As Winter approaches I am looking for some long sports pants to wear when I am at the squash court when I am not playing. I would prefer Nylon type material, but perhaps something lightly lined. Slazenger made some like this many years ago but I have yet to see anything comparable. The big thing is that I want 
elastic ankles and this is the part of the equation I can't seem to complete. My Google-Fu seems to have abandoned me as I can't find anything online in NZ. I was curious if anyone had recently acquired something similar and could tell me where?

You're just lucky he didn't start up a rant about Samsung track pants.

I used to find that the elastic did not form a good-enough seal. They worked better if your wore them with bicycle ankle-clips. Or a large jubilee clip for a proper job.

Farmers - they sometimes have some leftovers from 1985.




But seriously, I have come across the lightweight track pants that look like a normal straight leg on the outside but have a hidden elastic cuff inside. I am pretty sure they were in Farmers or the Lotto shop (soccer not the gambling).

Try Bing Harris.... (they do have track pants; even in lookalike denim). Not sure about the ankles.

Otherwise Wal-mart

Do you think you could use leg warmers over a loose-bottomed leisure suit pant to get the effect?

If you can't find them with elastic then the Adidas ones with a stirrup are always an option....

I could've mentioned a delorean, flux capacitor and something about 141.622k/ph.
But then I thought you might think I was taking the pith.

Isn't this just a pair of canterbury pants? Nylon / Lined / Elasticated cuffs..

I like the Active (Activewear ?)  stuff the Warehouse gets, nice and light - add a bit of elastic yourself :) Would take 5mins to sew a bit in.
