Struggling to find some nice clothes at the mo. Where should I be looking? Thanks

Yep, I get clothes for dd2 from H&M boys department (she's 8 and favours an androgynous look). Really good quality for the price.

Gap, boden, joules, fat face,zara - sales mostly or discount weeks. For immediate needs - m&s, debenhams & supermarkets. Gap is reliable with their winter down coats - always buy them in september's 40% (30% off plus 10% on top if buying 4+ items) for the coming winter. Have managed 70% off in last week of jam sales in the past but obviously that is hit and miss with sale remnants and chancy if the next size up is available at all.

Besides the ones already mentioned - Vertbaudet.

Sainsburys - far superior quality to other supermarkets but sizing an issue (usually size down).

M&S, Boden (sales) and John Lewis. Occasionally Debenhams but nowhere is greatly inspired at the mo.

TX Maxx for tops, jumpers and t shirts, can pick up French Connection, Ralph Lauren and Crew Clothing Company polo shirts for a really decent price especially when the sales are on.
John Lewis pyjamas in the sales.
Next jeans, although the don't last very long. I have trouble finding nice shoes.

Struggle with DS1 he has no interest in clothes at all. His three year old brother has more enthusiasm.
I used to like Boden but I feel like I've seen everything before. Like others have said H&M is pretty good.

Mostly entirely Gap. A lot of Old Navy too but I don't think you have that there?

Uniqlo is good, fantastic plain t shirts

Zara, H&M and sainsbury's

I usually like John Lewis, especially for tshirts and PJs, but last couple of years have been a bit poor. Got a lovely winter coat there this winter though.

I find I have to really hunt for stuff I like. I think it's hard to get interesting but not-too-grownup or trendy clothes for boys once they grow out of the younger boys ranges.

Gap - good tshirts (esp in summer), swimming shorts, hoodies, find their shorts/trousers too wide.
Next - we like their skinny jeans, the cut seems to suit my boys really well. There are usually a pair or two for sale that aren't too distressed! Usually have some good shorts in the summer. Get the odd tshirt/jumper/hoody there too, although I hate most of it.
H&M - PJs, stripy tshirts. Ds3 likes their coloured skinny jeans. (he looks ace in red jeans and a navy and white stripy top) Last winter got ds1 some lovely knitwear but not found it as good this winter.
Zara - shorts, shirts, sometimes tshirts.
M&S - got some great PJs there this winter, also a fab jumper (didn't like much else though) and some good casual winter boots. Socks, vests and pants!
Debenhams - again I don't like much of their stock but got ds1 a lovely jumper, sometimes a good place for short sleeved shirts in the summer, occasionally have nice PJs.

Oh yes Gap Warmest coats (down filled) are fantastic.

White Company do lovely PJs - we have a generous auntie who treats us to those!
