Clothes Shopping with Teen Boys

Shopping for a teen boy who is growing taller faster than wider is a very interesting endeavor, to say the least. It's impossible to find clothes to fit a 6-foot tall teen who only weighs 120. They have Big and Tall Men stores, why not Tall and Skinny Men stores? Is it too much to ask clothiers to make blue jeans with a 29 waist and 36 length? Thank goodness for belts!

I've been searching for 1 1/2 yrs and have called Men's stores in Baltimore, Chicago and points in between. Apparently clothes for tall and skinny just don't exist. I guess baggy jeans are cool, but taking up 4" with a belt on dress pants looks pretty bad. I've resorted to sewing dress pants and shirts for him.

I've found the solution for dress pants. A local uniform store sells pants unhemmed. We can get the right waist size and then just hem them to the right length. They're just long enough.
