As if anyone could knowingly commit sin without being changed both in spirit, body, and mind. Let me say this again, sin changes who we are! -james12
We cannot become like God without becoming like God. -The Folk Prophet
Impenetrability! That's what I say!

Call the temple and ask. Ask your RS President or the Bishop's wife.
Having said all that.....here are two sites that are usually helpful:
LDS Temple Clothing | Mormon Temple Clothes | Temple Wedding Dresses
The boys shirts can be bought at any department store or Walmart/Target. Just white shirts with white buttons. Pants for boys and men are harder to find so the Distribution Center is usually easiest and best price.
Keep in mind that the clothing will probably not be worn again until they have outgrown it. Your 6'5" son might be different. How close to missionary age is he and is he planning on going on a mission? If so, you might want to purchase this white pants now. He will need them on his mission.
Addition: colors on tags are not an issue. A small logo on the top of white socks is not an issue either (Walmart/Kmart/Target socks work well).

WE are the music-makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams,Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams:Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world for ever, it seems.
Arthur O'Shaughnessy. 1844–1881

This is what I have:
*a white baptism dress with some beading. short sleeve but not a tiny short sleave. tea length. It is a gorgeous dress and I'd love to use it!
*white church shirts
*white ties (no sure why but we have white ties)
*white sweaters for girls that we use in the chilly spring for church. All white with no designs or things on them.
Is the dress for you or your young daughter? If it is for you, you will not be able to wear that in the temple. Your dress will need to cover your chest completely (up to your collar bones), sleeves to your wrist and length to your ankles. You could wear something to cover your chest and arms (such as a sweater), but that dress would be too short for you.
I think (but I could be wrong on this), if the dress is for your daughter, then she can wear it. I don't think the length (as long as it is modest) matters for a child.
The white sweaters would be perfect for the temple. The white shirts and ties would be fine to use as well. Although I don't think white ties are required for temple wear.
