ELLIOT ANKLE GRAZER TROUSER
Smart trousers for work
The photo on the website doesn't really show the colour very well which is burgundy with a tiny black houndstooth check. However they are comfortable and flattering, smart enough for work and would go with a white shirt or black polo neck. As the length is just above the ankle I've been wearing mine with flats.

Saggy after one wear
As with previous reviews, I boght these trousers in the sale. They are described as dark red however I'd describe as deep burgundy (a bit pedantic as that is a shade of red I know!). The material is a good weight and as with WS I opted for a size 12 as my usual 14 are too big. Plus having a 29" inside leg they fit to just below ankle length.
They fit well however after 1 wear, during a work day, they do sag at knees and derriere! I love that they match up with lots of colours.
A little niggle is the hem wasnt well finished amd I've had to "wonder web" them up!

Not a great trouser overall
I was looking for a pair of work trousers and although these are smart enough at a first glance, there are several reasons why they don't make the grade. The material whilst heavy enough for this time of year, does not hold its shape we'll and so once worn does not look as smart as I would hope. The fabric feels a bit flimsy and I think the trousers would benefit from lining. I bought my usual size and the length of trouser and fit around the legs and bottom is fine but the waist is a bit too big. This added to a fabric that stretches easily means on the second wearing I needed a belt. This could jus be my shape but I feel that with a better quality fabric this would not have happened. I kept them as I bought them in the sale, but would not have paid full price.
