H&M joggers, £29.99

I try very hard not to buy things from H&M. It’s too easy, they fall to bits when washed and smell. They’re not special. It’s also all a bit of a moral moot point. NOBODY SAY SWEATSHOP!

But they do, so often, just do things so well.

For example, these new season joggers, which are a step on from the old tapered-leg “tailored” joggers, which didn’t really suit me. They are a homage of sorts to the Adidas Firebird tracksuit trousers, which are impossible to get hold of at the moment. Plus I think wearing actual Adidas branded stuff is too much. It’s for the kids, not for us.

Adidas Firebirds: a step too far

But these trousers are excellent. Nice slippy flippy material, good length – very odd to be wearing trousers again that go all the way down to the floor – amusing racy red stripe down the side.

If the weather ever evens out I will be wearing these with a white shirt and some Arizona Birkenstocks. When it gets colder, with a grey or navy crew neck sweater.

Wearing them with a t-shirt and a pair of Stan Smiths gives entirely the wrong message.  Just, you know, in case you were considering doing that.

Sizing: I am 5’6″ and a 10-12 and a size 10 fits me. If anything a teensy little bit snug at the waistband, but that’s being a fat old mum of 2 for you…
