Hi all! I’ve not posted on here for years although I am a frequent viewer of information! 😃

My issue.... my son is now 12 and I am at a complete loss as to where to get him jeans that aren’t skinny fit! He’s not a fat lad, he’s just rather muscly, a keen mountain biker and has been doing taekwondo for 7 years so he has a set of thighs on him. The best I’ve found was Levi 504’s as they have a bit of stretch in them but they appear to be discontinued. He’s also at that age where they need to be branded. Does anyone know of any jeans with a bit of give in them?

Thanks! 👍🏻

I'd avoid jeans and go for chino or combat style trousers for him OP.

Thanks for the feedback. I managed to find some ‘vintage’ Levi’s on good old eBay! Smile

It's so frustrating isn't it! We love H and M slim fit x

Ive just discovered H&M plus fit I think it's called. Skinny fit but bigger all over. My DS 12 wares 152x - the x means they are wider

Yes I've seen those, I like H and M nice and stylish too. My Son doesn't wear skinny jeans from anywhere they look ridiculous but he has got one pair from H and M which look nice and are stretchy.
