    DS is 11 and his MS has a uniform, thank goodness. But, he is extremely brand aware and picky about brands. He mostly wears only Nike and Addidas athletic wear and soccer jerseys of teams he loves (won't wear a jersey that isn't authentic). He has a few nicer outfits for fancier occasions, but we don't have many of those. He's actually a lot more picky about his clothes/shoes than DD, and always has been.

    Uniform during the week. On weekends, its Dr Who or Star Wars t shirts (long sleeve in winter). Pants--he loves Mulberry Bush lined pants. But he this is the last year he will be able to wear them. He also likes sweats. He will probably wear some sort of warm up pant. He hates jeans with a passion. He wears Nike tennis shoes only because they are relatively cheap (the ones I buy) and they last the school year. In the summer, its cargo pants, t shirts, and Keen sandals or Nike tennis shoes. He does wear a spiffy fedora with 2 Dr. Who Buttons that people compliment him on :-) (but no hats at school)

    He will wear a thinner coat to school--wears his ski coat only if it is really cold. He will wear mittens and a hat at recess. (he is in 6th grade) And he wears the ski coat and bibs when we ski/sled--which is fairly often.

    I don't care as long as he is covered, not wearing ripped/torn or really dirty clothes and they have to fit him--not too small.

    This is is us. Gator is 12yo and wears a uniform all week long. Then on Sundays, for church, he wears his uniform pants and I pair it with a sweater and button down shirt. In the summer he wears his uniform pants with a golf shirt to church. Other than that he has 2 pairs of jeans (Levi's 505) that he will wear with a golf shirt or button down and sweater if he wants to dress to impress, a ton of t shirts from various places and some athletic c9 tees. He pretty much lives in his c9 to shirts and c9 athletic/warm up pants at home. In the winter he throws a fleece zip-neck over it all. He still fits into some Janie and Jack sweaters so I always scan the sales section for their sweaters. They are great quality so I don't mind spending more because I can pass them down to his brothers. Not sure where I'm going to get him sweaters when he outgrows that brand.

    Winter coats and bibs are lands end (because he loves the thumb-hole sleeve) and he down hill skiis all winter so he has a nice ski coat too.

    Athletic shorts and T's are our Tween uniform here. He could care less. Oh I would just laugh if he demanded all Nike or Under Armor We have some but if he wants it not on sale he can buy it. Thankfully he hasn't gotten into that.

    Mine too. Although to be fair, the younger one is a competitive tennis player, so maybe some day.....

    UA or Nike, mostly shorts and dri fit t shirts or UA tech, either short or long sleeve. As to winter coat, buy a Patagonia down sweater jacket (hi loft version is probably heavier/warmer) and hope for the best. The other morning it was 40 degrees going up to 45 degrees and I counted 6 boys on the playgrounds with shorts and hoodies on (and those stupid Nike elite 3/4 socks). For now, this is a hill I am willing to die on but I suspect I won't be able to keep up the good fight much longer.
