Its true that the Decatlon pants dont last as long as DIM, in that respect they really are exceptional but it comes at a price, they look really good as well if you are an exhibitionist.

Decathlon ones the material becomes a bit baggy but the elastic & seams remain intact, they become a bit like a favorite scabby jumper, not something you want to put on display.

If ever I get run over on my bike I would want to be wearing DIM :lol:

Did anyone elses mums berate them about what shame they would have if they(the offspring) were to be taken to hospital after a road accident wearing their lucky pants? :lol:

Another DIM fan here, with regular long cycle use as well. Hadn't noticed that Decathlon (great sports shop) do them, will take a look next time.

OH likes the Sunspel boxers. They do last for several years but I wait for the sales before I buy them.

Don’t know about their underwear but their tee shirts etc are good value and stand up to frequent washing very well. I’ve got some long sleeved tops with metallic decoration and I’ve been very pleasantly surprised how good they are. I thought the decoration would quickly come off in the washing machine.

The Decathlon stuff I buy is their premier prix stuff thats usually found in a huge bin at the end of the aisles and are sold in sets of 3 or 4, no frills but excellent quality and durability.

The pants are "Slip Kalenji en micro-fibre" and the socks are named "Artengo"

If one is not in the UK, and as most of the M & S shops seem to have clothes, how does one order their knickers (for ladies and men)? I think even Paris M & S have been closed.

Lidl pants :good: With "Casual Look" on the elastic. No problem, wear well and no sag as yet.
