Default Marks & Sparks Tux

I need a tux with all the trimmings.

Marks and Sparks usually come up trumps. No need for bespoke as I'm normal shape.

Question - where's the bestest M&S in Dubai? Is it Festival City? Do they sell DJs?

Cheers BE

why not go to the outlet mall - it'll be cheaper and they can always take it in if needed.

You are going to be sick down it, no point in 'splashing out' on a markies one!

don't know whether they sell djs in m&s here, as far as which on is better, i think festival city and dubai mall ones are much of a muchness...

there is a shop in satwa called murads on diyafah street that sells and hires them, can't imagine it is expensive, so may be worth trying them...it's near haagen dazs...oh it's also near that pierre cardin knock off shop, they sell them too i think...

MM, xx

On the Al Ain Rd near the Sevens Rugby Stadium about 30kms out of Dubai. A big dome thing on the right side. Only worth a visit if you have a family.

Got one stuffed in a box back home. Haven't worn it for years. But between ages 18 and 25 I did wear it very regularly.

promised the kids a return to kidzania so may check the Dubai Mall one out this weekend.

Oh to be able to somehow transport myself to the M&S at Shoreham Holmbush Centre. Great selection there plus get the VAT back at the airport.
