@MapleBecky:  Traditionally it’s white.  However, I’ve seen older people baptised in brown sacks (yeah, they’re hideous). 

EDIT: Google toddler or preschooler baptism outfit.  Many of the boy outfits are suits/tux.

If the child is old enough, the priest will ask the questios to the child instead of the sponsors.  I don’t think 3.5 is old enough though.  You should get more info in the baptism class.

Could he maybe wear a white shirt and vest with brown slacks? I see stuff like that at walmart a lot.

My 7yo nephew was baptised last year and he wore a white shirt and a regular tie and dress pants.  He wasn’t required to wear all white.  Congrats to your son on being baptised!

Do not postpone the baptism for the white tux, I do not think the priest will turn your son away if he is wearing black dress slacks and a dressy white shirt. All the infants I have seen baptised have worn white, but I have seen older children baptised in regular dressy church clothes (non-white).
