Jeans for an extra skinny boy.
August 18, 2010 at 5:47 AM

My DSS has the metabolism of a humming bird. He is too tall to wear boys clothes and too skinny to wear teen/men's jeans, at least I can't find any in the stores in my area. I had been buying him girls size 3 and 4 Long from Old Navy but that time is coming to an end. His legs are getting longer but his waist isn't getting any bigger. Anyone know where I can find pants for the extra skinny boy?

    My dd has a guy friend who is super skinny, I'm not sure where he shops but I will ask her.

    I have no clue. My middle one is VERY tiny so I am sure I will have this prob with his waist when he gets older. Good luck.

    I don't know what size you need but I've had to resort to buying Levis for my son, he has a tiny waist 28/29 inches but needs a 32" inseam.  They are the only brand I've found that has anythng over a 30" inseam for such a small waist.

    My boys are tall and skinny too.  They wear rude fit jeans from Hot Topic.  They wear the 26 x 32 size.

    I did girls jeans for my son last year, he is super skinny but likes the skinny style jeans. I'm also at a loss for this year.

    My son wear  28/29 x 34...with a belt..

    but they don't really make that, so he wears a 30 x 34 with a belt. And looks like a sack of potatoes. Well he did back a few years ago when all jeans were BAGGY cut. now that skinny cut is in, he looks just a little baggy.

    He can still wear size 14 shorts if they are long enough, but he' 6'1". He is almost 17 and finally starting to not  be so skeletal.

    He just uses belts and cinches them up.

    Quoting llpalady:

    My boys are tall and skinny too.  They wear rude fit jeans from Hot Topic.  They wear the 26 x 32 size.

    I'll have to check there. if they have 26x32 maybe they'll have 28x34...or 36..... How long do boys keep getting taller?

    I have found the true Wrangler jeans run on the skinny side.  Though my boy is only 9 and in a size 6, but I have found those fit his skinny little legs best.
