Boys tween clothing suggestions?

My son is 11 years old. He'll be entering middle school in Sept.

I used to be able to put whatever clothing on him I deemed awesome.

Plenty of Euro kids stuff, but more recently Diesel & TR t-shirts and premium denim. During the summer, it's junky tees and shorts for camp.

But now, he loves all of his free shirts that he wore on sports teams and the shorts & sweatpants.

But, I hear that the middle school boys only wear jeans, so yay for that although I'm sure it'll not be prem. denim.

What brands can you suggest that are in for that age group? He really likes whimsical tees too. Oh, and shoes too.

Thanks for the advice!

Ugh. The teenage years are going to kill me.

Hi Linda.

All the teens around here wear skinny jeans.

My 13 year old wears a lot of Gap Skinnies and Levi's 511 Skinnies. He isn't quite big enough to wear the Pac Sun or Zumiez jeans that his older brother wears but every once in awhile I get lucky and find a 26x28 that he can fit into.

Both my teenagers live in Vans (not the skater styles but the classic styles that lace up).

As for shirts, my 13 year old, who is still in kids sizes, wears a lot of Volcom, Hurley, and whatever he can find that fits at Zumiez, Pac Sun, etc. They do not like Abercrombie/Hollister.

I will try to remember to go through their shirts and stuff and see what other brands they are wearing specifically and get back to this thread.

Thanks Amber! This is really helpful and I'd love to know what other brands they are wearing.

I stopped by Zumiez today b/c my daughter was looking for skate shoes for herself and I found a t-shirt there for my son.

I used to wear the classic Vans too when I was younger. I wish I had time today to stop by Vans since it was near Zumiez.

More so my 10yo but both boys ride dirtbikes, so they love Fox Racing gear. My oldest likes to wear DC, ONeill, Quicksilver, Vans and Volcom (or other skater/surfer type wear). My youngest likes to wear goofy shirts, like the Diary of a Wimpy kid stuff. I tend to buy skinny jeans for both boys, not because they are 'in' but because they are both slender boys and I can buy for length and still have it fit relatively well in the waist. Unfortunately, they like the skinny jeans b/c they are in. Fortuntely, they just look like straight leg jeans on them. LOL
