Look at the little video clip!!!! It really made me chuckle!!!!

I quite like them, unfortunately I haven't got the legs for skinnies. envy

Greengardenpixie Sat 25-Jul-15 20:36:17

she actually can hardly turn in them they have so much material!

MrsMummyPig Sat 25-Jul-15 20:38:59

I can't see the video clip, the page keeps going blank after a quick glimpse sad

They are described as a trouser grin

They are horrible.

SirChenjin Sat 25-Jul-15 20:48:24

You would take off in a gust of wind in those grin

What's more worrying is - how can this cost £65. £65????? shock

I was expecting to see the trousers fill with air or be flapping in a cross wind whilst the woman tried to avoid taking off like a kite in that video ..... very disappointed sad

I love them, I have had several variations on this theme over 45 years of buying my own clothes.
I don't know if I could wear them now as I have lost the ability to wear heels and am a bit short in the leg with flats.
Such a glamorous feeling, worn with a fitted top with biggish sleeves, or with a halter top.
Nostalgic for my glamorous self as I channel a teenage boy with attitude and problems after my day on the allotment!!

It's not that I don't like the look of them, I do, but in practical terms I'd break my neck tripping over the hem if I tried walking in them.

I think they got the waist wrong. It looks loose and droopy on the model. It looks like an elastic waist when a more structured band with zipper would give a neater less bulky silhouette.

It looks like they've put her in a pair 3 sizes too big!

chickenfuckingpox Sun 26-Jul-15 07:57:55

they look better tailored the elastic waist does nothing for you

i had a pair of culottes like this when i was younger they were really comfy

iamEarthymama Sun 26-Jul-15 08:04:11

You are right about a more tailored fit.
I had a gorgeous pair of grey trousers like this from Chelsea girl, I looked like Katherine Hepburn or Marlene Dietrich

Katherine Hepburn is my style icon. So absolutely awesome. The better of the Hepburns!

iamEarthymama Sun 26-Jul-15 08:11:08

In reality I probably looked like this!!

They look unusual now, but I've worn something like this several times over the years.

Agree that elasticated waist is naff though.

I wish I knew how to post a picture not the link.
