Back to School With Matalan {Review}

As September gets ever closer and the day Charles starts big boy school comes gradually into sight we are constantly adding to our school uniform collection. Our most recent items are some essential pieces from Matalan.
Matalan - Women's Clothing, Men's, Children's, Homeware
We were sent:
A pack of 3 polo shirts (£4.00-£5.50)
Pack of 2 pull on trousers (£6.00-£8.00)
1 pair of pull on trousers (£4.50-£6.50)
Pack of 5 socks (£2.50)
2 pairs of football shorts (£3.50-£4.50)
Plimsolls (£2.50)

We found the fit to be perfect on all of the items, other than the trousers, thanks to him being so slim, although thanks to an adjustable waistband we are able to make these fit perfectly.
The length of the trousers is quite long, but this is easily rectified with the use of wonder-web and will also last Charles a few years as we can let the hem down as he grows.
The football shorts are also perfect. The length is just what he needs and will last him 2 or 3 years with the drawstring waist.
The plimsolls are comfortable, well made and easy for children to put on and take off thanks to the velcro fastening.

We actually visited Matalan again after receiving our parcel to buy a few extra tshirts and socks as we are so impressed with the quality.
We were absolutely amazing by the range of uniform items in store. If you are shopping for a girl this is the place to go! They have every dress style and skirt style available. Every colour of school sweatshirt (something we didn't need but would have purchased from there if we did) and cardigan, PE bags and school shoes.
We love that we can buy every item in one place.

We were sent these items for the purpose of this review. Thank you Matalan.
