Boys vests

Hi All,
My son starts school in August. We are in Scotland so it won't be warm most of the school year. Thankfully his school uniform is sky blue polos rather than white (would never stay clean). As I won't have large amounts of white clothes to wash I thought I would avoid white for vests too (means I won't have the machine on for small loads) - but I can't find sky blue boys vests anywhere. Is it just too early in the year? Has anyone ever spotted them?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

M&S have them in t shirt style vests online

Thanks, CMOTDibbler.
I'll keep these in reserve in case I can't find anything else, but I was hoping for the sleeveless type. The search goes on .............

As it's just vests couldn't you just buy white then wash them in with the shirts. If they go a bit blue, so what?

What a brilliant idea MrsNuckyThompson. Thanks.

Why would you need to do a small wash for white vests? I wash everything at 30 and never have any problems with colours running or whites going grey.

Hmm. I don't know what I do wrong but my whites so seem to lose their brightness if I wash in with colours. But if a blue tinge I guess no problem.

Thanks for the link penny13610. I'll take a look.

Or get some white ones and have a tie dye session with DS
DS2 was really messy and I have never strived to be a bright white fanatic, so we tie dyed some and had some darkish blue ones as well.

Hi penny13610. What a brilliant idea making a craft activity out of it. My son will love that.
