M&S Collection Slim Leg Trousers
I have difficulty in finding trousers that fit nicely at the waist, These were perfect for me. The quality is good. They wash well.

Shame about the zipped pocket!
Ordered these online, they arrived very promptly and when I tried them on they fitted really well and felt good. The waist was in the right place (which I prefer on a cold winter's day!). Unfortunately, when I looked in the mirror I looked as if I had "jodphur thighs". I think this is because of the zipped pocket, as the sides seem to balloon out just below the pocket. They are so nice otherwise, so I am not sure whether to keep them and try to adjust them or just send them back.

Ignore reviews at your peril!
I wish I'd taken more notice of the many references to the 'jodphur effect' but I guess I was bewildered by the huge selection of black trousers on offer in the store. I wanted an autumn weight which didn't have to be dry cleaned and believed the label which said 'slim leg'. In the fitting room I was pleased that the waist fitted neatly and really did sit 'on the waist' (which so many don't) — had to have long though since my usual medium didn't come anywhere near my shoes. It was only on the first wearing, with the label removed, that I noticed that the so-called slim legs were far from it and ballooned unflatteringly over the thigh area. The fabric's quite thin too and even now (mid September) I've had to wear tights under them; something I never, ever do and this caused considerable static which affected the hang. So take a good look at yourself from all angles before the labels come off — I wish I had!
