They are vile - I'm sure you get electric shocks from them. M &S used to do plain cotton ones in black,as did Woollies, but no sign of them so far.

Have just linked to some on this thread. Don't think they are 100% coton though, but they are certainly not like those awful shiney ones.

JL do polycotton shorts which are lighter than rugby shorts.

Diagon - have just thanked you for info about the Next shorts on nutcracker's link to another PE kit thread !

M and S. Jersey shorts. In black. 100% cotton. Only start at age 7.

I tried to order some uniform instore at M and S yesterday and lots of things out of stock. Assistant said the big uniform launch is next week so stocks should increase. Bet they stop the 3 for 2 offer at the same time!

JL also do them in black, royal blue, red and white etc but they are found under "boy's shorts" even though they are unisex!

I think Sainsbury's had them before come to think of it - they should be doing a school uniform drive pretty soon !

the boys wear the shiny ones in general (because they are like football shorts I guess)

most of the girls don't though (dd does for some reason - I'm not sure she's twigged that she's the only one with shinies yet )

don't iron the cotton ones anyway...he's never felt he's the odd one out in cotton ones so far and other boys have them
I also loathe and detest the football style trainers with laces up the side of the shoe - he doesn't have those either

Adams had them earlier in the year - not sure if they still do, but worth a look.
