Ya know, this is always a rough one.  I personally feel kids should find what makes them comfy.  My sons don't like dressy pants or jeans.  they wear athletic pants to school.  Sure, I'd like them to look a little nicer but this is like their 'work' (being at school) so it is important for them to be comfortable as they go about their day.  I'd buy a pair of what he likes for school and a second pair of what you like for other times that he goes out and about (if you can afford two pairs).  good luck
