Black trousers smart/casual cotton/twill chino-ish do they exist

So I'd really like to find some slim fitting perhaps cropped or full length black trousers - sort of like chinos, or like slim cotton or twill trousers. I used to have some by GAP but I have had a look online and can't make much sense of what is available or my sizing (regular size 10)
Fabric or leg width everywhere seems to be completely off. I'd just like to be able to throw them on for various things instead of jeans/skirt. I've seen some in shops but only in blue.
Black trousers - where are you?

Uniqlo is my mainstay for work trousers - stock is a little limited right now but might be worth a look..

I have not tried there! OK thanks - yes something for days that are both work appropriate in spring etc and can be worn generally would be ideal.

I got a nice pair of black chinos in French Connection. They were £70 but well worth the money as I wear them loads.

Are the Cos ones too smart? | filter Here

Mostly cotton is hopeful, thanks - had some Cos ones once that were a really strange fabric!
Emma are the French Connection ones at all shiny? I think I've seen them online but couldn't tell what the fabric was like..
may have fabric related issues
Thanks all! I had burnt out from trying to find any

No not at all shiny and the turn ups can be rolled down if you want a longer length.

Try Zara and Mango.

My most flattering ones were from a huge branch of M&S in Leeds. I literally tried on every style in black in the shop before I settled on one.

Boden Richmond trousers?

I got some in Benetton recently.

I've got the Gap Slim
Crop (slightly odd sizing - I'm a UK6/Us2 in there - but an 8-10 in real life!).

The Boden Richmond Crops are amazing. I've not tried the trouser version, but the cut and the fabric of the crops are brilliant.
