All I want is flipping white primary polo shirts, aged 10-11 and long sleeve easy-iron white shirts aged 11-12

Stores full of Xmas jumpers and socks - no school uniform. Can't get the right sizes online. I'm desperate - DS2 is down to two polo shirts at the moment and one is distinctly dingy and stained blush Don't the stores realise that we need this stuff all year round?

Good luck, I've given up and bought polo shirts with logos on them from the school. That's how desperate I was. Who buys logo'd polo shirts?!

ASDA appear to have both boys and girls polos.
3/4 sleeve white shirts for girls.

Sainsbury's have them, or at least ours did last week

Feel your pain, DD moved schools during October half term and we had to buy black jogging bottoms and hoodie, seriously took ages to find them and the bottoms are still too big.

The big Tesco Extra near us does have polo shirts in but currently no pants in ages 7-8 years! Some Morrisons also have clothing sections and so does John Lewis (if you have one near you).

YABU my local matalan, asda, tesco, m&s, bhs and debenhams all have school uniform in store, not as much as the have in July but I'm sure between all them you should be able to find something!grin

We are in rural sticks and there is literally nothing in the big stores - a few random sizes, girls' stuff - all bunged in a corner out of the way.

Might have to be M&S then, but it's a bit posh for us and when I tried to order the polo shirts just then it asks me to select a colour and won't proceed past that, even tho' there are no colours to choose from .... might have to get out the bleach on the existing shirts ,,

Marks and Next both seem to be fully stocked. your post reminded me to order DD1's new uniforms as she has outgrown her pinafores already.

Next have both of those things, online.

White polo shirts are always easy. It's blue ones that are like hen's teeth for most of the year.
