Not everyone can. For instance. Last year my dd was 5'2 and 85lbs .now she is 5'5 and 112. Yea she can't reuse. My son was 4'2 and 60lbs and now he is 4'5 and 85lbs and his pants last year was khaki have holes in thw knees. Last year both kids had uniforms neither will this year.

Shoes same thing. My sons shoes wasn't fitting him at the end of the year he was a size 2 now he is a size 4. My dd went from a size 6 to 7..

Not everyone can reuse school clothes


Edit:

My children grew out of last years shoes, and DD and DS are too tall for all of their pants now. They have to get new fall and winter clothing.

 So they gained 20 pounds in 2 months? What were they wearing when school was still in session in June?

I buy as they need but don't buy a while new wardrobe all at once. We've never had to do that.

I am thankful DD can reuse some of her school cloths from last year! She had jumpers and elastic adjustable waistband shorts we are reusing. Her shirts wer really big last year so this year they are perfect! We had to buy new shoes though.

My youngest in the span of a summer, yes THIS SUMMER, went from 5'2 (maybe 5'1) to almost 6' ... he needs a WHOLE new wardrobe.  

Used to be the oldest gave his outgrown stuff to the youngest.. In the span of 2 months it got reversed...

We spent $500 on school uniforms for one kid last year.  (They are specific plaid uniforms with a blazer that you can only purchase at ONE uniform store.) We had my daughter's skirts altered this year because I did not want to spend the money again.  It was much cheaper to let them out and drop the hem.  $10 per skirt as opposed to $50 each for new ones.

Have you asked your doctor about his weight gain? That is a really heavy 4'5.

My kids have never been able to reuse them. They wear uniforms and in August we give them back to te school who hands them out to parents who can't afford them. Works well I think
