Where to find Long John PJs for 4 year old (other than Boden/Gap)?

Would love some of these for DS1 as he gets so cold at night, but can't find any in the shops and cannot justify £30 for two pairs from Boden (no Gap here but I know they do sell them).
Any ideas where to look?

M&S do them I think but you have to look for them. John Lewis do them (at a similar price).

Primark PJs are actually OK - but they aren't the tight ones like the GAP/Boden ones.

Same problem with DD - except would prefer without 'High School Musical'

The White Company (but still £26 for a 2-pack). Nice and thick though.

Aldi were sellingthem last week.I got dd some (They were burgundy coloured,though!) FOR £4.50.Up to age 11.

Thanks, will check M&S website, though I couldn't see any in local store, have checked JL and none there either.
Also wanted to avoid Night Garden/Thomas/Bob the Builder etc etc which lots of shops presume all 4 year old boys must wear!

M&S on line do them.. some great ones. smile

Oh, and the Boden ones really are as tight as they warn - I ordered the size 3-4 for DS who's quite a petite 4-year-old, and he couldn't actually get his hands through the cuffs. I sent them back, and got the White Co ones instead.

ds(7yrs) has thermal long johns and long sleeve t-shirt from millets. He wears them under his rugby kit and loves them as they are very soft and cosy.

Only M&S ones which are tight are Xmas design, will check White Co though, hadnt thought of them.
Was the size ok for White Co JackieNo?
DS is not actully quite 4 yet and tall but skinny.

JackieNoHeadJustABloodyStump Tue 21-Oct-08 22:32:06

Yes - the White Co ones are fine - he hasn't actually worn them yet - am waiting for the really cold weather to hitgrin. DS is pretty slim, but the elastic in these is good - plenty of give, so not uncomfortable, but goes small enough that the trousers don't fall down. We have some summer versions that were DD's, and have been passed on to DS, that he wore at age 3 and this summer, age 4. Still looking good.

Next have some in their Xmas directory. £12/£13/£14 for a 2pack pair depending on size and only up to 6yrs.
I bought thermal long-sleeved vests and long johns in the sale at Mothercare last year but I don't know how much they were full price.

Pannacotta Tue 21-Oct-08 22:39:23

Thanks, will check Next too, and great idea re the vests and long johns, really wanted things with cuffs/elasticated bottoms so they dont ride up.

Jo Jo Maman Bebe do pjs up to 5yrs. Look good. Think £5 off if you buy two pairs.

MabelStark Tue 21-Oct-08 22:46:26

Boots do some lovely ones - can get Advantage cards points and treat self to yummy stuff!!!

fishie Tue 21-Oct-08 22:49:56

i got ds some old navy ones from ebay but they like gap are fairly thin.

oh how i loved my damart cosijamas as a child. i'd love some now, they were quite elegant.

Pannacotta Tue 21-Oct-08 22:50:20

Boots v cute I agree but no long johns, will look at jo jo, really like their things had forgotten to check their range.

fishie Tue 21-Oct-08 22:53:00

ha well maybe not

BoffinMum Tue 21-Oct-08 22:55:47

Hey, Tchibo brilliant and very cheap for things like this because it's cold in Germany. Great wellies, slippers, ski gear, thermal jeans and so on. Only snag is they run out of stuff very quickly as they have a different promotion every week.

JackieNoHeadJustABloodyStump Wed 22-Oct-08 08:14:51

How about Fleecy under-layers at Muddy Puddles? If you want things with cuffs.

SpookyButNice Wed 22-Oct-08 08:21:53

DS has these - they're very comfy and soft!

lillypumpkinpie Wed 22-Oct-08 08:24:17

They were doing kids thermal set in my local Aldi yesterday
