They collect dust better than a lint roller.

I considered taking them back, but thought this is the risk of buying fast fashion.

Ah, that's a deal breaker. Cheers

Forgot about that . You're right, though exaggerating a bit. Isn't that intrinsic to stretch jeans?

Same, proper shit. Never worn for that reason.

The fit is very good though. Wouldn't mind more trousers like that. High rise is a bit of a rarity nowadays.


Also those cotton stretch 'jeans' they do are worth a punt. They make for a decent alternative for cotton chinos that don't crease nearly as fast.

Might try a pair of those in dark blue.

These seem decent and don't look like dust catchers:

?

Hoolio was a member on here who used to wear big ol' bootcuts. By hem I meant the opening at the ankle not the inseam - do the arkets taper down to a slim cuff?

Oh, right. My bad.

They do taper, but are slim throughout the whole leg. Hem isn't overly big.

They've got 3 for 2 on the tees again. Last year the subscriber discount stacked so worth a try.
