I got all excited when I saw this then saw your ds is 16!
Will keep looking.

what's a bugger is that my son is actually only 12 just very very tall so needs an age 16!!!

I think his age will make it tough... Have you considered adult coats? There's this or this but obv they are quite ££ compared to to the next kids one.

If he's 16, could he wear small men's clothes? It may give you more places to look? There's a nice one on gap but the boys size stops at 13.

Oh no! How frustrating. Will have another think.

i have got him small men's stuff for some things but mens coats tend to be too wide across the shoulders and too 'adult' iyswim

Ooh what about this in black ?

H&m are small for menswear. I'm sure the S would be a good fit?

old bag-sorry-he is not actually 16-he#s only 12
just very tall

not got man sized shoulders or anything yet so a little harder

You might be better off buying on line, h&m are a nightmare for not having stuff instore!

crazybutterflylady Fri 19-Oct-12 17:32:52

Ooh that vertbaudet one looks good!

fuckadoodlepoopoo Fri 19-Oct-12 17:34:24

Have you tried ebay?

gymboywalton Fri 19-Oct-12 17:39:31

the verbaudet one looks good yes-biggest size is 174cm and have just measured him and he is now 175cmshock

will check out h and m i think

crazybutterflylady Fri 19-Oct-12 17:47:16

Vertbaudet sizing is odd too, it's 'up to' that size. So for my DD who is 17mo I have to buy age 2 or sometimes even age 3!

gymboywalton Fri 19-Oct-12 17:49:10

yes i remember that from when he was little!
