    Default Wear to shop - Clothing for 6th grade dance and graduation

    DS lives in athletic wear shorts and t-shirts. I can occasionally get him into jeans and an athletic t-shirt. I need to take him shopping for something to wear for the 6th grade dance - jeans + nice shirt should be fine - then something for his graduation - pant + shirt + tie. Where do I look - his clothing is target Champion brand, nike, Adidas from sporting stores. Shoes, I think he can wear his black adidas leather sneakers for the dance, but a nicer shoe for the graduation.

    Thanks.

    I always start at Once Upon a Child for that stuff. Kohls next.

    I try a couple thrift stores first for 1 time wear things. Then maybe Kohl's or JCPenney.

    JCPenny's for pants and shirt. They have regular, slim and husky, always have coupons. And if they don't have size/color in store, it's easy to have it shipped.
    Amazon for ties (loss of lengths to choose from)

    DS is 12 and wears men's slim XS. He's going to a Bar Mitzvah in a few weeks and I'm planning to get him something from H&M or ON. He needs to look nice, but likely won't fit into it for 8th grade graduation, so I don't want to spend much.

    JCP or H&M are very reasonable.

    Target has dress clothes, too, so if he already likes Target brands, you can try there. I have got my 12-year-old nice dress pants and shirts. They also sometimes have coats (so like a suit), but not always. They might have more right now for Easter.

    I like Levi's dyed jeans for a nicer casual look. DS has some in navy blue, khaki, and gray. They are comfortable like jeans but look a bit dressier (for the school dance). They work well with polo-style shirts or sweaters when it's cooler.

    I also agree with JC Penney. I've had good luck at H & M for my daughter, but never for my son. It's too trendy, IME/IMO.
