Is it better to have extra kacki school uniform shorts or navy school uniform shorts?

Because I bought extra school uniform shorts but don't know whether to return the 4 navy which will leave me with 3 navy and 3 kacki, or return 3 navy and 1 kacki which will leave me with 2 kacki and 4 navy. My son also has 5 kacki pants and two navy pants but I'm not sure what matches best with the shirts, hes got all the colors except for red and orange. He's in kinder and I know navy is great for winter but I'm asking about the navy shorts though and kacki shorts, thanks!

  • Our kids can wear denim, knaki or Navy so I bought 2 in each color that way I have an extra pair if for some reason laundry doesn't get done by Mon or whatever. They can wear navy, yellow, or white polos so she's got 2 in each of those as well. As long as she doesn't wear a blue shirt, with a blue skirt she's matching no matter what.

  • Well Navy can hide messes better. Knaki will stain easier... so it depends on the child, is he a neat child, or a messy child??? (I know most kids are messy, but some kids are neat freaks.) I would return the knaki if you have to return something, if not, I'd hang on to them all, that way in case something gets stained you have extra.

  • I would pick the navy. It will not show stains from ink, paint or juice drinks.

  • I would go with more khaki, but that's only because we wear the khaki bottoms with our scout uniform.

  • Do you like the way one looks more than the other? If not, have an extra pair of the navy. It hides the stains better as others have already stated.

  • I think khaki is better

  • I prefer khaki but I think that the Navy ones will stand up better under a normal kindergartner's day. I guess it matches everything because we wear blue jeans with about everything. Not quite the same but I would go with the navy ones so you don't have to buy any more in the long run.

  • And may I ask why you might ask this question anonymously? Nothing embarrassing of anything on that lines so it just does not make much sense.
