I need a new pair of trousers to wear for work (smart ish office), and I can't find any that fit my exacting requirements. I'm sure it shouldn't be this hard, but I'm stumped. Can you help?

Black or dark grey
Not polyester
Slim / straight leg (not skinny, not tapered)
Full length (not cropped or ankle skimming)
Flat fronted (i.e no crease down the front like suit trousers)

I think that's it. Basically I want a pair of trousers that are the same style and shape as a simple pair of slim straight leg jeans, but that aren't denim.

Hit me with your suggestions!

I almost posted exactly this a few months ago! A lot of work trousers are heavily polyester so I wanted some with some cotton in. I got some from wallis in the end, possibly these m.wallis.co.uk/en/wluk/product/black-cotton-trouser-5983816.

m&s

Look a bit odd on the model but then most M&s stuff does - might be worth trying on?

Budget? You could try Gap or Banana Republic. How about these?
