Boy Brands We Keep Going Back To

February 10, 2015

Boys are tough.

Well, not exactly….in fact Mom’s often tell us that boys are easier to raise than girls.

In fact the mom’s who come into our ADRIAN EAST stores are forever extolling the virtues of their little boys; telling us there’s nothing like that special hug or kiss between their baby or toddler boy and his Mom.

We get it. We understand.

What we are referring to with the statement that these adorable beings are tough is that …well, in terms of dressing little boys – we find it more difficult to source the perfect selections than we do with our girl's choices.

Boys are tough because:

  • It’s difficult to pick the perfect selection.   While we LOVE to keep little baby boys in “baby” clothes as opposed to “little men” styles, we need to respond to our customer’s desires.  Consequently, we stock both looks.  We LOVE the way Little Threads  and Anavini do “baby boy”, the  smocked looks and the like, AND  we love the way Spanish brand Mayoral does “little man” looks.  We carry both.

…and we ALSO Love the way Mayoral does “Little Man” looks

Boys are tough because:

  • Preppy and Hip,  Street-Smart looks are key, so again, we must carry both.  In terms of preppy, we LOVE Eland kids.  We think the quality of the khakis and polos is better than Ralph Lauren or Tommy Hilfiger put together.  Not to mention the fact that we LOVE LOVE LOVE the narrow cut of their pants as it creates a nice crisp look instead of looking too baggy and/or sloppy.

  • For looks that are more fashion-forward, we love the hip styles of Scotch Shrunk and, when our budget allows, also love IKKS.

Boys are tough because:

  • It’s difficult to find looks that look nice and are as comfortable as our adorable tumbling toddlers want.  Why do boys today NOT want to wear collars?? We don’t understand.  But, when comfort is key, we go to Florence Eiseman  and Kissy Kissy for their stretch knit rompers.

 

Boys may be tough..but we LOVE them!  We know they're definitely  worth the hoops we jump through to keep them in fun, fashionable clothing!
