When did your teenage DS start to wear mens sizedesigner clothing?
I had a quick look around our local Matalan tonight for some clothes for my DS. He's about 4ft 11in tall but everything looked small in the chest for him. They also use age rather than height and chest/waist/hip measurements which I don't find helpful. It set me wondering how much longer I will be able to dress him in boys clothing. He's just about to turn 12.
Luckily I don't have to buy mens shoes for him yet as he's only a size 5 and I think that the largest boys shoe size is a 6. I think Toasty Junior is just about to embark on another growing spurt, evidenced by the rapid rate at which our cupboards and fridge are emptied.
DS was 12, going into xs tshirts at just turned 12. He was 13 a few weeks ago and now takes an M shirt (or 14 1/2 collar). He wears xs shirts etc and 28x28 jeans in Boohoo men. However, he’s about 5’9”, with very broad shoulders. He can’t get much less than an age 16 school shirt round his shoulders.
DS has just turned 13, he’s 5’3 tall and is now starting to wear XS men’s clothes. He could probably wear age appropriate teenage stuff but not many places do it and he tends to gravitate to the men’s section where he has more choice. H&M is his favourite. His feet are a size 8 so definitely mens shoes.
