Help me find black wide legged trousers

So, I'd like to get some black wide legged trousers but I have a very specific idea in my head of what I want and haven't been able to find them.

I had a pair about 25 years ago (when I was a size 8) from Ted Baker and I loved them. They were kind of stiffer, IYKWIM. A lot of the ones I've found are either jersey material or quite light and floaty.

I will be wearing with flat boots or trainers. I'm a size 12. Budget less than £100.

The closest I've managed to find are these blue ones from Seasalt but they don't have them in black.

Surely, if anyone can help me, Mumsnet can!

I'd second M&S. I have the same pair in three different colours. They're nice heavy fabric.

M&S!

Tried that. Only two pairs of black wide legged trousers - one too short and the other the wrong material

Thirding M&S - they have tons of black wide legs on their website, definitely more than 2 styles, look: www.marksandspencer.com/l/women/trousers/fs5/wide-leg/black?originalPrice=5%2C150

(Those Finery London ones look nice, if they're in budget.)

I'm on the cheaper end of the scale and these are the ones I have - had about 3 pairs now, they're ridiculously flattering. www.marksandspencer.com/wide-leg-trousers/p/clp60506507?color=BLACK

Hobbs? I was going to suggest Hobbs Pippa trousers but looks like they are sold out. But Hobbs generally are good for wideleg trousers.

M&S - I have these ones and they're great
They also do 5 different lengths (extra short, short, regular, long, extra long)

Thanks everyone. I've looked at all your suggestions and nothing that is what I'm looking for. All the material looks too flowy or soft, if you know what I mean. Maybe they don't exist. If I hadn't seen those Seasalt ones, I would think I was making them up!

Have you tried H&M?

I think that you will have to try searching using the names of some heavy weight fabrics -so balck ladies wide leg gaberdine/twill/canvas trousers and see what comes up - on the high street the best bet is probably somewhere like TOAST but they will be more than £100.

It's worth going to a bigger M&S so you can see them in person. The ones I have are a mid/heavy weight fabric, so definitely sound like they'd be what you're describing

Have a look at these Whistles trousers:
www.whistles.com/product/185419.html

i ordered them but returned because I found them too stiff. Otherwise, good quality and nice cut. You're saying stiff's what you're after so they may be perfect for you.

How about the Community Clothing "work" trousers?

Hobbs did a style like this last summer, Samina, not black but very dark navy, they were brilliant.

I really like those! The photos look almost like linen though- did they look like they would crease easily?

I don't think they would crease as much as linen, because they are heavy weight cotton, very much like suit trousers. But yes, I'm sure there would be some creasing.

I have seen some good ones at Massimo Dutti too.

M & S have some in just now that are made with quite a weighty fabric that is definitely not jersey. I quite fancy a pair for myself!

I have the M&S ones above, definitely neither jersey or floaty!
