cookietrue22 Sun 11-Jan-15 13:14:30

They are lovely. Pricey but really nice. smile

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 11-Jan-15 16:45:45

Love the grey.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 11-Jan-15 16:47:05

These look as if they might be worth a look too

ZammoMcGuire Sun 11-Jan-15 17:00:33

i think i have had the grey before but from Gap

ZammoMcGuire Sun 11-Jan-15 17:01:13

yup love those my Banana rep cranberry ones are a lot like that

BelindaAllWorkedOut Sun 11-Jan-15 17:19:27

They do look nice. As do these

Merriboo Sun 11-Jan-15 17:47:42

They do look nice in the grey! I've tried those ones Belinda and they were fab, though I prefer the Sloan fit ones I have I think. I'm just holding out in the hope that Jigsaw might reduce their Paris trousers which I love.
Rather randomly I picked up some check cheapies from tesco yesterday!

Merriboo Sun 11-Jan-15 17:52:46

these were the unexpected bargain.

ZammoMcGuire Sun 11-Jan-15 18:08:23

ha great minds Blinners - ordered them too

ZammoMcGuire Sun 11-Jan-15 18:08:54

love the tesco ones

how long is the body in them

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 11-Jan-15 18:35:35

I'm bored of black ones, Have two good pairs (but one is too tight at the moment - oops). I do fancy grey ones though.

ZammoMcGuire Sun 11-Jan-15 18:36:50

me too - i feel like the deputy manager of a TSB,

Merriboo Sun 11-Jan-15 18:40:11

Zammo lol! The tesco ones are long enough on me to sit just right on/slightly above my waist if that makes sense?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 11-Jan-15 18:54:49

I hardly wear them now. Struggle to find tops the right length too. Can get a bit Max Wall.

Does this mean we've reached PeakBlack?

I look around public transport on the way to work and see nothing but dull colours, usually black (including my own coat I admit). It's like a film set in a dystopian future.

I bought some cotton elastane BR trousers a couple of years ago, and they just kept getting bigger. They fitted beautifully when I first wore them, then gradually got baggier on the bottom, and didn't tighten when cleaned. As they matched a jacket I didn't want to wash them. BR were fine about it when I took them both back in about May having bought them in January (but clearly hadn't worn them much). It was a shame as they had looked great at first.

I like the colour of the Warehouse ones but not the trousers themselves. (I don't like the crop or the slightly baggy ends or the zips). I'd also say if they have been reduced twice, they must not be great on?.

Anyone see any other in the same colour please? I really like the colour!!!

BelindaAllWorkedOut Sun 11-Jan-15 20:18:47

Similar looking to the Tesco ones, are these Zara ones that are cotton and fit me well

ZammoMcGuire Fri 16-Jan-15 21:03:23


the grey ones are OSSOM - nicely long - prob 33 inches and nice neat waistband and good quality fabric. I am a post Xmas 12 and got a 12

The light wool ones are nice. A classic suit trouser lovely fabric, but not slim. I am thinking about them as I am not sure I shouldnt look at a smaller size and/or wait for a discount code. I think they would be good on someone slightly wider of thigh too. smile

BelindaAllWorkedOut Fri 16-Jan-15 21:43:45

Zammo - would it be worth having the wool ones altered, to be narrower? You could always return and buy when next reduced, and have them altered. Great news on the grey ones!

BelindaAllWorkedOut Fri 16-Jan-15 21:45:23

I just bought these, and the camel version, from Zara in size 8 (aka they are a big cut) for £10.

BelindaAllWorkedOut Fri 16-Jan-15 21:48:22

Link: although they are tighter on me blush

ZammoMcGuire Fri 16-Jan-15 22:09:13

am goint o wait for reduction. A classic pair of trousers are never wrong.

I bought some slim leg black M&S trousers ( slightly stretchy, hold their shape. No zips )
To go with my snazzy NHS white with black trim tunic and sensible flat black lace ups.
No style required but smart and comfy smile
