Clothes for large pre-teen boy
Our DS takes after one side of the family and had bulked up in anticipation of his growth spurt - he's currently a 34 waist but only 5 feet tall so all pants need to be altered to fit in length...(please no critical comments - he has very large bone structure - hips, knees, ankles, size 10 men's shoes, stays active, eats fairly healthily and is a victim of genetics right now - his parent and uncles were the same - all chubby and big boned in adolescence and then sprouted up).
I'm looking for style help from other moms of bigger boys - he hates to wear jeans but can't go everywhere in shorts and athletic t-shirts. Any style tips for comfortable pants (especially when it's chilly out) and shirts that cover his waist? I've been buying men's capri style athletic pants to deal with the length issue and he wears a lot of sweat-jackets but I'd prefer a more put together look for him....thanks in advance!
