Do skinny cords ALWAYS wrinkle at the knees?

I really like these from Jigsaw but look at the wrinkles on e models knees - in every single colour!!!

I tried Jigsaw skinny cords a few years ago and sent them back because they were so wrinkly but I really really liked them on and they were super-comfortable.

So is it just Jigsaw cords which do the wrinkly thing or is it common to all skinny cords?

IME they always wrinkle at the knees. It's the nature of the fabric IMO.

Yes but they are so comfy I forgive the sagging.

Mine do too. I just let them get on with it.

Mine don't though....

It's hit or miss I think, depending upon how something is cut.
Mine are from Aubin&Wills and I had to try about 5 pairs of the same size to find the best fit. Really annoying but true.
Would not risk buying cords online ever again.

Also, knee wrinkles aren't so bad, it's the ones that can form at back of thighs that don't impress me.

Perhaps you need to size down?

Okay, not so unusual then. Would prefer if they didn't though. Hope to be in Jigsaw next weekend so will try a few pairs on.

My Uniqlo ones wrinkle less than that...
