Clip waist trousers

Dear All, I know it seems like a small thing but please can someone advise how I get trousers for DS1 (12) with clips at the waist instead of buttons - he cannot manage buttons - I managed the school trousers by replacing them with clips but it took a lot of sewing and my sewing doesn't seem up to the stress of his waistband! Soft waists such as joggers are Ok, but he does need to wear something smarter than that occasionally and I just cant find any.

Thanks for any advice!

Next school trousers have clips at the waist wink

I've just linked to Sensory Smart on another thread, they do soft joggers that are cut and stitched to look like smarter trousers.

How about these trousers from Next which are just pull-on?

Thanks very much - the Next ones look good, Sensory smart only seems to go to age 12 but there must be something similar for teenagers and I will have a look around. Big thanks for your help

Marks and Spencers boys school trousers have a clip and zip fastening - well all of ds ones do, he is mostly wearing age 12, long although he is almost 14. They have some pull on casual trousers with a soft rib waist. The waist tends to be a bit big for skinny ds but might suit others. Ds has those next trousers and likes them. Ds favourite posh trousers are the Boden cord baggies, the largest size now is age 12, but they used to go up to age 14 so you might be able to pick some up secondhand or in a sale.( I got the last few pairs of age 13 and 14s from the N London shop last winter!). Very few places seem to do boys clothes beyond age 12!
