Thanks to mn my skinny ds has school trousers that fit him and doesn't have to go to school looking like he's wearing clown trousers (M&S longer length in 2 years younger than his age, if you are interested).

Anyway, I bought him a pair of jeans today that actually fit shock and thought I'd share: H&M slim fit, £5.99!

Hi DieWilde how old is your DS?

I'm lucky grin enough to have a stick insect DS who is 13 yo.

School trousers- yes M&S with the adjustable waist in the extra long. with the zipped back pocket.

Trousers- he's too tall for Primark boys (and the 12-13yo are far too big on his waist)
I bought him youths/mens 26" waist 32" leg.
OK he needs a belt.
But they fit him nicely and are IIRC £10.

I've looked in H&M but never found anything he liked.
Might be worth another look.

Another super slim DS here. He has several pairs of the H& M skinny jeans. Also Gap skinny jeans but they were canvas/cotton rather than denim. DS has a grey pair and mustard. Look fab and fit beautifully.

70, he is nearly 9 and the trousers are a size 134 / 8-9 years. They are quite long.

They are from the bigger boys' section - age 8 to 15 or so?

I always find skinnies to be fine in the leg, but massive around the non-existant waist and bottom.

Are they slim fit normal jeans or actually skinny jeans? My ds is skinny and tall and likes skinny jeans!

Next Directory do school trousers in a 'slim' fit in addition to their standard fit. My son has been wearing these for years - they are fab.

They are slim fit normal jeans, but if I remember correctly they have slim fit skinnies as well.
