    I'm another fan of best and less for school uniforms. In fact ill have to go in there Monday and get more track suit pants for my boys because typically they have worn through their knees!

    I have a similar gripe to add though- target and big w- cannot find doubled bed sheets. It goes single, king single, queen. What the?! Since when were double beds obsolete?

    I know it's crazy when you have real life stores near you but try Target online - I've always found some stuff on there when I couldn't find anything IRL.

    I've tried a few places on line but I'm not having much luck. Even B&L online doesn't have the right size in the required colour. We ventured into Lowes but would you believe the jumpers were in packets on a shelf so high we couldn't actually reach or see prices and there were no staff to assist so we left.

    Our nearest B&L proper (we have a spin-off B&L at our local shopping centre) is about 30 minutes drive away. I may as well just get another expensive one from the school uniform shop. ($22)

    Yes it's ridiculous the amount of school type clothes they get in, like hardly anything. I was lucky I found two pairs of the navy blue track pants I needed last week.
    I suggest if you see anything now to stock up!

    Not school uniforms but I was trying to find a nice winter coat the other day and I couldn't believe how much summer clothes there were and almost no winter clothes! I usually then shop online but sometime I just want to try things on dammit!

    I think you're in Vic? Check out Beleza. I invested in a pair of their track pants with the double layer knee for DD. They're pricey but the fleece is thicker too. She wore a pair of target ones for 1 day last week - hole in them straight away! But she wears the Beleza ones 3+ days every week and not a mark on them!

    I was the same. Had so much trouble finding a jumper. In the end i paid $20 for a jumper kiddo doesnt even like. Few weeks ago i managed to find some at a big w store and got quite a few in his size and the next size so we dont have the same issue for next year. You wouldnt think a navy jumper would be hard to find.
