They look so shlumpy on him. I buy from children’s place, target etc
I noticed some boys are wearing very well fit shirts. Not baggy. Where can I find that?
He’s in 5th grade btw.

Maybe you need to size down.

I find the children’s place polo shirts get shlumpy very fast. The collars wrinkle and the shirt stains don’t wash out well. I love other stuff from children’s place, just not the polos!

I wanted to order jcrew shirts from amazon since their return policy is so good and I’m not sure which size my son needs but it looks like I can only buy directly from j crew. Is that where you order from?

Maybe iron them?

Or let them hang dry instead of tossing them into the dryer?

French toast lays nicer than children’s place but it’s too thick for the summer. It’s very heavy.

The thinner fabrics don't stay as neat looking.

Target has uniform polos that imo stay good. The other ones they make get shlumpy looking

I never heard of this website. Great prices but I can’t find short sleeve polos (with collars).

When it comes to these types of clothing its usually the more pricey brands that have nicer fit/quality.
I also shop target for my kids but I def see a difference in fit from more expensive regular brands.
Jewish brands it totally depends on the brand. Some very expensive fancy jewish brands have really bad fit same for cheaper jewish brands. And some expensive jewish and cheaper brands have amazing fit.
You have to find the brand and fit that works for you.

Treating the shirts kindly helps keep it looking newer and fresher for longer. (Don't wash hot. Don't tumble dry)
Also ironing the collar makes a big difference.

Sometimes kids look good in a brand for a year or 2 and then they need a new fit.
Or the company changes the fit (like next direct recently did with their pants)
