Can you dye a pair? Or would that aggravate the excema?

At the risk of stating the obvious, can't you alter some too short school trousers?(or have them altered)

Nothing at BHS so far... and the black chinos are lovely but his school only allows 'tailored' shorts.ggrrr.Looks like I'm out of luck doesn't it.

BHS had black last year as I bought the wrong colour

Try John Lewis, I bought navy cotton ones from them, but not checked if they have black.

MrsShrek3- check them but northing. Gah!

idonthaveone - been to Asda and looked online and can't find cotton ones?......Will have a look in Sainsburys (must be one of the only shops I haven't tried much to my husbands disgust).

idonthaveone Wed 24-Apr-13 22:06:48

Either sainsburys or asda both do black shorts

MrsShrek3 Wed 24-Apr-13 22:03:46

just thought. have you checked debenhams recently?

MrsShrek3 Wed 24-Apr-13 22:02:54

Once found them in Matalan, but haven't seen them for aaages. M&S good for everything else in cotton.

Thanks Jax- I mean proper school shorts. Daft isnt it I can get grey but not black shock

sorry that is trousers, but you could have them shortened, if you cant find shorts.

JaxTellerIsAllMine Wed 24-Apr-13 21:58:47

Im sure M&S do cotton shorts in black. I had some. Do you mean the short trousers or PE shorts? school shorts

DS has eczema and every year the search starts for cotton shorts. Now he is in the juniors he has to wear black and I'm finding impossible to find suitable cotton shorts .Have found dark grey but no black. Any advice apart from the specialist eczema shops?
