We're warm weather cruising at Easter and summer & long smart but cool trousers are needed (maybe with a coordinating waistcoat) but as DS gets older, I'm struggling to find any.

I used to buy from monsoon most years but they only go up to a 12 and their smart stuff is now polyester angry.

Marks have some cotton ones which look okay but not what I really have in mind, they're a bit rugged.

We got some lovely linen trousers from Next last summer but DS has grown out of them now & they don't have similar this year.

Please let me know if you see any!

Try French shops. Petit bateau, Jacadi, la redoute, cyrillus. Definitively vertbaudet, the most reasonnable of my list.

It is too early for them to be in stock, but j crew and brooks brothers carry them along with coordinating items (Blazers, sometimes waistcoats).

Marks usually have them - maybe in a week or two? They seem to have their formal jackets in, but not the trousers.

We've found the cruise lines not to be too fussy about kids' formal wear.

Thanks Cadbury, hopefully M&s will soon.

I know they are not that fussy I am though but I do think he should be in long trousers not shorts or jeans in the dining room & he doesn't have a single pair that fit (except school trousers which I wouldn't consider taking) so I do need to buy something and would prefer it was vaguely nice and lightweight.

It is not even formal wear I am looking for, it is every evening in the main dining room or speciality restaurants by the way. Shorts /jeans not allowed for gents.
