I need well fitting skinny jeans

I'm tall, with large hooves. I bought some skinnies in New Look last year and ended up having to buy a 12 to get my humungous clown feet down the farking legs. The arse is baggy and they fall off me. It's not a good look. So, I need well fitting skinnies that will accomodate giant cheesers and still stay up round the arse. Any recommendations? Oh, and I don't want to spend a fortune, although I will go above the £20 the baggy arsed New Look ones cost me.

Try the Miss Selfridges Super Skinny. They are wider at the ankle than usual to accommodate hoofage, the rise doesn't show bum cleavage, they stay up and are super flattering.

I'm a fan of Topshop jeans. Can get my size 7 feet into their Martha skinnies.

I tried topshop and couldn't find any long enough. I'm a 34" leg. Didn't even think of miss selfridge. Surely at my age I will be pointed and laughed at? <gimmer>

How about Cheap Monday? They sell them in Urban Outfitters amongst other places. Good length, higher waist at back to cover arse and I can get my size 7s through them. Come in a good range of colours too.

I also have some skinny cords by Monkey Genes and they have a similar cut - not sure if they do jeans but would assume they do. I bought them in Topshop as a concession but they have their own website too

Second the Miss Selfridge super skinny. Also uniqlo are fab but do tend to gape at the waist a bit
