Shirts for a super skinny boy
My ds2 is tall and thin. I cannot find shirts that fit him well. He can still wear like a 4t if it were long enough. Does anyone know where to find shirts that are slim cut and long enough as well as long enough in the sleeves if long sleeved?

Children's Place and Carters tend to be longer and leaner. Their girls' shirts are, anyway. I'm not sure about for boys. I mean, my son is thin, and the shirts fit him, but he's not what I would call skinny. My girls, though, are skinny.

I will check those out. I haven't bought anything from either place in a while. He is 52 inches tall and weighs 48 pounds. He wears 8 slim jeans for the length and those are still too big around for him. Thanks!

I think American Apparel. It runs small (size up), but it is also quite slim. Mini Boden runs pretty slim and so does Gap, to a lesser extent. My son is 25th in weight, 50th in height and the one place I am steering clear of for him is Hanna Andersson for sure.

For my daughter (tall and slim) I got her plain cotton Pajama tops from Lands End that were a larger size and a bit tight and that worked pretty well for a year.

My DS has the same body type and I have luck with Carter's and OshKosh.
