Can anyone point me in the direction of any?

I am desperately seeking good quality workwear basics for an 'Autumn'. I picked up a brown wool M&S pencil skirt on eBay last year. Said machine-washable in the label, but I have somehow ruined it....

The full wish list is chocolate brown pencil skirt, chocolate brown slim trousers, khaki pencil skirt and camel pencil skirt. A lot of pencil skirts, but they suit my shape. Preferably 100% wool or high quality blend fabric. To be fair, Im not that fussed about colour as long as they go with my Autumn tops....

I'm desperate!

I love this camel one from Jigsaw.

Have you looked on the Kettlewell site? www.kettlewellcolours.co.uk/
I'm an autumn and I've bought a few things from there over the years. They are quite expensive but the quality is good.

John Lewis have a few, including a very nice Hobbs dark khaki one

Pantsalive I don't think that wrap style will work on me but I will definitely try it.

Love love the Hobbs one and hadn't seen it on the JL site before. Thanks

And Ive never bought from the Kettlewell site before. Don't think they have what I need right now, but I will keep in mind for future colour dilemmas.

Anything chocolate brown?

This one looks more black to me but might be worth investigating.

Marc O'Polo - probably a bit too casual

Or you could get one made-to-measure

This skirt is rather nice and they also do slim trousers. You just have to ignore that they come from a corporate workwear site. Good percentage of wool though...

Yikes, Pants, yikes! £85 and I'm not even paying for any contribution to their marketing budget <grin>

Saw this and thought of you - Carine Roitfeld collection at Uniqlo. £29.90!

Thanks pants. I am grateful that you live said sad life grin. I saw them too but had already taken delivery of (and immediately wore) the Hobbs skirt you found. It's really nice (although 3 times the price - grr!).

Thanks for thinking of me

Glad the Hobbs one is good. The material will be at least 3x the quality of the Uniqlo one!
