Help - In finding longer leg jeans for kids

banned9y, 2m agoPosted 9 years, 2 months ago
Anybody know of anywhere that sell kids jeans in different leg lengths

Yes, i have thought of all the obvious like chopping his legs off, wearing shorts in the winter, wearing braces, adjustable waists (but they are still to big everywhere)

He is 5, but all 5 to 6 bottoms are so big and baggy on him, but 4 and 5 are too short :-(

Any ideas welcomed :thumbsup:

Its the case of going round the shops and trying different ones on him till you find something right.One good thing is if you can buy the length,you not need worry about the waist as some shops like Next & Gap have adjustable hidden straps inside which you adjust.It can be the case of buying best you can and turn them up until he grows into them more.

They dont need turning up, the next size up are fine for length, thay are too big everywhere else, so yes they adjust in waist but they hurt if you pull them too much, and they are massive everywhere, maybe it is the fashion to look like a skater boy, but at five :oops:

[SIZE=2]Find a big & tall - superb things for large kids and large men - they do a mix of long thin trousers, jeans, shirts etc, though unless you find an outlet version it is v expensive.[/SIZE]

Do you know anyone with a sewing machine who could make some clothes,sounds a bit old fashioned as hardly anyone has children wearing homemade clothes.
I bet he don't like shopping with you,boys get really bored when you lug them round shops,where my daughter loves it,she just helps herself trying on shoes specially,even if they adults!
I get this sort of problem with skirts for her tho,depending on the style of them,they just slip down,shes got quite a few I've bought in sale and I really don't know when they going fit her,cos when they will fit her around the waist maybe in 2 yrs time,they going be too short.Like 2 I bought fasten with 3 buttons either side and massive for her.I'm hoping she gains some weight,but not likely,I got her weighed and height taken and they said she about right for her size.Her school clothes are a bit big for her too,wears 3-4 yr school cardigans and even tho she be 5 in March they bit too big.
I think the childrens clothing market need update more in way of sizing.

absolutely main thing,I'm sure you find more for him to wear as he fills out more,my 7 yr old boy def easier to buy clothes for now,I buy age 6-7 in jeans and tops age 7-8 at moment and he wasn't always easy to buy for a few yrs ago,not everything you could find to fit despite trying on 2 sizes of the rail of same garment.

My daughter as a problem with shoes too,well she measured a size 7 in Clarks last mth,and their school shoes start at size 9,like most shops that sell schools shoes do same.Anyway I go to Clarks or somewhere that sells shoes in widths cos her feet so narrow too.Anyway they only had 1 black pair that was suitable for her and even tho they a size 7,the girl in shop said really they a tad bit big upon her trying them on her,so we make sure she always wears thicker socks with them for school.The school uniforms list state black shoes,and to be fair some of the other shoes that fit her in there are more for toddlers and they looked babyish really for school,plus no black onesHer feet are fine in them,they not rubbing but it would been good to buy a half a size down.Her feet always been small,she goes up a shoe size every 12 mths or so,some would say thats lucky,as many parents find themselves buying shoes all time before they even worn out.I was also lucky that day as my Mum bought both my children shoes for school.

Had a look online and couldnt find anywhere else

I have a similar problem with my kids, all are slim and long legged.
up to age 8ish i could find half elasticated jeans/trousers almost anywhere, adams clothing was always reliable. now the only ones i have found with a small waist and good length are hawk or oilily jeans.

oilily - damn expensive.

I saw on La Redoute - I think - that they have a few trousers which you can select ' slim fit'. You could maybe buy a size 6Y just slimmer fit?

Think I recall seeing some trousers for slim build on Additions/Littlewoods, also?

Hope this helps

i find it quite shocking that clothes can be found for the fattest of kids almost anywhere, yet our slim ones can no longer find anything to fit.
the worlds gone mad, why do they cater for kids that need help making their problems easier to cope with and ignore our slim and most likely fit & healthy kids?
surely it hasn't always been like this and stores have changed their sizing to suit todays chubbier market.:|

i know but i'm happy to look for good second hand pairs and can usually find them for @ £10- £15. they last forever or rather outlive the hammer my son gives them and look good until he's outgrown them.

Thanks guys, have left rep for all your help :thumbsup:

By the size up that fits length wise and just stick some elastic in the waist band.

Try TKMaxx and sometimes this site has them in sale.

http://www.childrensalon.co.uk/index.php

I've ordered from them before and been in their shop too so can recommend.
Never seen any 2nd hand in charity shops,and my partner works in 1 too,and I bet none ever come in.

Sorry if you've already said it!!

A belt would be the next best option, but the elastic is less noticeable.
