Example sentences using "Clothes"

Q: Please show me example sentences with If I go shoppoing for clothes, but i couldn't find what I want after trying on some clothes. So I decide not to buy anthing and look around other shops. In this case, what expressions / sentences can I use? Thank you! .
A: Hello !

In this case, you can say to the store staff:

‘Thank you for letting me try some things on. Sadly, none of it was quite right.’

OR

‘Some things were ok, but still not quite right. Thank you, though!’

OR

‘The fit of these weren’t quite right. I’ll keep looking! Thank you, though.’

OR

‘These weren’t quite right for me. Thank you, though! I’ll be back to see your new stock when it comes.’

^^ All of these expressions are very gentle and polite. They are casual enough and they aren’t direct. I think they are nice ways of saying no thank you. 😊

Also, as a bit of a joke, you could say:

‘Ah, I think what I tried looks better on the hanger/on the shelf 😅. Thank you, though!’

^^ This is a cute expression to say the clothing looked better on display than on me. It’s a soft way of saying no and the staff will probably laugh a bit.

I hope these are helpful! 😊 (I personally own a clothing shop, so I hear and use these expressions a lot!)
Q: Please show me example sentences with 買い物してる時、試着後で買わない場合の例文(how to say after you trying some clothes and you don’t want those?).
A: “Thanks but no thanks” is something I’ve said where people tend to be younger. Sometimes I say “theses didn’t fit” and hand them back. In America the people at the store usually ask if you want to keep what you tried on and so I just say “no”. If they don’t ask I’ll go up to them and just say “hi, where do I put these I don’t want them” and they point me to a hanger or take them from me. I hope it helps.
