Hi. Anyone know where I can get grey school trousers without buttons or zips. M&S and BHS only do up to age 6. DS only five but needs age 7-8. Have tried some shorts with zips and buttons over the Summer but just gets frustrated. Any ideas? Thanks

I buy sturdy fit trousers from kids essentials on Ebay for my almost 10yr old son with dyspraxia, they have a zip and fly but are elasticated to accomodate a larger waist size,he is then able to pull them up and down rather than use the fly, he is happy with this as still struggles with normal trousers.

I used to buy these for ds. They go up to age 12 and used to wear well.

I'm looking for some too, but for my DD aged 8.

I was really pleased to have found them for DS and there are cheap (also good for DS potty training)

There're a fair few MNSN Mums who buy from me - I make them to order, so bespoke to the measurements you give me. PM if interested (I don't charge the earth!)

Sainsburys do them too, have up to aged 11, bought some aged 9, elastic waist is good enough to just be able to pull them up and down, irrespective of flies or buttons.
