    Default Winter boy's clothes that are nice/quality/not ugly?

    DS has grown a lot since last winter and I'll need to top up his wardrobe with some larger items.

    Which store/s sells nice boy's clothes at the moment? When I say nice, I mean cute and of a reasonable quality/price.

    I'm mainly after comfy pants/trackies and some non-garish jumpers/fleecy tops.

    Does anyone else find that a lot of the boy designs are downright ugly? Like those random baseball style numbers/sport motifs/motorbikes etc?

    It seems like it's so much easier to find cute girl's stuff. Ranty rant.

    I found some nice things at myer recently and they had 25% off kids clothes. I usually just buy bonds/target/big w but bought a few 'nicer' things that were still not too expensive. I don't have DS only DD but bought some boys clothes for her to get away from pink occasionally!!

    I buy heaps of stuff for DS from Next. It's online though - not a store as such. They have the best boys things - track suits, jumpers, jackets. I've found the quality really good and a reasonable price. It's free shipping if you spend over $35 and it arrived in 3-5days.

    I don't buy that many clothes for my kids anymore. They're in a uniform 5 days a week so I really only need to cover weekends.

    So with that in mind I buy quality over quantity. I wait for store wide discounts then load up at Seed and country road. My son only has about 4 pairs of pants and 6 long sleeve shirts. Add a couple of jackets : pullovers and he's done.

    Thanks for the offer hon

    There is an H & M opening in my area later this year, but no firm date. I'm keen to check it out as I've heard good things.

    I tried to have a gander at Next, but it looks like their website isn't working properly right now

    Yeah I bought some jumpers for my boys from next and they're really good quality and I love them.

    Other than that, I tend to go to Kmart/big w and just buy the more plain stuff, dark grey trackies from Kmart were good, a grey or black hoodie from bigw, the plain long sleeved tops that are really cheap. I went to H&M for jeans this year and got some really nice blue ones and a pair of green ones to for DS1.

    I just jumped on - here's the link to the Aussie site - it seems to be working.

    Hope I'm allowed to post that - if not let me know and I'll remove it.
