Sub £30 trail shorts

My current baggy shorts have shrunk in the wash considerably over Christmas and I need some new ones.
Need to be cheap (Sub £30), tough enough to laugh in the face of brambles (within reason) and not too long, stop above the knee as I have big quads.

Riding is mostly in good weather and commuting, just occasional wet/fithly. Don't want anything 10000% waterproof or with a click in liner, just want some basic sho

I've currently got some Madison ones, quite old and I think they were just called "trail shorts" but they've done me well.
Something like the Madison freewheel shorts, but I think that's discontinued.

Any suggestions?

    I managed to pick some sub £30 Altura baggies from go outdoors off the sale rail and it was still a gamble as you cant try them on.
    Sub £30 is a tough ask. Perhaps accepting they'll forever be shrunk and you will never wear them again will allow you to increase the budget.
    My endura shorts shrunk in my cupboard so i do feel your pain.
