I can't find any that are remotely affordable. Trying to find some plain, smart, cotton trousers in age 12-13 or so; Asda had some in twill which are great (we have some navy ones already) but they have just sold two of the pairs in my basket sad I thought I'd placed the order yesterday but clearly forgot to complete it.

Also not sure if they are 'formal' enough.

Does anyone know anywhere they have black, cotton trousers?

Matalan? That's where I got my son some shorts, they have a lot of uniform.

Thanks everyone. Looked at Next, couldn't find any cotton ones - the Gap ones are gorgeous but they haven't any in his size unfortunately.

Still looking everywhere - tried H&M, M&S, Sainsburys, Asda, Redoute, Tesco...looking at Debenhams now.

I will try Matalan!

Looked at Matalan, Debs, nothing sad

The gap ones look perfect but we haven't a store and they are all out of 12/13/14 size.

I could cry.

He doesn't fit the standard ones, at all - they cut right across him, he's not huge but he's straight up and down and sort of solid. If I get a comfy waist size they are 6 inches too long.
The generous fit ones allow for huge thighs and legs too which looks daft because he has slim legs.

Try contacting gap customer service?

My boy is younger and we can get away with cotton trackies.

Oh, what about h&m? Chino style things with flat fronts are pretty trendy now?

Maybe too jeansy though?

Ooh how come those are under the girls bit? They look really nice!

Thanks smile also have emailed Gap to ask about any stock they may have - and have meanwhile ordered some of the 80% cotton formal ones which may or may not be any good, but deffo worth a try.

Thanks again guys. Brill.

Lands End should stock them.
