Whether you’re a beauty novice or a confirmed fashionista, this topic is for consulting Mumsnetters on all things style-related. Plus, check out our Swears By page for the inside track on the next Mumsnet must-have.
Matalan have some with Batman on IIRC - any good? Also random football-ish designs. (Also The Incredibles but they only seemed to go up to 6-7 or 8-9.) Their sizes run 10-11 and 12-13 though, don't know if that's a problem? They never get many 12-13s in either.
(DS2 has been sleeping in boxers since he was about 9, I always look longingly at pjs!)
It is quite hard to buy nice smart-casual clothes for that age group as well, Kanga - be prepared for a couple of frustrating years. (Sporty stuff is easy - just scour Sports Soccer!)
DS2(12) is just about tall enough now for small men's T-shirts (especially the way I wash 'em!) but trousers are still a problem. Next go up to 15-16 in theory, but not in the shops and he needs to try things on.
DS2 is getting a tummy - he used to be dead skinny, I'm hoping this is just puppy fat but meanwhile things are a bit tight round his middle. I love Gap but our nearest one is in Mancs I think A RL shirt would be very popular - will have to try TKMaxx, I can't think where else we'd find one of those.
Another goodish place for boys' stuff is ebay but of course you can't try things on. And also I bought a BNWT Lonsdale T-shirt from there, age 13-14, but when it came it had obviously been wrongly labelled and was only about 7-8! Aero kindly took it off my hands, bless her. But in future I think I'll ask for actual measurements before I buy anything.
