Shopping for a school uniform doesn’t have to be a drag. Old Navy is changing the way kids everywhere think about traditional school attire. Their polos are tag-free and made from soft cotton fabric for optimum comfort.

Add in some style and flair with a bright pair of running shoes and an athletic-style backpack, and he won’t even remember that he’s in khakis and a polo.
