AgentProvocateur Wed 24-Apr-13 18:28:10 might like to know that Primark now do their trousers and jeans in a 26 waist, 34 leg.

I bought various pairs for both DC today. It's rare that I find anything long enough that also fits at the waist.

I have one of those. He was 6' tall at 13. He's now 17 and seems to have passed the eating for England stage, consequently he's getting skinnier. He's 6'2" and 10.5 stone.
When the sun came out last week he raked some shorts out. They fell down when fully fastened up.hmm

Ds1 has his own sense of style, which puts him more in proportion. He always wear high tops and low slung trousers, with a belt, so lots of horizontal lines. And quite often a striped t-shirt.

If he didn't wear a belt he would be indecentblush

He went through 4 years of not wearing shorts, but has now got over thatgrin
