I got them today. They look bloody ace. Even son 1 agreed.
Wooly tights. Chunky knits. Winter pub wear sorted.

MaureenCognito Tue 16-Oct-12 18:55:37

Size 14 though. How tiny are those spaniards?

MaureenCognito Tue 16-Oct-12 19:11:23

Ooh sorry. Hold on.

MaureenCognito Tue 16-Oct-12 19:12:05

Are short. Warning

NettoSpookerstar Tue 16-Oct-12 19:16:27

Oh god, no way could I wear those.
I've just ordered a pair of shorts, these
Though I'm a size 8, I'm short, and large of thigh.

MrsCampbellBlack Tue 16-Oct-12 19:16:37

Oh I really like the look of those - that's a size bigger than you normally are isn't it?

MaureenCognito Tue 16-Oct-12 19:20:33

Yes. And still not huge.

monkeysmama Tue 16-Oct-12 19:29:53

These are really nice too.

MaureenCognito Tue 16-Oct-12 19:42:36

Think important to have all sane colour where poss or it breaks you up a bit.
Plan to wear for winter nights out with fake fur jacket.

JudeFawley Tue 16-Oct-12 20:44:53

I love, LOVE them.

Am slim and long of leg, but am over 40 though.


MrsCampbellBlack Tue 16-Oct-12 20:57:27

Jude - we're all over 40 - not mutton at all grin

JudeFawley Tue 16-Oct-12 21:04:05

That's decided then!

Will wear them with my Artreu boots from TopShop, which I can barely wrestle from my feet, I love them so.

QueenCadbury Tue 16-Oct-12 21:06:53

Love 'em. Have toyed with getting some for years and have decided this year I definately will whilst I'm still under 40 grin

MrsCampbellBlack Tue 16-Oct-12 21:16:11

Have ordered in 8 and 10 and will update

MaureenCognito Tue 16-Oct-12 21:36:53

Jude. Go!

MaureenCognito Tue 16-Oct-12 21:38:07

You tiny pants Cb.

Size up guys!

JudeFawley Wed 17-Oct-12 10:38:14

I have ordered them.

I hope that:

a) we don't know each other

b) I don't look like Caitlin Moran in them.

MrsCampbellBlack Wed 17-Oct-12 10:48:58

I tried the gap wool ones but bizarrely wide cut on the thighs so made me look enormous.

Note I am blaming the shorts not my thighs/hips.

QueenCadbury Wed 17-Oct-12 11:48:53

I have just bought the gap ones in a size 8. Now all I need is some very thick tights and a bottle of wine to be brave enough to wear them!

MaureenCognito Wed 17-Oct-12 19:42:23

Pleated is always a disaster. Makes them look like clown.

noddyholder Wed 17-Oct-12 22:42:41

Might have to get some think if you suit shorts you hae it made tbh

noddyholder Wed 17-Oct-12 22:43:47

Love mango

PerryCombover Wed 17-Oct-12 23:32:45

Oo la la
Loving the mango shorts
