Boys Clothes Take-Over

I wonder if all mums of boys ask the same thing — where are all the cool clothes for little boys? When I visit a department store to shop for my little guys, I’m inevitably disappointed. I circle around a few times trying to find the boys section. Eventually I land at two racks. With girls’ clothes crowding either side. One rack is full of licensed product and cartoon characters. The other is a sparse collection of t-shirts, jumpers, track-pants and jeans in an odd assortment of sizes (and never the sizes I need).

Fellow mothers of boys, we have been heard. Creative types have seen our need and they are ready to fill the gaps in our son’s wardrobes.

Where to buy great boys’ clothes

So many great boys clothes can be found online. Here’s a round-up of some great online stores, most of them are run by clever mums.

Cute Tees

Boys love tees and there are some super cute ones to be found at …

Sunday Soliders  surf-inspired, laid-back tees.

Ez Threads for cute and cool

Little Michael Riley for some very sweet customisation

Little Lads Clothing how cute would your little guy look in the variety lettering?

Alexis Taylor Groovy graphic tees

Project Bear For a bit of hipster giggle

 

For baby threads with a bit of attitude try ..

Romplestilts

Kapow Kids for a great range of graphic cuteness

Threads for boys for loads of awesome harem pants

Romplestilts for some unreal rompers with attitude

Sunny Afternoon an Etsy shop with cute retro prints

Krome Kids for the littlest street wear you have ever seen

Baby Bear Boutique for gorgeous little boy clothes in gorgeous, quality fabric

Littlest Sidekick clothes for foxy adventuring

Little Souls for too-cute tied dyed pieces

For the older kids who still want to look cool…

 

Paper Scissors Rock Clothing for some awesome street style – the bunny hoodies are just the thing for Easter

Little Gents Store for a great range of stylish boys wear from a variety of brands

Young Blood Apparel some of the cutest chinos you are ever going to see

Baby Dino another great range of clothes from a variety of cool brands

from Zion seriously – I’d consider breaking the shopping ban for an adult version of the onesie. The adults clothes also look amazing.

I loVe Kool for even more cool clothes collated in one space. Again, it’s worth look at the threads for ladies as well.

Kablooie Store I have a thing for patterned shorts and this site its just the ticket.

 

 

I found these great online stores via a Facebook group that brings like-minded, business mammas together. I haven’t purchased from them all and this post has not been sponsored in any way. From one mother of boys to another, I just know how tricky it can be to find something unusual. So I thought this wrap up would help us out and help families who run their own business out. I’d love to hear if you buy anything and how you (and your boys) find it.

There must be loads more little shops for little boys and I’d love you to share them in the comments.

Do you struggle finding cute and unique boys things?

      I did sew for the kids as babies and I still make the occasional pair of shorts for them, but things like shirts are a bit beyond me. Stripes always work.

    The lack of cool boys clothes in stores is such a retail fail! And it’s not in Australia, I find the same in the UK too. It’s so much easier to buy gifts for girl children than boys! I’m loving this round up though, how badass is that little dude in the sunglasses, I do totally want to be him!

    As a mother to four sons I hear your pain. When my boys were little (they are now aged between 17 and 23) there were limited trendy cool clothes to buy for them. My how times have changed now with all the cool online shops that are around. I did find that living two hours away from a city at the time also hard to purchase clothes for my boys, lucky back then party plan was huge and all us mums would hold them often. Pepito was one brand and back then Pumpkin Patch was also starting out as party plan.

      Oh wow – so you have seen the patch from beginning to end. It’s great to see the new funky boutiques but a bit sad to see Pumpkin Patch go.
