Anyone bought any nice non-plasticy work trousers recently?
My RL shopping choices are dire and every pair of trousers they sell are all synthetic fabric and look it (shiny, nasty creases, look like school uniform trousers, ugh). I would like some that have some kind of natural fibre component, have a nice weight to them so hang properly, a non-threatening cut (I don't mean boring, but not too fashion-y as they're for work) and in charcoal/black. I am a size 8 and 5'4". Budget up to £50ish although I can go higher for the right pair.
I saw those when I was looking at the Gap site - they look v nice. Anyone have any idea what the sizing's like at BR? I find US sizes never translate properly into UK no matter what they say (have size 0! (!) DKNY dress that if anything is too big, and I'm certainly not a UK4.)
