Where to buy completely plain navy age 13+ tracksuit trousers?

OK, OK, so it's not style or beauty, but I really nede to know this....

DS's school insists that they wear absolutely plain (no visible logo) navy tracksuit trousers for sport/ games.

The 'official' ones are available from the local school uniform suppliers for about £25 a pair. They are crap, thin material, and also have gathered, elasticated cuffs, which DS hates.

I really need 2-3 pairs for Sept, as I can't always wash them during the week. But I'd really like to find a cheaper, better alternative to the school shop ones.

They need to be the polyester/nylon shell sort, NOT jogging pants...

Any ideas/ links please?

Last year I got some fab ones from Decathalon, but they don't seem to have them in stock this year sad

Sports shops? I got some for DD in JB Sports. Was last year though....

Thanks Belle - but all the chains have stripes/ logos etc as far as I've seen.

Ixia - those look good - I wonder how big/visible the Donnay logo is?

You can deal with a small logo by colouring with a permanant marker or zigzagging over it with a sewing machine and navy thread.
