Has anyone ever heard of or ordered from them? I have personally never heard of them but really want some tweed shorts to wear with tights and boots for autumn and I think I like these yesstyle but am warying of ordering from an "unknown" website?

Website aside, will I look like a fool if I try to get this tweed shorts woolly tights combo look?

I've never heard of the website, which seems to be a UK retailer of Chinese merchandise. So you may be able to get the shorts on eBay for less. Btw the shorts are completely syrhetic - ok for you? If you don't use this website, ASOS may have something.

Duvet I too am a devotee of the shorts / tights / boots combo. Saw some remarkably nice (not tweed, I'm afraid) smart grey ones in Primark last weekend.

BTW, I was seriously tempted by a leather-look pair in Top Shop as well so I may not be the best person to advise!)

Oh I love the shorts,tights look. I worry I might look like I'm trying a bit too hard though or look a bit mutton (38). I would also need to buy shorts, tights and boots. <shame> grin
I might be brave and give it a go, have just remembered I have some tweedy trousers from a charity shop I could make into shorts. Although I think biker type boots might be needed?

What size are you? I bought a really nice pair of topshop tweed shorts - size 12 - on ebay but they're too small for me. They're yours for a fiver!

DuvetHog Thu 10-Oct-13 13:24:46

Aww Daim I'm about a 26 - 28" waist so 8 - 10. Are they a small fit? I could b very tempted! What colour are they?

I just bought some Tweedy shorts from White Stuff,they are fab and called Owen.They were £35.00 but I had a discount code.

They're really nice - a grey tweed, and a nice cut. I can send you a photo if you like. They were way too small and I'm normally a 12 so the fit must be small. PM me with your email address if you want a pic.

Daim, can you alter your settings to allow me to pm you? Thanks

That website looks a bit weird to me. The sizing also looks strange - says they are plus size?

I've also been looking for tweedy shorts. I looked at the white stuff ones but the cut wasn't right for me. Am also v fussy on materials/itching.

I seriously considered some by Tommy Hilfiger that mig on the vogue thread found for me but they were over budget. I've ended up ordering some from John Lewis, they are also Hilfiger but from the children's section, I am an 8 and have ordered a 16yrs, they look lovely so am hoping they fit!
