When buying boys ’ shirts, think about having different t – shirts or casual shirts, a few collared shirts, and a couple of button – down shirts. Of course, parents need to consider how often they want or are able to do laundry, and how often boys are required to wear something nicer than a t-shirt. For example, for boys who are part of a church choir or who attend a school that requires uniforms, parents may want to buy a few more collared shirts. Keep in mind that children are natural at being be messy, so anticipate that they will spill chocolate milk on themselves or will forgo using napkins in favor of wiping their hands and mouths on their shirts. White shirts, of course, will show stains more easily, while darker colors or graphic t-shirts will do a better job of camouflaging stains.
Choosing clothes for boys may seem easier than for girls… but it isn’t! This guide has its aim at helping any parent to find a perfect understanding on what to take into account to speed this painful and long process up!
Buying boys’ shorts, pants, and jeans can be a particular challenge because while boys’ legs may grow at one rate, their bodies may grow at a slower or faster rate. As a result, pants may turn out to be too long or too short. Many clothing companies have recognized this issue, and in addition to offering slim, regular, and husky sizes, some companies also include elastic or adjustable waistbands in their shorts and pants. In addition to simply rolling up a boy’s pant legs if the pants are too long, parents can now adjust the waistband and thereby extend the life of the shorts and pants they buy for their sons. When buying shorts, jeans, or pants for boys, look for durable fabric and pockets, such as cargo pants and jeans, both of which are perfect for everyday use. Boys may also need a pair of dressier pants, such as khakis, as well as a brown belt to help keep those pants up
Sweatshirts, Sweaters, and Vests
Boys should have a couple of sweatshirts, which can be a perfect layer for a chilly summer evening or for playing in piles of leaves in the fall. For younger boys, hooded or pull-over sweatshirts will be easier to deal with than zip – up sweatshirts; plus, pull-over sweatshirts are more likely to stay on while boys are running around. Boys should also have a couple of sweaters, varying depending on the weather type of the area in which they live. For colder climates, boys may need a couple of warm wool sweaters. Monochromatic sweaters, as opposed to those with complicated patterns, may be more appealing and more versatile. For certain occasions, such as holidays, boys can wear a sweater vest with a button-down and a pair of khakis.
