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?

That's it? The best you have? The grand total of your contribution?

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.




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

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.

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.
