Looking for comfy tracksuit bottoms that I can be seen out in

Some days when I want to pop to the shops or pick the kids up from a club all I want to wear is a comfortable pair of tracksuit bottoms.

When I've recently looked for a new pair, to replace my tatty lounging round the house ones, the length is not quite right.

I think I need approx 31" leg. Where can I get a pair?

Superdry. Very comfy. Respectable to be seen out in (At least I think so!)
I have them in this colour and in navy. They are very long but have an unfinished hem so you can easily shorten them.

Just don't get them in light grey - shudder.

nike have some lovely black ones, bought some in Sports Direct, comfortable but look smart.

Don't laugh but M&S cotton rich jiggers are pretty good and come in short, medium and long.

£9.50 a pair, hold their shape well (no baggy knees) and still fit after a wash and tumble dry grin

Jiggers. ;)

Lol I did actually mean joggers (darn phone actually spell checks it to jiggers!!).

Checked them out and M and S site also wants to turn joggers to jiggers. Shall we all just call them jiggers smile

I have these from Uniqlo in black, I wear them slobbing round the house and with ballet flats and a leather biker and big scarf they look presentable in my head

Thanks owlmother, so is Superdry still ok, it hasn't reached Abercrombie levels yet? IYSWIM

Pipkins what is it about light grey that is wrong - need to be educated!

and Lozis will have to check out these jiggers that you speak of! Do they make you feel like dancing when you put them on ;)

Thanks for the other suggestions ladies, can go out and try these on also. smile

Rocksie - John Travolta has nothing on me lol wink

Seriously though I have been impressed by the jiggers, NO make that joggers from M&S grin.

I did buy some budget ones from Asda which were fine for £5 but did the ultimate ankle flapper job after a wash!!!

Rocksie I absolutely hate light grey joggers. The sights you see when you haven't got a gun grin. They have baggy bums, and elephant legs and don't look good on anyone. Wear them inside by all means but they should not be worn around Tesco eg. The ones with cuffed ankles are the worst as they ride up the leg. It's one of my pet hates and would never, ever wear them.

Buskers those fat face ones look very like Superdry I reckon. Only a fair bit cheaper. I don't wear joggers out of the house but only because I'm 52 and have a big bum. I would though if they looked ok on me.

Mine are navy skinnies from Hollister. Really nice quality.

You'll need your head torch to go in though grin

Thanks Pipkins. Don't want to be one of those! (I don't have elephant legs though thankfully)
