Where can I get jeans for a skinny teenage boy?

Just returned to live in this country so am clueless as to where I can get clothes for a teenage boy. He's a lanky 13 yr old, needs a 28 waist but is already about 5'7" tall. Too big for boys clothes, too skinny for menswear. Help!!

H&M or BHS

Try Primark's men section - their chinos and skinny jeans fit my DS well.

Next online have a section for teenage boys - I would advise ordering a selection in various sizes as returning these to the nearest store is free and easy.

Gap Slim range or Next mens (think waist starts at 30 but they do the 28in waisted 5'9 boy in this house).

My two skinny teenage boys get jeans from topman, h&m and river island - they do 28 inch waists and even sometimes find a 26 - good luck!

Deffo primark! Even my Ds who is 28" waist and 34" leg can find them in there!

Thanks all - since he hates shopping with a passion, of course, I will try ordering a selection from Next online and see if I can avoid dragging him around the shops.

Much appreciated.

Next do a 28" in some of their mens trousers.

But Primark ones are just as good quality but cheaper smile

I second Gap and Primark - both mine need 28x34, and they're not easy to find!

My 16 year old is 27/28 - 33 and I find Primark and Top Man by far the best.

Top man have over 120 styles of jeans online.
26" waist & 28" waist and bigger.
Short leg is 30"
Regular leg is 32"
