    I'm on a budget and in need of new jeans to fit my (slightly) slimmer legs and waist.

    I'm pretty sure I'm down to a 42 as my current pair (falling off me lol) are a 44, and I found some in the house yesterday that are a 40 but they are still too small... for some reason the ones I used to wear when I was a 42 before have fallen into a black hole. :cry:

    So, I need some cheap jeans to tie me over until I dip down another size... the obvious place would be George at Asda but they never seem to have any 42s, and despite all the hoorays about George having a bigger size section, it seems to be women only (even on t'internet).

    Does anyone know any reasonably priced places to find 42s?

    I know that Asda and Tesco both go up to a size 44 in their jeans and they are only £6 a pair

    I was in Asda today with the missus doing our weekly shop, and decided to try on some 40s... glad I did because they fit!

    :party0019:

    This comes as a nice little surprise for me :) and I guess the ones I had in storage must have shrunk.

    Thanks for the suggestions though, I shall go clothes crazy soon when the budget allows :D

    That's great! Always good when smaller ones fit

    Thanks Taz :)

    It feels good to not be so limited now with my clothes choices.

    Ebay is always great and most of the stuff is new (people have forgotten to take it back to the store in time, or have just never worn them)
