clothes for 12 yr old ds - where from?

ds1 is 12, hates shopping, is very fussy, but desperately needs some new clothes.

Shopping with/for him is complicated by the fact that he gets extremely anxious (has TS) and he finds shops/malls etc very difficult places to be.

He won't wear logos of any kind, doesn't like things too baggy or tight - he's very sporty and slim, average 12 year old boy height. He's not really into fashion but is very self-conscious. He's just started gelling his hair and pulling his trousers down low (argh!) Clothes have to be comfortable and "old friends" - things usually have to sit in a drawer for a few months before he'll touch them.

He's starting to grow out of his favourites or they're falling by the wayside due to constant wearing and washing, but pretty much everything I've tried bringing home recently has been vetoed

For some reason he's "off" Gap - Boden, M&S, Next all wrong for various reasons

Any ideas - please?

I swear by Debenhams for DS1 (15). They do clothes for boys up to 16 years old.

They are online, so you don't even have to drag them into town.

New Look men's, Hollister or H&M for cheapie clothes, Abercrombie or Jack wills for more expensive stuff. All layers and plain t shirts, DS (16) has been wearing for at least 3 or 4 years.
