THis is a subject that I know lildavid must be starting to investigate - cheep is there already.Some will suggest it's sad that if you're a denim nerd you plan to inflict it on your kids - I say, why not start em early!

SO, if you've trakced down any good denim for nippers, post em here. I'll update with a few items later, but thought I'd post this thread now because H&M have the best kids' denim i've seen, period, when you consider the price. I've seen them at the H&M store on Oford St, London, plus the new store in the old Dickes & Jpones on Regent St. Oxford St had only larger sized, 150cm plus; Regent St still has quite a few smaller sizes, mostly around the 105cm size, for 2 or 3 year olds. They're limited edition and have apparently been out three weeks, so grab them now.

WHy so good? Mostly the price: £15, less than the price of getting yer jeans shortened in SoHo.

They come in a nifty bag, proclaiming that they're made of organic cotton:

(Don't ask me why I shot an off-white bag on an off-white background, I can't answer that).

The jeans themselves are a slim but not skinny fit. The detailing is beautiful, chainstitched hems, blank Wranger-style rivets on one corner of the back pockets, conventional rivets elsewhere, and a leather belt patch. The denim is a lovely colour, slightly greencast.

Somewhere I have shots of Sammies, Levi's and Warnglers for kids, I;ll post em later, but do update with yours...

and if you don't have kids, remember that pint-sized vintage is only a fraction of the price of the adult stuff!

Yay, some great stuff there! WHere do they stock the Cheap Monday?

For the meantime, here's a repost of my nipper in his Sammies.

Plus a piar of Levi's Nevada reissues! Nice detailing but superthin denim that went thru at the knees in about two days (the Sammies lasted, er, around two weeks).

Concur on the H&M denim - my little dude has a couple of pairs. Also a mini pair of Levi's red tab. Nobody can wear-in denim like kids.

I remember a couple of years ago Nudie made a kids edition of the RRDS I think. Anyone else remember that? I'll try and track down some pics.

Ah well. If you happen to see those H&M in a 136cm size (or is it 134) how about a swap for that little vintage jacket?? (I'm in the US, they don't usually have as big a range here, altho I'll check and post if they have them in the Broadway stores)

It looks like so far, the examples have been of people buying for the children/ nieces & nephews.

Anybody here collect them just for kicks? I know that it's a little easier to find deadstock examples of Big E Levi's, for example and they're probably easier to display...

it's the same idea as those size 60 promo jeans they used to produce, except on the other side of the size scale

Awesome thread.

Kiya, I think that it's the raising, not the making, that's supposed to be difficult.

A couple people asked if there was any update on the sammies. WHich points out a huge problem with kids' denim, the little buggers grow out of them in a couple of months.

I remember now mine complained about them, said they were too stiff, I probably had a tantrum until he relented.

The sammies nonethless look cool, you don;t get whiskering but they do hold their indigo up against washes and they crock quite quickly so you get great knee and pocket fades. And of course you get plenty of practice patching knees.
