I found Adams polo shirts great!! Paid £7.99 each for a couple of schools "logo" shirts, they didn't tumble and the went really bobbly. The Adams ones were worn over and over again, kept their shape and didn't bobble at all...

..the trousers on the other hand...DS is a skinny little thing and we struggles to get him any that were long enough in the leg but didn't fall down! He wore Adams trousers for ages though I must admit, they did bobble but at least they fitted.

He now wear M&S trousers.

Another vote for M&S, although the Woolies ones weren't too bad either. ds is always too skinny for his trousers wherever we buy them from! Our school polo shirts are fine after two years of wear, but they come from the PTA. Never iron anything!

Oop - forgot the important question! We stick them all in the tumble drier (I think - dh does the washing)

I'd vote for Adams. Shirts tumble great, trousers are O.K. too, although I find you don't need to tumble as they dry really quickly.
We have 4 pairs, I wash them and hang them propryly folded on a Lakeland radiator airer overnight, they're dry by morning.
