Yay for you that you're going through with the catholic school direction for your kids, Jen.
My boys wear blue pants and white shirts. If I were you I would start with 3 pairs of pants and 4 short sleeve and 4 long sleeved shirts and see how that works. If he can wear colors other than white, you may need fewer, but I can't imagine going with fewer than 3. My kids can't keep white shirts clean, so sometimes they have more than that. (I say "sometimes" because sometimes they manage a bunch wear out at once or they suddenly go up a size, and then we slowly build up the supply again. Right now my son insists he only has 2 short sleeve shirts,
Yes, I agree that sweatpants under a skirt would look weird.
I hadn't even considered a gym uniform!
I've heard the same thing about some schools, that it's more of a dress code than a uniform.
