The Etsy shop is also a good way to link to the photos. Pretty much each issue has some basics. I would start with a spring/summer and a winter/fall from last year or this year. That way you have something to choose for most seasons.

Desperately trying to keep ahead of my pattern, fabric and dressform collection!
Pineapple1 (11/21/13 5:09 PM) Having just had to kit my son out in a new set of clothes for 6 to 9 month babies I couldn't help thinking I could start to make a fair amount of things now ready for his next size jump.
Given the poor choice of boy patterns I was thinking of subscribing to ottobre and maybe picking up some back issues.
I would greatly appreciate any suggestions for which back issues to get for a boy toddlers wardrobe.

Sometimes babies skip sizes. Don't get too many ahead

Most of the "baby" clothes for Ottobre don't have a lot of variation from issue to issue. If you pick up one or two issues, that will cover you on most of the basics until your son gets into toddler sizes (that's when things get more "fun" from a sewing perspective).
Just a warning from someone who just went through this--they're still growing really FAST at that age. We relied mostly on inexpensive clothes and hand-me-downs in good conditions from friends while our daughter was that young and still growing like a weed. It might not be worth the investment to sew for your son yet.
