Anyone know of some brands that have long sleeves and are tight (like a pajama top). My son will only wear pajama tops and I have been searching forever for something similar so it wont look so much like he is out in his pajamas.
Although he has run around like that for almost 2 years now. But, now that he is almost 6 it is getting harder to find pajamas like that.

Thank you!

what about girls' clothes? They are usually much more 'form fitting' and closer to the body than boys' clothes are.

So, for example something like this polo shirt from The children's place doesn't scream "girl" but might have the fit that he needs.

TCP has nice cotton PJs up to size 14, so if pjs are what he needs, that's a place to start.

Have you tried rash guards? they're supposed to be form fitting, and they do make them in long-sleeve.

Nike and Under Armour and the two brands my DS has. He actually uses the shirts for soccer for under his jersey when it is cold. You should find a selection at Sport's Authority or Dick's. Regular long-sleeved rash guards should work too.

I don't know about brands, but shirts made like thermal underwear tend to be tight-fitting.

I've been ordering stuff from www.trendyblanks.com.
Specifically this stuff http://www.trendyblanks.com/American...ng-Sleeves.htm
If you order more than 36 items you can get the wholesale price, so it might be worth it to go in on some stuff with friends?

My son will only wear long sleeve shirts and pants so I've ordered almost all of his stuff from them. It's nice too!
