Next Harems pants - previous seasons. Would like similar.
Next don't seem to be doing the harems this year. I have 2 pairs I bought about 2 years ago and they are starting to look worn so I'd like to replace. I've looked at Hush and Baukjen but they are too expensive. Does anyone know where i could get jersey harems (the ones I have are 96% viscose 4% elastane) for a reasonable price and that deliver to Ireland? I'd prefer ones without a cuff at the ankle and don't like the dropped crotch style.
The joggers aren’t the same. I’ve got a black floral and a navy pair and while they’ll do they are a different fabric, a different cut and have annoying tassels at the front that hit you in the crotch when you walk.
Matalan have loads on their website but I’d need to go and look at them before I bought them.
I bought the Next 'joggers' sadly not the same as the harems. Wider in the leg and longer I think, annoying tie thing at waist. I thought I'd got a rogue pair but then realised what they were (thought they were the harems in the shop) and sadly removed label and worn them. Fine for round the house but I wouldn't wear them as I usually did on a plane
I think the Matalan look like the closest to the Next ones but I'm having issues with delivery to Ireland. I was in Penneys (Primark) today and invested the huge amount of €6 on their version but they are definitely to be worn around the house only. I think it's the polyester that's the problem. The Matalan ones are viscose like the Next ones. If anyone gets a chance to try the Matalan ones can they let us know?
I ordered two pairs of the joggers, they came today. They're not quite the same as the waistband isn't as think and has a toggle so doesn't fit as well underneath a vest too. Apart from that I find the fit and cut really similar. Will see how they wash!
