Let’s Hear IT for the Boys!: The Boy’s Store Review and Giveaway

When I had my daughter, I was overwhelmed with the amount of “cute” options she had for clothes.  I mean, cute girls stuff was everywhere.  Then, when I had my son, I was hit with the reality that “cute” boys clothes are clearly in short supply.  I came across The Boys Store, and they had apparently heard my prayers.  This store has an amazing of stylish clothes for my little guy.  They recently sent us the Appaman Skater Pig Polo Shirt and Cargo Shorts in Robot Gray in a 2T for review.

Best dressed little man at Sea World

My little guy is 32” tall and weighs 23 pounds.  He is just moving up into a 2T in a lot brands, and the shirt fits him perfectly through the body and is slightly long.  The shirt is lightweight and perfect for these upcoming hot months.  Most of his polo shirts that he has are a much heavier cotton, so this shirt will work much better for hot summer days.    I also love that this shirt runs on the lean side, like Brendan.  So many baby shirts are “boxy”, and tend to not fit him very well.  I also love the way the seams are on this shirt–a little rough around the edges.  This gives the polo shirt a bit more of an edgy look to it. The shirt is 100% cotton and machine washable.  The shirt retails for $32, but is currently on sale on their website for $16!

The cargo shorts also fit well.  They feature an adjustable waist, and I moved it to a smaller size (5 notches in on each side).  He has lots of room to grow into these so will be able to wear them quite some time.  I love the color.  It’s so hard to find shorts for my boy that aren’t either 1) knit/athletic shorts, 2) a tan or green khaki, 3) jean shorts.  These twill cargo shorts have that khaki feel while providing a great color alternative for his wardrobe.  Although the color is listed as “robot gray”, they are actually more of a medium blue, as shown in the picture.  The shorts have a snap and zipper closure, are 100% cotton and machine washable. The shorts retail for $32.00, and are also currently on sale for $16!

I love that the site has presented their clothes with categories I wish I saw on more sites!  I first hit the “American Made” category, as I try to support local and USA-made whenever possible.

Here is a cute American-made option:

Your little guy can wear this while you and your husband are out watching the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie!  The Pirate Set by Lollybean Kid Couture retails for $40.00

They also have an “Organic” category with some great options!  You can also shop by brand, by age, and more! I love when organic clothes come in vibrant colors, such as this Safari Silhouette shirt by Imagine Greenwear, currently on their site for $30:

The Boys Store is not just about boys.  They’ve put together a great list of quality resources for parents and teachers.  But, being how it is “for the boys”, they have included some fun links just for our little men!  They also give back to their community by supporting various local organizations focused on youths.
