Great jeans! You are not the only one to have cut your bengaline the wrong way! My pants fit but they just kept getting longer and longer!!

Thanks guys!! Akino - I'm running London marathon in precisely 5 weeks' time. :) It'll be my 3rd marathon but I've been training like crazy to get a really good time on home turf!

The pants look really good on you. The details look very neat. When are running the marathon, and where? I did one too. With my husband. Was one of the best experiences in my life.

You did a good job persevering on the pattern

I like the front pocket detail. I have come to think that skinnier clothes make one look thinner than roomier clothes, counter intuitive for me. I enjoyed your marathon video. Good luck there.
