda is offering black bootcut trousers and a classic white shirt for a fiver. There are 110,000 available, nationwide in stores that feature George. It might be worth giving your local Asda a ring to make sure they have some in stock before venturing out.

    What do you get?

    It's available in sizes 8 to 24, plus the trousers come in short, regular and long. The shirt is a cotton and polyester mix while the trousers are 100% polyester. It's basic stuff but for a fiver a cut price deal.

    How come it's so cheap?

    By buying in bulk they can get big savings and sell cheap. Plus this is a massive promotion, in the hopes it'll draw more people to asda - helping its image of being 'price competitive' and hoping they'll buy other things too.

    Hi, don't mean to look a gift horse in the mouth, but is this a full suit - sounds like there's no jacket? Or am I misunderstanding the first post?
    Obviously £5 is an unbelievable deal even for Asda but just wanted to clarify?

    The offer is that you get the shirt free with the trousers. The trousers are normally 5 anyway, plus you get the white shirt which is normally 2 odd free with it.

    I must take a look when I am in Asda at the weekend as I need new black trousers anyway. Is the material in the trousers the same as it was in the mens suits?
  • STEG
    Called to ASDA yesterday with my G/Friend, She bought a pair, plus took the offer of the free blouse to, Apparently they fit so well "we" are calling back again today for some more trousers.

    But be warned, they do carry a big sign about "Once they have gone, they are gone"

    So be quick

    Got this- the blouse is rather seethrough (I will only be wearing it under something) but the trousers are fine I also like that Asda's long trousers are actually long enough for my legs.

  • dbelle
    Are the trousers that horrid scratchy type that you normally get with polyester? Or are they soft?

    I bought some 6 tesco value black trousers a while ago and I can't wear them because they, well chafe!

    It's quite annoying that in my local, they have shirts in all the way up to 24, but only have trousers to 16... My mum wanted some but seeing as they didnt go big enough on bottoms... we may try a different branch though, if we're near at any point.
