So its not too early to think about uniform for the new school year – but only because there are plenty of items on sale now!
I thought you might like to know that Ethicaluniform.com has offers on their red polo shirts and sweatshirts – both are fairtrade. Currently polo shirts are £3.95 each and sweatshirts £5.95
I am told that Aldi has a sale on now for uniform too (today – Thursday – uniforms are incredibly cheap in the Aldi specialbuys: https://www.aldi.co.uk/en/specialbuys/thursday-specialbuys-25th-july/)
Also Gap has 20% off at the moment: http://www.gap.co.uk/browse/category.do?cid=83834&departmentRedirect=true&tid=guem002021&EV=GUKCIC07252013&DI=65137451&CD=GNC_GIN#department=48

Worth noting a few sellers of uniform that seem reasonable:
Next – they have a good variety of Navy trousers (around £7 -£8) – some flat fronted and jeans style too. My experience of them is that they last well. They also come in three fittings (slim, standard, plus) and additionally have adjustable waists. Jeans style have the advantage of wearing well and not needing the trousers taking up (they look ok if a tiny bit long).
H & M have a uniform shop – red cotton jumpers are reasonable and last OK at £5.99: http://www.hm.com/gb/product/13202?article=13202-D#article=13202-C
Marks and Spencer has a big online uniform shop: http://www.marksandspencer.com/View-all-Boys-School-Uniform-All-School-Uniform-Kids/b/2109343031?ie=UTF8&pf_rd_r=10EHQP8CV7NPES1EX0S2&pf_rd_m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=43629030&pf_rd_p=475115433&pf_rd_s=left-nav-2
They have trousers at £8 – £10 and red polo shirts at £5 for 2
Asda George have red cotton school jumpers for £3 – and ours have lasted well.
BHS online have 20% off and 2 pack polo neck for £4.50:
