where do they normally shop?? Dh has awful dress sense style so trying to help ds. His 12th birthday is coming up so want to buy a few stylish bits. Also how does you teen have their hair. Dh always takes ds but it's always the same cut.

Jeans and hoodies seem to be the uniform and H&M is always a good bet. Jack Wills is popular too but more expensive.

Re. hair, 11 year old boys these days seem to have a kind of short back and sides with a shaggier bit on top. No idea if this has a more modern name. Here's a photo of a Beckham offspring as an example.

Yes I think that's the hair style ds wants a bit like Justin biebers I'm not clued up with the style name so never know what to ask for!!! Right will pick a few bits from h and m .

My son models his hair on the guy on the right, one of his favourite youtubers. He tends to wear plain joggers (he hates brand names at the moment, hope it continues though I'm not hopeful) and tshirts with Minecraft or skulls on. Joggers swapped for jeans on smarter occasions, a plain dark coloured shirt for super smart. Getting him into a hoodie when it is anything above freezing outside is a challenge, he insists that's he's always warm and going out in a tshirt in November is fine!

Oops didn't answer your question about shops - fortunately what with the dislike of brand names we usually go for supermarket stuff. He will accept Ted Baker from Debenhams which my mum buys for him, their polo shirts are lovely. We no longer have an h&m but that was a good one as well. TKMaxx often has more unusual things. Primark good for basics.

Jeans as tight as sausage peel. Slim fit t shirts (weirdly, v neck some of them). Vans or converse.

H&M, some Topman.

Next time he goes for a haircut he should bring a photo of the style he wants to show the hairdresser. That's what I do! grin

At that age DS wore mainly Superdry, Jack Wills and Hollister. Depends on how fast he's growing. It lasts well but it's annoying if they keep growing out of stuff when they've hardly worn it.
