We have been invited to SIL's silver wedding anniversary "do" and I'm led to believe it will be a smart-ish affair though not overly so. When I go to weddings etc (admittedly it's rare), I'm often astounded by just how casually boys seem to be dressed. I think it's really difficult to find the right level of "smart"
Can anyone help? Without breaking the bank! I was thinking this shirt at least for my eldest ds(7) but are jeans ok? I think I'd prefer not but he doesn't have anything else! I also have a 4yr old ds and a 2yr old ds. Girls no problemo, they are looking forward to hitting the shops for new gear!
Second vote for Next boyswear. I only have girls but lust after the boys clothes!! My nephews also have a really nice suit and tie from John Lewis boys if this is the kind of thing you are thinking of and I think Marks and Spencer Autograph has a few smart pieces too.
I think that shirt would be lovely. When I've taken my little boy (almost 2) to smart 'do's' I have tended to dress him in similar shirts with a nice pair of cords (from Next) and a nice knitted tanktop (from Matalan) over. He always looks smart, but the individual things are not too smart for everyday wear and can be mixed and matched with other stuff. Layers were also easy to remove when he got himself sweaty running around the dancefloor in the evening!
