have just tried on m&s school trousers on my sons, i always buy the m&s ones, this year they have either change the style or i've got the wrong ones, they are so baggy and wide in the leg, just about to try and wash and shrink them in the drier i've already removed the labels as i should be an expert at buying school trousers after all these years but i have a feeling i'm going to have to do a mad dash to the shops, any suggestions for trousers for skinny boys? i need charcoal grey in 9yr and 5yrs.

Next do "Slim fit" school trousers.

Sainsburys usually come up narrow.

Bother, M&S usually do for us. I also suggest Next.

I bought mine from asda, I think they're a slimish fit with an adjustable waist .

I always buy ds's (tall and skinny with no bum) from Asda. They are quite slim fit and have an adjustable waist. they last reasonably well least until he grows out of them.

Try M&S extra long leg in a size smaller - this works for my skinny boy - fits on the waist without too much bunching plus correct leg length. I think I got mine online.

M and s have a new 'modern' fit school trouser that have nice slim legs. Adjustable waist too

I bought DS trousers from M&S (have done for many years) I've tried Adams, Sainsbo, Asda . The M&S ones seem to cope with him.

Agree with buy a size smaller but extra length (I always sew/write over the age label otherwise I get an indignant DS scowling -I'm 11 nearly 12 not 10. Sigh)

Had to buy black this year so went for stormwear/Teflon with a single pleat, and the all important zip pocket.

thanks, went to asda £3 a pair for the younger boys, my nearly 5 yrs old fits into the age 3-4 years, they have the much needed adjustable waist and the length is very generous, hes tall and thin for his age so amazed the smaller size fits. Just hope they wash well.

wash at 40 deg, they are fine

do you tumble dry them? i have so much washing it all has to be tumble dried.

I don't possess a tumble drier but I bet they would be ok.
