    I basically have a year and 8 months to find a suit with all the accessories that are specifically Disney themed for my son's 5th birthday and my 7th anniversary. Does anyone know where i can find dress clothes that are themed that way?

    Hi Walter,

    I've been with the Moms Panel for more than six years and this is the first time I've seen a guest ask something like this. Thanks for asking such an interesting question.

    Let's start with the small stuff. I've often seen Disney-themed men's ties, bow ties, and pocket squares. There are a few to be found on Amazon.com (search "Disney tie"). There are also many versions for sale in the Disney theme parks. You can contact the Disney merchandise department at 407-363-6200 or wdw.mail.order@disneyworld.com. They can help you track down a specific theme or character. There are also men's dress shirts sold in the parks that have a small Mickey Mouse logo embroidered on the pocket. And there are many Hawaiian-style shirts with Disney characters. Again, ask the merchandise department for help with this. You may be able to find vintage versions on eBay.

    If you're looking for dress-up clothes, then try one of the many online costume retailers. For example, costumesupercenter.com has men's costumes for Mickey Mouse, Jack Sparrow, Buzz Lightyear, Prince Charming and more. The Prince Charming one is the most suit-like. The independent website themeparkconnection.com often has decommissioned actual cast member costumes for sale, so you could look like you worked in the parks.

    While I LOVE this idea, I've never seen an actual men's dress suit with Disney themeing. The only thing I can think of is to have one custom made for you. I know there is at least one Etsy.com seller who specializes in a Disney-themed men's jacket. Check out the Etsy shop of Petiteleon. She makes and hand paints suit jackets to look like Bert from Mary Poppins. Maybe she or another seller would take on a custom job. Many large fabric stores sell Disney patterned yardage, perhaps this is another place to start.

    PLEASE check back with me from time to time. I love your Disney spirit and am dying to know what you come up with.
