I'm Bodened out and, more importantly, so are they. To many prints and a bit young for their ages now. Am specifically looking for tops but it would be nice tom have them not wear jeans all the time too! Gap is okay but my boys are tall and lean so Gap tops can look sloppy on them. Have checked out Fat Face, John Lewis and Marks. Don't like Next. Oh, and I'm talking everyday wear so not Timberland!! Thanks.

H&M and Zara are fantastic for this age group and both cut quite slim (I have a tall and very slim 10yo). Great for hoodies, cargos,slim jeans and long sleeve t's. I still buy him Boden slim fit jeans as they fit so well and arent obviously Boden iyswim

Im in the position where my 10 year old hasnt fitted in 10 year old clothes for the last year or so, so Im now completly stuck! as the clothes i did like dont cater for above 11-12 years. He used to have alot of Joules stuff and Boden had run its course.

Ive just bought him some tops from zara, jeans i get from gap or marksies. he wasnt keen on any trousers in zara.

we both went into H&M the other weekend and left with nothing, i had such hopes but it was awful.

My ds 9 likes quite a few things in River Island , would also recommend Zara.

found some good stuff in Debenhams, good for hoodies, t's and tops.

My 10 year old does love his boden jeans got them in the sale so not so bad and they are well made, stand up to the skating, bike grease etc.

I had no idea anywhere sold 8-10 yr old boys. Are you sure it's legal?

I second river island, they don't have a lot of children's clothes but what they do have is really nice

Debenhams (Blue Zoo and Red Herring mainly) and H&M.

The variety of jeans in Debenhams is fantastic. A good selection cuts/styles with nice details.

Tesco & Asda

H&M are great for jeans/trousers, Joules for tops/hoodies, Zara for slim fitting stuff and also Sainsburys TU has some good hoodies/tops now and again.

h&m mainly, but he likes skatewear as well, so dc, vans and etnies. These i tend to buy in local skateboard shop. Not much comes up on ebay unfortunatley.
I like Boden for him, but he doesnt like boden anymore apart from the odd pair of jeans.

My friend totally reccomends hollister if you can bear the dark, and look for the sale.

Charity shops or hand-me-downs grin.

Lands End is good for basics

What about Katvig and the like? Tend to be pretty skinny fit on the tops so might suit? I would love to buy a Viking Danafae top for my nearly 8yo and he would love it! Viking Kids or lots of places stock Danish design now.

H&M M&S Gap and LaRedoute

My ds likes Plain Lazy and Weird Fish, plus Gap.

Millie1 Wed 12-Oct-11 22:33:59

Looking at these now, thanks - have ordered a couple of tops from Debenhams and like some of the Hollister stuff.

SoupDragon Thu 13-Oct-11 07:23:03

I would have thought Holister too big for 8-10 yrs

H&M...the odd thing from Boden in the sale. Refuse to pay their prices for everyday clothes.

90% of DS clothes are from H&M - I love it.

I buy the odd thing from Fat Face too (sale only).

Lands End is brilliant for boys stuff.
