How many weeks or days before school starts do you get clothes for school?

I'm curious..  We have uniforms here. Why buy new clothes for a new school year? I've always wondered that. A lot of my American friends buy new clothes for their kids with the new school year. Don't the fit their current clothes anymore?

genuinely curious :)

We pick them up gradually throughout the year. If I find a sale or something. I didn't buy her new ones specifically for school. I will buy her new tennis shoes this weekend though since her old ones seemed to have disappeared.

My girls school doesn't have uniforms. I have little ones (5 and 3) so they will not have any warm clothes for fall and winter. We live in New York so it's pretty chilly in the fall
