Hi, I'm a Boden virgin but am hoping to buy DS some of the autumn stuff. I just wanted an idea of the sizing.
He's 3.5 but on the 91st centile for height and weight. He's in mostly age 5-6 clothes but some Tesco 3-4 yrs trousers fit him as they tend to be broad around the middle. The thing is that he's chunky but a lot of his height is in his back rather than in his legs so trousers often have to be rolled up at the ankle in order to accommodate his girth.
He's got his heart set on red trousers and a red coat (totally obsessed with only wearing this colour)so even though I think the Boden stuff is very expensive, I will get it for him as everywhere else that does age 5+ boys' clothing seems to think that boys of this age only want skulls and grey/black clothes. Dammit! He's still only 3 and I like to see him in 'happy' colours!
So anyway, any advice re sizing would be gratefully received. Cheers!
Green Baby is nice but only goes up to 4-5. It's annoying that if you have a tall child that the clothes style for their size is innappropriately 'edgey and teenagery'. Nordic Kids is v.nice too but too expensive for our budget. I haven't been to H&M for a long time but I do remember gettting nice things in there for him when he was a baby.
