Jeans for a lad with hand impairment

Does anyone know where I might get jeans with an elasticated waist that aren't those lycra legging-ish things.
For a 14 year old disabled lad who can't do his own button and zip but is now refusing assistance (thinks his crown jewels are too precious)! Argh!

Is there anyway a regular pair can be modified with some elastic? Does the OT have any ideas?

Not sure sorry. I reckon that would most likely be a hard style to find. Perhaps find a seamstress and have a word. Maybe a regular pair of jeans could be altered to fit as you require. Hope you get something sorted.

whay about taking the button off and puting velcro in its place?

Boden do elasticated/drawstring waists and also pantts with velcro rather than a button..

You can buy a "thingy" that does the button and zip, it is like a hook thing so that you can do them with one hand.

Betterware do them, I got one for my gran when she broke her shoulder. It wqas about a fiver iirc.
I think JML might do them as well.
