A&F jeans

A&F are the only place I have found that do a 24" waist for up to 157cm height.

But they are £48 so more than I would like to spend on a rapidly growing child's clothes.

Does anyone know if anywhere else does those measurements combo?

What inseam are you looking for? girl or boy?

Uniqlo does long, narrow clothes. Eg their 11yo size in girls' colour skinny fit jeans lists a 22- 24 in waist, with a 29in inseam, or the 12yo has a 31in inseam (no waist measurement given). Since 157cm is 5'2" I imagine this is long enough....?

Depending on the age I'd look at their adult department too. If you're looking for a girl, the jeans are cut very straight.

Oops sorry helps if I specify.

It's a boy with absolutely no bum (or anything else) and ends up with a lot of excess material around the bottom.

What's inseam? Is that the cut?

I was looking at style super skinny as thinking that will have less material.

Ah just realised inseam is inside leg measurement! I'll check.

31" inseam

Yeah so the age 12 in Uniqlo is going to be long enough for you, they don't give the waist size in the fit guide, but 11yo is 22-24in waist (must depend on style), 29 inseam. So the 12yo 31 inseam must be 23/24/25 in waist, thereabouts.

Worth a try. I'd be tempted to try the girls' skinny fit and just not tell him! they're all pretty plain.

Anyway uniqlo is in general well priced and good quality.

Think there are only shops in London, but you can buy most stuff online.
