Boys' Pleat Front Trousers with Supercrease™ & Stormwear™
I have been buying these trousers for years and they have always fitted really well and looked so smart. This year around the hip and tops of the thighs the trousers are extremely baggy and look awful! I also agree with the comments from another lady about the 11 - 12, 12-13 sizing. For the first time these have been returned and I am going to try the slim fit, although the slim fit is only offered in grey not charcoal and I really prefer the darker colour. Disappointed, felt uniform was always easy to buy from M & S, but not this year!!

Guess the size?
I bought the only pair of these in size 13 yrs navy in my local store and had to order more online. The sizes instore were absolute age sizes eg 11, 12, 13. The sizes online were in ranges of 2 years eg 11-12; 12-13; 13-14. The size guide didn't help, as it confirmed that the size 13 yrs pair that I had bought were for 158cm height and 71cm waist. So, when I need more pairs of 13yrs, do I go for 12-13 or 13-14??? Obviuous answer (given that stocks of navy school uniform sell out quickly) is to buy BOTH and make a trip to my nearest store to return the ones I don't need.
Come on M&S - if you make clothes in exact age sizes, please ensure that your website reflects this.

Great school trousers - I wouldn't buy any other
I love these school trousers! They repel water, are hard wearing, easy to pull up and down and they look lovely and smart even without ironing. A decent style; leg width not skinny nor baggy and hang well. My 4 year old has really put them to the test and by the end of this term they still look brand new. Despite many falls, there's no scuff marks on the trousers! They are longer in length than trousers in the same size from some other stores, so you may want to try 2 different sizes. I hope M&S continue to produce this line for many years as I plan to purchase each size as my boy grows.

Bargain school trousers
The trousers are the best we have purchased for school, and we get through many pairs! Excellent value for money and good quality. The fit is perfect for my teenage son and although he would like them slightly straighter in the leg, he too is pleased with them. Ordering in store, used malvern branch, was simple with plenty of help/advice offered from the staff and they arrived next day. Perfect!!!
