I know clothes sizes can fluctuate so much but sheesh! My DS just turned 2 and these clothes sizes are ridiculous. He's in 3T pants and 4T shirts! He can wear a few 3T shirts but not many, the sleeves are just too short or it's too snug around the middle. His feet right now are an 8 1/2-9 but growing daily it seems.
FTR he is 35 1/2 inches tall and 33 lbs.

Shoes are a 6 or 7.
16 months, 22 lbs, I don't know how tall, wearing 2T because that is the hand-me-down for this season , but probably fits 18-24 months and 24 months clothes. SIze 6 shoes.
4 in October, wears 5T. 4T is getting short, but they are still pretty loose though she's 60th % weight for height so go figure. She's 33 lbs and 38 or 39 inches I guess. Size 9 shoes fit her with a tiny bit of room left to grow.
Age sizing is all over the place. OshKosh runs true to age for kids in the 75th to 100th percentiles... if that even makes sense.
DD is almost 3 (Oct) and wears 2T shirts/ pants but for brands that run a tad smaller (Circo, Old Navy) I get 3T but she can wear most 3T dresses, etc. For the Fall/ winter clothing I'm getting 3 & 4T shirts and 3T pants (so she'll have space to grow). She just moved into size 8 shoes. She's 35.5" and 30 lbs.
It just makes more sense to buy a tad bigger so they can wear them longer.
Shorts - 6-9 month or 12 month (no diaper and 18/24 month fall down!)
Pants - 24/2T month for length, but need adjustable waist
Shirts - 18month-2T
Shoes - Size 6 or 7

Your son sounds like DD, she's a big girl, very tall for her age. It's hard because normally the bigger sizes make clothes longer instead of increasing the waist sizes because older kids tend to be a lot longer and leaner. Well, we found one thing that worked well is buying 5T capris when it comes to blue jeans. Normal play pants fit just fine in 2T/3T with a bit of a hem but blue jeans are just two tight!
FWIW, she's 34.5 inches and 29.5 lbs.
ds1's size has always been whatever age he was. he starts to move into the next size about halfway through the year (age 4.5, in a size 4-5.) he cannot fit into anything with an X in it-maybe his brother will be able to wear those cute 3X pants i bought by accident!

Kristy, wife to Josh proud mama to Katie: since 3/08 and Emma since 8/12.
DS2: 3.5 years, 26lbs, 35in (he's my little guy). Size 2T everything. Size 5 shoe.
DS3: 11 months, 22lbs, 30in?? Size 12month everything, no shoes yet.
We are in the middle of diaper AND season transitions, so it's tough
In cloth diapers, he can wear 18-24 month sizes in shorts
In undies or sposies, he usually wears 12 months or 12-18 for shorts. Anything bigger slides off (even just the straight 18 months).
We have had to pull out some pants b/c we're in Chicago for the weeknd and the temps are in the 60s today. Anything with 18 months on the size tag is too short in the leg. But 24 months is to big in the waste... so I guess we're going to have to resign ourselves to nothing but adjustable waste pants.
shirts, he wears about an 18 months size.
shoes are size 6-7
For the record he weighs about 24 pounds and is somewhere in the range of 33" (I think, we haven't gotten a solid measure on his height in a while)
Shoes: currently a size 6
Clothes: bottoms are mostly 18-24 months, although he has a couple things from one particular brand in size 12-18 months that still fit, tops are 18 - 24 months as well
I find it funny that irl I always have people commenting on how big he is for his age (tall), yet, whenever I read things here on mdc it almost seems like he's actually small for his age.

Sizes, she's all over the map. She has some 12 month shorts she can still wear, yet she has some 3T scooters from Children's Place that are a bit long, but totally fit otherwise. I think her "real" size is probably still about 24months, but for fall I'm generally buying 2T & hoping she'll grow into it soonish. She only has 18month pants and they are almost all way too short (except the few freakish ones that never fit her last year). I think she'll still be in a diaper for a while, so hopefully that will keep the pants somewhat staying up until she gets a little bigger.
Shoe size, she's wearing a 6 now but she is definitely due for new shoes.
