    How much does it cost to dress a child and where to buy clothes for schoolchildren in 2022

    Published on

    By mid-August, school chats start to come to life: class teachers send lists of necessary things to parents for the new school year. Much attention is paid to clothing: almost every city school has its own requirements for the uniform of students. The correspondent of Gazeta received the “cherished list” on August 12.

    Market

    We decided to start from the Sadovod market: several rows are allocated here for children’s clothing at once, and in August people from all over Russia come here to “get ready for school”. The range is quite large, but almost the same for all sellers. But you can dress a student on a turnkey basis: there are casual clothes, a uniform for physical education, and “ceremonial” options. Everything looks very good in the window, but on closer inspection, many things turn out to be of rather poor quality – protruding threads, crooked seams and questionable fabrics. After reading the reviews, we tried to find points with “factory Turkey”: about every third point has such signs on the “Gardener”, but the assortment in them is no different from others.

    Everything is sad with shoes – ugly, uncomfortable and expensive. The price for rather rough boots made of pressed leather is from 2.5 thousand rubles. An attempt to find a form for physical education was also unsuccessful. It is impossible to find a “no name” tracksuit on the market: either you take fake Adidas or Nike (price from 2,000 rubles), or Gucci or OffWhite (price from 5,000 rubles). It’s the same with sports shoes – fake Nikes cost 2 thousand rubles, but if you bargain hard, they’ll sell you for 1800. seams and zippers), or bulky satchels with characters from children’s cartoons. They cost from 1.5 thousand rubles.

    According to sellers, there are fewer buyers this year, although it was expected that after foreign brands left Russia, will be the opposite. At the same time, the sellers themselves are not particularly kind, especially if you are trying to bargain for 200-300 rubles. We were finally upset when one of the saleswomen said that “we arrived too late to get dressed for school.”

    “You arrived too late – you need to buy clothes for school in May. At this time, all the goods for the school come here. By August, even half of the sizes are gone, and the assortment remains small, ”she explained.

    Mass market

    After the noisy “Gardener”, the air-conditioned shopping center seems like a spa resort. We decide to start with the H&M leaving Russia, fortunately, there is no queue for entry. But, as it turned out, there is nothing to catch here: they obviously didn’t bring new school collections to the store, and the leftovers look quite sad – the assortment is small, there are practically no sizes. We leave with nothing.

    The next stop is a Russian brand of children’s clothing in the middle price segment. The school collection is quite large, the items presented are well combined with each other and, in principle, here you can collect sets for the entire academic year. Prices are comparable to market prices, but the quality is many times better – no protruding threads and “chemical” fabrics.

    Next stop – sporting goods store. The task is to find a warm suit for physical education. The choice is large, the sizes are available, however, the prices are much higher than on the market. So, a tracksuit will cost an average of 4 thousand rubles. But you can save on shoes: lightweight sneakers for indoor activities start at 999 rubles

    Premium

    Finally, we go to a multi-brand children’s clothing store with goods from Europe (mainly from Italy). Prices here are much higher than in previous points, but you can dress a schoolchild “from the needle.” Consultants try their best and select images no worse than personal stylists. The range is large, things look solid, there are models for both “too thin” and “large” children, which greatly facilitates the search for many parents. Here you can also find shoes: a pair of leather shoes will cost about 8 thousand rubles.

    And that’s without shoes. Taking into account the fact that at least two such sets are needed, it turns out not very budgetary.

    Conclusion: despite the departure of many foreign brands from the Russian market, there are enough stores where you can buy for school. But going to the market makes no sense: it will not be cheaper, and the quality leaves much to be desired. Approximately the same money can be met by purchasing from domestic brands, which this year seem to be especially trying to please schoolchildren and their parents. Multi-brand outlets with collections from European manufacturers have not gone anywhere – it’s still easy to dress a student in the latest fashion, if only there was money.
