10 year old boy's clothes for wedding

Where can I find fashionable smart clothes for a 10 year old boy. I hate to see boys feeling uncomfortable in suits and ties but there seems to be little else except for sports wear and jeans. I am looking for a young, cool look rather than something too formal. Help!

Next have some nice stuff; my ds wears chinos or cords and a nice short sleeved shirt to formal events.

M&S and Gap often have something for this (though may not be 'cool' as you say you're looking for - more the kind of comfy conventional things nell12 mentions)

My nephew was wearing a lovely monsoon collarless linen shirt and cords to his sister's christening last week - is that the kind of thing you meant?

mmm, maybe. Perhaps with a waistcoat to make iy a bit more dressed up? Off to look at the Monsoon site.

Argh, Monsoon boy's only go up to 8 years

sorry - he's 8 and quite small!

MMAM, I like the 2nd look but I think my poor boy would be chased round all day by aging relatives trying to tighten his tie and tuck in his shirt!!!

Debenhams (sp?) had some stuff when I looked last month for my brothers wedding.

In the end my ds (a very tall 7) wore a nice jumper and brown cordoroy trousers from george at Asda - Which he will wear again etc. I couldnt bear to spend a fortune on stuff he wouldnt have the opportunity to wear again

It is SSOOOOO hard isn't it? 10 year old boys just look wrong doing formal stuff!!!
