    How old is your DS? I buy my 10 year old mens size xxs and xs shirts from Jay Jays. They have lots of Adventure Time, regular show, and video game style T-shirts. They always have the cheap clearance stuff, especially now as they are getting rid of summer stock. I just got DS a bunch of $7 shirts.

    Yeah, we've already been getting a few t-shirts from JayJays and even EB and a shop here called Brutal Deluxe (gaming and pop culture merchandise store). Pants I still have to buy elsewhere because he's so tiny around the waist. I was going through his stuff the other day and realised some of his undies are size 4-6 and they still fit lol.

    Haha, we have the same issue with pants. DS is so fussy about the type and fit that he will wear too. I usually just buy best & less shorts as they tend to have the adjustable tabs on the sides. I've noticed their range in older boys clothes seems to be on the decline though.

    Yeah, and it's not the nicest. We bought barely any new summer stuff this year because DS just hated it all. Thankfully he didn't need much and I was able to get some stuff at the op shops. He will need at least 1 pair of jeans for winter though so I'm looking at the Target basics for that. Can't go wrong for $10.

    On a tight budget atm so mostly my local buy sell swap for dd. My bff just shouted my kids a whole bunch of stuff from Next online and my ds loves their clothes so we are sorted mostly for winter. I also like Next stuff as I find it easy to re sell and doing this means I can usually get at least half of my kids new season stuff (as long as I time it right).

    Is there like a DFO where you are?
    I shop when there's sales on, Myer, target, big w, Kmart (very rare at Kmart) cotton on kids, pumpkin patch, and best and less for around the house. Bonds.

    There's a lot of cheap stores online, however I like to feel the material.

    I tend to shop at the end of a season when clothes are heavily discounted. I already have clothes for DS for winter 2016! I'm pretty fussy with what he wears. I don't like a lot of the boys clothes here. I buy from M&S, Next, Mothercare, Hoot kids, GAP, Carter's, etc. Like @elijah's Mum I buy a lot from the US when they have their sales.

    I have recently discovered Charlie and Me (which I believe is a sister store to Pumpkin Patch) and quite like some of their clothes. They seem a bit cheaper than PP. Rhubarb can also have some well priced items that wear really well.

    Mostly Target, sometimes Big W or Kmart, or Cotton On Kids.

    DS also rocks a few skateboard brand t-shirts, which DH buys from the U.S when he places an order for himself.

    My DS has grown so much since last winter, he'll be needing a major wardrobe top-up this year.

    We've started getting some really good hand-me-downs from a friend, but it'll probably be another 2 years until a lot of the stuff fits him.

    I'd love to source more clothes from funky places in the U.S, but the exchange rate quite frankly blows at the moment
