Tried M&S, John Lewis, BHS, etc. but can only seem to get white or blue. Debenhams have some - and in the sale - but only have one pack left in age 4, and I need 2 packs (4 shirts).

I hate trudging round the shops - especially for uniform - so wanted to buy online, but can't find anything. Even the uniform websites don't have grey.

Possibly here (the white shirts come in a grey option), but they're all done by neck size, so maybe they're all too big for a 4-year old. You'll have to measure. (have linked to boys' stuff, but you didn't specify - is it for a DS or DD?)

Sorry - ds. His neck is 10".

Bother - looks like they start at 11"sad.

My sympathies, until this year john Lewis and M and S did them but everyone seems to have stopped doing grey. Some of the uniform shops do them (search grey school shirts) but they are way more expensive than the other sources.
We are a state primary, I don't think you can continue to justify a uniform that costs well above the norm but having said that the girls at our school wear a green and white check shirt and you can definately only get that at a uniform shop!

I wouldn't object too much about getting it from the school's uniform shop (apart from the fact that they are hideously priced wink ) but for some stupid reason they don't do them small enough for my son (11" is the smallest there too).

They have them here but they also start at 11".

The other option is that you buy white ones in his size and use some Dylon machine dye to colour them grey.

Sidge - according to their site, the 11" would probably fit him OK. But they don't have a photo of it, so I can't see if it's the "right" grey. The square of grey looks too light.

Oh this is frustrating. Even if I did go round the shops, I probably wouldn't find any!

Order them anyway and if it's the wrong grey you can send them back!

Trutex do them
If you look at the size chart it says a 5 year old would be about a 11.5in collar.

I ordered from these last Friday and it all arrived today. No P&P charges.

Lovely, lovely, lovely people at Debenhams found some from one of their stores and are sending them!

(Thanks MrsWeasley - but he's a titch, so 11.5" would be enormous)

They are on the M&S website from age 3 by the look of things
