Polo Shirt with zip

AliciaAlicia Member Posts: 2
Hi everyone, we have had a call from a parent with a 12 year old son with Downs and issues with buttons. She is looking for a polo shirt with a half zip at the neck. She used to get them from Next but they are not doing them any more. Does anyone know who else might do them?

Thanks in advance for you help :-)

    Penny Austin via Facebook suggests it would be much easier (and cheaper) to take off the buttons and replace with a bit of popper tape - the stuff you get on the bottom of duvet covers. Or sew on velcro (the sticky stuff is rubbish btw)

    Just sent a load of brand new ones of these off to charity as we had same issues & I'd bought in bulk when in primary. Bhs used to do them with no buttons or zips. Also found a few in various cheaper shops eg primark & peacocks. We still ha
    ve issues but my 12 year old actually wore a shirt to school last year, but it did take OT 12 years to get him to do it. He still will not anything else with buttons on especially trousers with the adjustable waist with buttons on inside & I'm having to get them custom made now.
