John Lewis School Polo Shirts, Pack of 2, White
Not up to usual JL quality
Just five weeks into term and one of the buttons has snapped in two. No spare button was attached to the seam / label, and as the buttons used are a cheap white plastic, they do not match with any of the usual spare shirt buttons I have. So I am now faced with replacing all 3 buttons to keep a matching set.
Fabric is thin, and shirts shrank with the first wash, though I did pre-empt that by purchasing a size bigger to start with.
John Lewis - please improve the quality of this item for future seasons!

Not great quality
I have just discovered a hole in one of these shirts after only a few washes. How disappointing. I won't be purchasing replacements from John Lewis I'm afraid.

The quality of these shirts is something I would have expected from the value range. They are thin - undergarments can be seen through them. On pre-washing them ready for their first wear they have already become shapeless and are unlikely to last very long. Very disappointing and not up to the usual John Lewis standard.

Great school shirts
Much softer material than other supermarket ones and only a little more expensive, love them. It's just a shame my 6yr old trashes them with such regularity but that's not JL fault!

I had expected the usual good quality product from John Lewis but was a bit disappointed in these. Sizing is generous enough but the quality of the cotton is not reflected in the price. Seems thin and looks like it will become misshapen quickly. Sorry, JL, but your competitors that you wage price matches with do superior quality school wear!

Smary and comfortable
These T shirsts are smart and comfortable school wear. I have washed them twice and so far so good! The sizes are quite small. I ordered aged 6 for my quite big (but not enormous) 4 1/2 year old and they fit snugly - I would therefore suggest ordering one size up.

Just what I wanted
The shirts don't lose their shape after a few washes, JL quality, great value - just what I wanted.
