woohwey yes

Love them, I have 3 brown & 1 navy, wear with converse and they look fab!

but therein lies the problem: they are comfortable because they give, ergo they get baggy in places eg arse knees you don't want baggy

am v tempted by the gap and M&S ones though

of course if you get the wretched boden skinny cords they give everywhere apart from around the waist because of the stupid hotchpotch cotton lining <glares at lunch-expanded waist line>

i have wedge desert boots
the nice hting is also that you can wear a denim jackay with them

The Uniqlo cords don't go baggy in the knee. They stay nice and tight. I love mine too.

yes mine arent as skinny as I would have liked but might put in tumble dryer a bit too long.

Uniqlo cords

dexter73 Mon 22-Oct-12 13:39:25

The Gap ones look nice but are only 30" leg.

MaureenCognito Mon 22-Oct-12 13:40:14

Callmecordelia Mon 22-Oct-12 13:44:04

Love my Uniqlo cords, have two pairs!

naughtymummy Mon 22-Oct-12 13:45:14

The uniqo cords look great. But v confused about size. I am a uk 10 (28" waist) am I right in thinking I need to buy a 25 ??

vintageviolets Mon 22-Oct-12 13:45:20

Ah, I think I am showing my age blush

Mine are all straight leg, I wear with converse, t.shirts, hoodies ect. Vintage style, navy, cream & dark brown.

Gap look nice - are they a very low rise?

aquavit Mon 22-Oct-12 14:12:12

has anyone tried the M&S ones that are unfortunately called jeggings?

they look quite nice except in the sofa colours but I'm suspicious about bagginess and am nowhere near a uniqlo

cazza40 Mon 22-Oct-12 14:14:34

I have the Next skinny cords and am really pleased with them - thay have not gone baggy at the knees - only problem with cords is they seem to pick ups so much fluff !

MaureenCognito Mon 22-Oct-12 15:12:32

Get a 25

MaureenCognito Mon 22-Oct-12 15:13:35

I look a nob in converse. Plus are cold brr. Hence the wedge lace ups.
Plus they just got me a wolf whistle from a gormless NEET

MrsCampbellBlack Mon 22-Oct-12 15:21:32
