Blue Harbour Ultimate Performance Pure Linen Regular Fit Active Waistband Chinos
Very poor quality
Like others who have written reviews I bought a pair of these for my husband earlier in the summer. The fit was excellent and at first we were delighted with them. However, after just a few wearings several holes have appeared and they look extremely thin. What a great pity. I do hope Marks & Spencer will read all of these reviews and improve the quality of these trousers. We intend looking again when the Spring collection appears but will be very careful when selecting.

I bought a brown & a navy pair of these trousers for my husband and had to exchange the brown ones as the material split. The same happened with the navy at a later date, which I had a refund for & now it has happened with the replaced brown pair. This is not the quality that is expected from M&S & I feel tat standards have dropped over the past year. I will be returning the last pair of trousers for a refund.

I bought these trousers in navy and brown for my husband and like the other reviewers he suddenly felt a blast of cold air after a tear appeared in ther hip area of the navy pair! On closer inspection of the fabric, other small holes were appearing - the fabric was very thin and the trousers had only been worn several times and never washed. These have been retunred plus the brown pair which were never worn!

I bought a pair of these and really liked them initially - good fit, style, weight and colour. About a month later they began to fray at the inner thigh and, without warning, a massive tear opened up on the right leg while I was wearing them - potentially embarrassing but luckily I was at home. This was no ordinary rip; the material had fragmented into a spider's web effect, and a gentle tug at the left leg produced the same result. This seems like a problem with the actual material quality - 'lightweight' is not the same as 'inadequate'. Very disappointed with the product.
