M&S don't seem to be selling them anymore.

There's a company specialising in clothes for excema suffers who do school trousers in 100% cotton.

Try here

I got some from john lewis

they shrank a lot, but have worn well

Thanks Verity bit pricey as I have twin boys and every pair we own now has holes in grin.

Can't see any on Next,John Lewis or M&S. M&S did great ones last year.

Having just the same problem! I keep on unpicking the old patches and sewing on new ones. John Lewis is completely out of stock in the smaller cotton trousers - I got them to check the whole country! £26 from Cotton Comfort is very steep but currently the only ones I have found after several hours of searching online.... argh!

Really bloody hell.

Ds has to have cotton due to eczema behind his knees.

If you spot any cheaper ones can you let me know,I'll post if I spot any.

I'm hoping M&S will have some in later,they were 3 for 2 last year and Tefal free too, sooooooo wish I stocked up for this year.

ebay any good?

I'm having a nightmare finding these this year also (well cheaply!).

Asda and John Lewis have stopped doing them.

BHS do them quite cheaply, but none of that size in stock yet.

Tesco did them online last year, fingers crossed will do again this year, not in yet.

I did find somewhere online that did them for £11 a pair, will post the link when I find it.

(£22 bah!!)

Here it is
Are actually £9.99, I worked it out as £11 as buying 5 pairs would be £5 postage!!

Good tip horsemadgal - hadn't found that site. But oh no! they are out of stock in grey size 3/4, & 5/6..... so no good to you MilaMae.

Same as your DS, my DS has eczema (all over legs!) so have to have cotton.

Am going to have to do some more unpicking and patching tonight, I can see! and just hope DS has a growth spurt soon and can fit size 7s.

Oh goodness didn't realise those sizes were out of stock, back to square one then!!

sleepysox Tue 23-Jun-09 19:46:49 have them for £11

they even have junior ones with elasticated backs.



horsemadgal Tue 23-Jun-09 23:38:21

Fab sleepy, free postage too for orders over £35.

sleepysox Wed 24-Jun-09 22:25:11

Ooh hello horsemad,

They look really good. I'll be ordering some tomorrow, so I'll post back here with my feedback!

Sleepy :O)

Was it you who needed age 5?
In stock in BHS now:

Sadly not age 6 for me though!

horsemadgal Thu 25-Jun-09 09:36:50

Gggrrr I got e-mail this morning to say age 6 back in stock. Went straight online to order and showed in stock. By the time I tried to put them in my basket, they had sold out!! angry

Oh well ordered age 5 and age 7, fingers crossed either big or small made!!
