DS (10) needs one for school. Last year's is a total joke (ie trousers etc faaaar too short).

He only wears it twice a week max so it doesn't need to be fancy. In fact I quizzed him on who weras named ones eg Nike etc and most of em don't (phew).

Trouble is M&S don't seem to do it any more. And I am struggling to find one. It needs to be cheap (sports shop offered me one for £45 shock). I found one inNext but not in store so we can't try it on and we need to really as DS1 v long-legged.

Anyone got a good one they can pass on?

Just got one for £14 from Next directory and have had it delivered to the local store which was free.

Does it have to be a proper tracksuit or will joggers and a zip up hoody be OK?

I found Navy joggers for £4 in Asda the other day and a lady in there was saying she was going to get a Navy top from M&S to go with it (none in Asda).

This was after I paid £7 for Navy joggers in M&S - only £3 but ggggrrrr.

John Lewis also sell joggers at various lengths but more pricey. If you have John Lewis near you check out their school uniform section. Its not the cheapest generally but I find all sorts there and even got some cheap end of line stuff the other day.

Sports World Direct sell cheaper sports wear and trainers than alot of sports shops. They have high street shops too.

Thanks ladies.
No doesn't need to be tracksuit I don't think.

I couldn't find anything at all in M&S, certainly not a zip-up hoodym they only had an overhead one (and that wasn't in stock (sigh)).

Will have a look in Asda but nobody seems to cater for this area. Order Next one into store and then try on there seems like best option doesn't it?
