I have no idea why lots of mum complain about these trousers.
Since my three boys started school I only buy wool rich trousers for them from M&S.
My sons spend a lot of time in school, therefore their clothes and shoes must be as good quality and made of natural fabrics/materials, even if it is difficult to afford to buy. Polyester fabric made of oil, viscose made of wood, wool is wool. It protects my boys skin when it is really chilly and keeps them cool in warm days.
I was really happy once discovered M&S this years started to sell its trousers with 60% wool as the previous 2-3 years percentage of natural wool in sold trousers was really low.
Would like to add, these trousers do not lose their smart look unlike to synthetic made trousers, and despite slightly higher price, they are worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alexandersnanny Good Fabric, Slightly Baggy cut!
Bought six pairs of these trousers for my teenage Grandson. I guess because he normally wears 'skinny jeans' as he is really tall and slim, these school trousers appear to have far too much fabric around the hip area.
Thank goodness for the adjustable waist or I think they would fall down otherwise!
Needed the age 15-16yrs size to gain the correct leg length but Grandson is only 13yrs.
Will keep an eye out for a slimmer cut version but the ones I have already purchased will be OK for a while.
Nice fabric, comfortable deep waistband.

My 15 year old son says these are the best fit school trousers he has ever had! We always but M& S trousers but best ones by far!

The material was a let down (doesn't feel "Rich Wool") more like cotton! and the length of the trousers came up a bit short, even though my son is 6.2". I think for £18.00 the quality of the material and style (i.e. back pocket) was a bit of a let down and I don't think value for money. I know I can get better trousers for much less elsewhere!

I have twin boys who are very tall and slim for their age so last year I bought 8 pairs of 13-14 years and this year I bought 8 pairs of 14-15 years (they're 13 and in S2). M&S dark grey Primary school trousers are quality and when my boys started high school last year I wanted the same standard of trousers. These wool rich adjustable trousers are the best M&S have to offer in the school uniform range before paying a lot more for adult trousers!!! These trousers do tend to bobble after about 30 washes (shave with a disposable razor to take the bobbles away) but this year I plan to wash them inside out! When my boys grew taller around Easter time I had to let their trouser hems down and was delighted to find that the trousers have a second hem underneath - thank you M&S for this! My boys both have sensitive skin and as long as I wash their clothes first they've no complaints about itching.
