Some of you know that we are going a bit non-traditional and having kids make up the majority of the wedding party. The trouble I'm running into regards the boys shirts. I have an average sized 15 year old and a skinny minny 10 year old and 2 inbetweens. Where can I find the SAME shirt that will fit an average sized 15 yr old and a skinny runt 10 year old? The 10 yr old will NOT fit a mens size small, likewise the 15 yr old will not fit a boys size 16.

I'd like the shirt to be the same color or very similar to the girls dresses.

I'd also like it to be similar in style to a camp shirt or cubavera shirt, in rayon or poly/cotton blend.

Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to find me a shirt! Doesn't have to be online, a store would work as well, as long as its a chain available in the greater Seattle area.

          These aren't exact, but they're pretty similar...the first one is the boy's, the second is the men's

            Actually I think most of the shirts on there come in both white and blue so you can pick and choose and probably find a better style match!

              I found my boys , age5/12 at the Gap (you could look online at gap kids) You could also look at old navy, H&M, or Mexx for kids. I don't know if you can see the boys shirt in the picture below but they looked great on both of them. They were white with a blue pinstripe and an very subtle embroidered(sp) flower on the side and across the back in the same blue, perfect for a beach wedding. Good luck finding what you want.

              I swear we looked high and low, online and real stores, and finally yesterday I ran across this shirt. The color is not an exact match, BUT it is the perfect blend of the girls dresses and my dad's shirt, so it will work nicely.
              This is what we ended up getting for the boys:
              (Found at Kohl's for less than $20 on sale! Poly-blend. Also comes in brown and black)
              The shirt next to the girls dresses:

              And a closeup of the color next to the girls dress color. As close of a color match as I'm gonna find!
