Can any body suggest where I go for clothes for my 12 year old DS? He is a big lad.....not hugely overweight but has quite a big tummy and thighs. He has been wearing shorts all Summer bless him ...elasticated waist/saggy baggy ones. Apart from his school trousers he now has NO trousers that fit. He absolutely hates jeans and has always worn part elasticated kids trousers. We have started going to the gym to help with the weight issue but he still needs trousers! Men's trousers are too long and don't have any elastic obviously! Any suggestions for best shops/websites for him? I don't mind taking trousers up...I can sew just enough to do that ! Oh...and just to add an extra dimension I have a limited budget!!! Thank you so much.
I've found that it's near impossible to pick up clothes in the shops, but there are still online options. We've bought DS's clothes from Next and M&S mostly. Luckily, he's now 14 and can fit in some men's XS.
I’ve spent a long tine hemming my ds trousers after having to buy to fit round the waist. Hasn’t improved since he’s got older as he still had short legs -I’ve just got better at hemming! He hasn’t fitted into eg M&S School trousers since year 6/8. But fortunately he prefers shorts
My son loves the regatta trousers we got him for scouts, he was the size between the kids stock in Go Outdoors and the adults, but I got some on Amazon. They have zip off bits to turn into shorts and I think the colour was called ash.
Thanks so much for these answers....I am particularly intrigued by the Next plus fit.....we don't go to many places requiring "proper" trousers so tracky bums are fine most of the time! Have a great day all.
