my son is 15 but he wears clothes intended for 12 yr olds, he is very small and he has developed a guycrush on the guy who works in our local hardware store, every saturday we have to stop by the store, discuss the weather etc with this guy jo, luckily jo is flattered not weirded out, i think its adorable!

so anyway jo looks alot like this,

as you might imagine and rightly or wrongly hank has decided that to look more like jo he needs a pair of dockers jeans, i have no idea where he has got this notion from, i dont even know if they are the jeans that jo wears but hey ho!!

now the problem is that i cant find them in kids sizes... ive had a look here http://www.twenga.com/price-dockers-pleated-jeans.html

(cos he will grow so i dont really want to pay full price for them now if they wont fit him in a years time) but its not giving me many options!! anyone know anything about kids dockers? do they exist? and if not what is the next best thing?

hanks for your help everyone, me hank and im sure jo appreciate it!!

What about carpenter style jeans?  They'll probably be easier to find.

Carpenter jeans tend to be looser, and have a ton of pockets, loops (like to carry a hammer on), etc.

Find a Carhartt store or go on line. It is worth the money!  They have dress pants and work pants like picture.  Measure his waist and legs.  Depending on how round his waist is he might be able to were a size 28 (small man size)
