Mostly Boden, character (Minecraft, Fortnite etc) T shirts from Tesco when I see them. Also things from FatFace, Debenhams and Gap.

9 year old DS recently needed new summer clothes. I was casually chucking H&M and m&S T-shirts into the basket when DD (14, very fashionable) took over as apparently he was looking lame.
- cotton Nike and Adidas shorts. Not sports ones- sort of T-shirts material
- Nike and Hype T-shirts
- champion hoodie.

He looks fine. They're apparently very comfy which is all he's bothered about!

H&M mostly. A little Boden, gap and Sainsbury's too. He only wears black, grey, navy, plain clothes. He's far more bothered about those requirements than where they're from.

When shopping for my nephew of that age I’ve bought a few bits from Zara and I’ve seen him in them so can’t be too uncool 🤣

Exactly the same, with occasional sportsdirect if something is cheaper there

H&m and Boden mostly. Also John Lewis. For treats and presents he likes horribly overpriced "merch" from his favourite you-tubers.

Crystal87 Tue 26-May-20 18:26:07

Sports Direct for sports brands. He has a few hooded tops, t shirts and jogging bottoms from Primark although now he's more into certain brands that all his friends have, mostly Under Armour and Nike.

TSSDNCOP Tue 26-May-20 18:28:56

Nike and Adidas for shorts/sweats
Vans/superdry/animal for t shirts and hoodies
Diesel and Next for jeans
R&b for naice shoes; Gazelles/trainers for kicking

AnnaNimmity Tue 26-May-20 18:43:06

he likes JD Sports and H&M.

AnnaNimmity Tue 26-May-20 18:43:28

and Nike trainers

I’ve just rediscovered Benetton and everything is really good quality. DS is 10, so bit old for some ranges and bit young (and small) for teen stuff.

Nike, Adidas, JD Sports, H&M

Jedstre Tue 26-May-20 19:14:49

JD sports, sports direct and primark

BikeRunSki Tue 26-May-20 19:21:44

H&M, Gap, Sainsbury’s, a bit of Next, the odd bit of Boden. He has a Hype T shirt, but doesn’t get the “hype”, he just likes the print.

notasportymum Tue 26-May-20 19:29:42

he’s gone right off the beautifully made, great to wash Boden stuff lately. This years haul came from H&M, Alex & Alexa sale, Get the Label, Saltrock.
