Any idea where to find skinny jeans for boys??

Ds is 7 (how the hell did that happen?), very tall, wearing 9-10 year old trousers for length but he is sooooo very skinny that he'd look fab in some skinny jeans. Anything bigger than straight leg look ridiculous on him.
But can I find some? Can I HELL!!
I've tried looking for girls ones to suit but they all have prints or embellishments on them.

Please help me make my son more of a rock/emo child so it irritates my mother wink

H&M or Gap had some a few weeks back but think they went in the sale.

Boden also had some slim fitting ones in the sale.

H and M ones are stylish but cotton poor.

the next dark rinse ones ( currently out of stock ) are the nicest

Zara are another place to look, good leg length and worth a look if the sale has started.

Both my boys are slim, the GAP jeans are the best but get the girls skinny ones (just don't tell him). You can't tell they are for girls, it is what the shop staff recommended and they are excellent

My ds got some pretty skinny ones in Next - he's thin and looks fab in them.

H&M are really nice, but close with a popper that loses its staying-closed strength after a while. I put on the elastic snake belts from Boden to keep it all together. Apart from that mine have all gone through 3 reckless ds's with no problem.

you need to get GAP slim fit skinny jeans they are 1-2" narrower around the waist.

ds2 is so skinny he almost disappears if he turns sideways but is also very tall - I thought he'd just look too Max Wall-ish in proper skinny jeans but most cuts drown him in flapping material

I ended up getting him some straight leg slim fit jeans in Gap - he's 9 but got him the 10-11 and did the adjustable waist up to the tightest fit and hey presto, jeans that fit him well they did until his legs grew longer and now they're ankle skimmers so we need to get some more grin

mimsum I spend my life looking for 2nd hand slim fits for dd2 & 4 yes even then they still need the elastic in them!

Simples Thu 09-Jul-09 19:19:37

gap ones too wide here

Hetijay Thu 16-Jul-09 14:51:31

Can you get H & M on-line? I need to get skinny jeans for my son asap. Ankle skimmers on the go at the moment and a party at the weekend!!!

no online h&M

gap slim fit jeans are as rare as rocking horse shit

jeans are a nightmare to find for skinny boys

H&M have some great stuff at the moment for older boys. Bought one son green skinny jeans from there yesterday! They had other colours too. And some really cool star wars t shirts. Well worth making a trek to your nearest one if it's not miles and miles. Nice to see some non-blue/khaki/brown/grey without going to the other extreme of boden clown colours. Lots of v cheap things in sale too.
