Okay have looked in surfy shops i have in my town, whichi will total. 2! lol. And there are some nice animal ones but didnt really want to spend 45 quid on them...well i would but cant really afford to at the moment.

Have looked on on ebay but one thign or another the ones i have come across werent right.

looked in millets/blacks etc in town and the only trousers they seemed to have where lightweight tracksuit styley ones which i dont want.

Have tried searching the internet but am runnig out of days to recieve them (as leave next wednesday)

basically am after combat styley trousers, not camoflage but that style. I used to own a few pairs years ago but that store in my town closed down.

I don't like the thin tracksuit style ones,

Any good websites/stores i can check out?

ideally websites in U

also forgot to say , i'm not just after names like animal or quicksilver any will do as long as they are what i'm after :D

Do you mean cargo pants? They're everywhere once you get to the states.

Or try the men's section at H&M - that seems to be one of their themes this season.

PRIMARK!!!!!!!!!!

I got a pair for a tenner. They're so light and comfy.

And I'm with Omi on H&M. I got a men's pair of cropped combats for £15.

You really should. It'd be worth it for Primark alone!

Oh no, I forgot to tell you about my BARGAIN find!!!!

There's a website La Redoute, it's like an online catalogue shop. And I ordered a bikini on there, cos the shops aren't really selling them any more.

Anyway! I ordered a top and bottoms, like mix and match sort of thing, and it should have been £12.40 plus £3.45 p&p. Anyway, I searched google to see if I could find a discount code to get free p&p or something (naughty, I know, but never mind!). WELL! I found a code that got £10 off, plus free p&p with NO MINIMUM SPEND!! So I got my bikini for £2.40, haha!

I was so impressed!

haha well done, high 5 to that one! Another prob I found with looking for combats was that it came up with alot of womens (and mens?!) 3/4 length and stlyish ones, which if you new me you would know that I would rather take jeans haha. I am the least feminine and fashionabley stlyish person ever haha..So good ol boys clothes comes up trumps :D
