Trouser Instructions

Manufacturers and retailers alike are hastily reconsidering their policies following a landmark court ruling made yesterday. Mr Gervais Slack's successful bid to sue the makers of a pair of Eezeepress polyester trousers for not including instructions with their product has sent the clothing industry into turmoil. Mr Slack claimed that the lack of proper directions was instrumental in his mistakenly trying to get both feet down the same trouser leg, and his subsequent fall from a hotel bedroom window into the path of the No. 68 Shopper's Special to the Arndale Centre.

Eezeepress has made no official statement about the ruling, although it is understood that the company intends to appeal. Meanwhile, many retailers have already withdrawn their trousers from sale and are considering doing the same with a number of other lines. This follows the news that a woman from Doncaster has recently filed a claim for whiplash after trying to put her head through the armhole of her cardigan.
