please

TIA

Where do you buy your DS stuff or where do they buy stuff from?

why is it negative?

How about some sort of surfwear brand? Ripcurl, Quiksilver, Oxbow etc?

RTKangaMummy Sun 10-Aug-08 14:48:58

The other kids say a horrible phrase about GAP so he won't wear his GAP fleece when we are up here.

He has Quiksilver Tshirts and his schoolbag is Billabong but we got all of that in Australia,

ahh is it the Gay And Proud thing my sisters DSs say the same!

Have you looked at Boden or fatface?

Try Replay - is very cool label round here.

Tommy Hilfiger?

anything here?

ThatBigGermanPrison Sun 10-Aug-08 14:58:19

here? may be more than you want to spend ... but you may have more luck buying him a hoodie than a fleece.

surely most sports stuff should be fine? particularly anything footie oriented?

RTKangaMummy Sun 10-Aug-08 20:59:26

Deffo brill thanks

I will take a look at those websites

Football stuff is no good as he and the other boys are not interested in football at all

He has mentioned Abercrombie but they are horrendously expensive in uk

Am going to ask his uncle to look next time he goes to USA, unless any of you know how to get them here?

Do you have ebay the exchange rate at the minure is mental its nearly 2 dollars to the pound so should be able to get a bargain abercrombie one from the States shipped

theirmummy, DP got some Abercrombie stuff shipped from the States only to be sent a whopping 'import' charge which far outweighed the savings he thought he was making.

my ds (14) likes TopMan!!!!

twoluvlykids Mon 11-Aug-08 15:24:02

and all the surf brands. theres a nice brand called BOLT which is very plain if he doesn't like logos

cornsilk Mon 11-Aug-08 15:24:25

o' Neills do cool surfy kids stuff. Also quicksilver. My ds gets teased in GAP also. He'll only wear NIKE now.

twoluvlykids Mon 11-Aug-08 15:26:43

or a chain called "CULT"..v popular

theirmum Mon 11-Aug-08 15:38:54

Really I have never been charged import tax and I have bought quite a lot from the US I think it could be because the sellers always put that its a gift!
