I wear these sort of things. Hideous but warm. Cuffed hem are good because the wind doesn't blow up your pant leg, plus they don't drag on the ground and get wet in the winter. And they're easy to just pull off in the gym (and raise a few eyebrows when people initially don't realise you've got your gym shorts on underneath ). You can get cheaper versions in store if you're on a budget, I'm pretty sure I paid about £10 for my Lonsdsle ones.
Gap has a few things like this, also H&M, and look in supermarket clothes ranges like Sainsbury's and Asda. Basic jogging bottoms with a slim leg and cuff are what you'll usually find at the moment. For more expensive/quality ones, Jack Wills or Superdry, or even more expensive, Sweaty Betty.
I find all these shops easier to go in than proper "sports" shops. Why are they so intimidating?
I can't buy into the dress them up or down, go anywhere thing but as pull ons for after the gym they're are wonderfully soft and so flattering. Exceptionally comfortable, even in the world of comfy trousers.
Should have said they keep their shape and don't sag at the knees and bump like most jersey trousers. Expensive but mine must be 4 years old now and worn practically daily, still in good shape with no bobbling etc.
Uniqlo do great wide leg tracksuit bottoms in lots of colours. Their grey and black ones are great for wearing over the top of sports stuff, and they are a flattering shape And they are dirt cheap - about £9 a pair. I've got about 5 pairs!
This is what I'm looking for too. Last year i had some track suit bottoms, they had no ankle cuff though and they'd get wet along the bottom in the gym car park. I was thinking of the style StephenKatz linked to earlier. I'm going to brave Sports Direct, it's an awful shop but cheap !
