My 5'9" very skinny 15.6yo needs a lightweight summer jacket with a zip pocket for all his belongings.

I've looked in a couple of mens shops/ departmemts/sports shops but only found fleece or sweaty nylon.

Anyone seen anything in their travels? A cotton or cotton mix or a very light fleece or jersey but must have a zipped pocket.

TIA thanks

Saw a lovely one in Reiss window yesterday, and though that my 16 yo would love it. But their prices are a bit shock

Just looked at their website - some nice jackets to choose from if you're feeling generous.

Try River Island or Topman. Both are sized for skinnies and have a good deal of choice in styles.

Thanks - I like the 'Cannes' style on the Reiss site.

Might venture into Topman but I think I might get "Jacket? Jacket? It's , erm, 32 degrees out there" from the salesperson.

(I looked in H&M, Blue Inc, Primark, Tesco - nada )

I know the problem well. My DS is 5'11", not 8 stone yet!
just got him a thin quilted style jacket ,new,off ebay. It's made by Twisted Soul and is a mans small size. Fits lovely. was about £14 I think.

They'll have allsorts and fab prices for the branded stuff too. Got ds (16) a lightweight Firetrap jacket for £24.99 last week (and some trendy cuffed Converse hightops for £17.99!)
