Clothes for petite 10 year old DS / boys

Where do you shop for your 10 yr old boys?

DS is starting to get a bit more clothes conscious, but he's small for his age and slim so e.g. the cut of the 8 plus range in H&M mean those clothes often drown him (and not in a cool baggy way).

Any suggestions for places to shop that are a bit cooler and not too babyish where I can get stuff that will fit him?

I've suddenly realised that my baby is actually growing up, and those cute Boden brights aren't really cutting it for him anymore! I'm just not sure where to take him shopping to find stuff that he'll like and fits!

Oh, he's not sporty or into football so joggers and football shirts aren't his thing either!

H&M has quite a range of skinny trousers/jeans, so I am a bit surprised you say they are baggy.
Have you tried Zara or Mango kids? Both cool for preteens

My skinny 9 year olds wears mostly, he also owns a lot of girls clothes from their that fit him much better.

Sorry, it's probably more the tops that are an issue with H&M! I'll have a look at Zara, I don't think there's a Mango here but I'll have a look online, thanks!

I can't get mine out of shorts. We got some decent LS shirts for DS in Next the other day. Just grew out of size 6-7yrs.

My skinny boys often get tops in gap & trousers in H&M.

Skinny jeans from Polarn O. Pyret work for us. Also clothes from Vertbaudet.
