Now my boys are growing bigger, they are starting to develop an interest in fashion.
But at the same time they are becoming too tall for the sizes offered in kids stores.
Let me repeat that. My 10-year-old has grown out of children’s sizes!
Not all of them. But he’s 5ft 2in with size 7 feet – and in a lot of stores it’s just easier for me to buy him a “small” in mens clothing than it is to find something big enough for him in the kids section. And at just 8 years old his brother is not far behind.
Which is why I’m grateful for companies like Mainline Menswear.
I refuse to be a slave to labels – but I’ll confess we do like Superdry and Converse. I buy just one or two items for the kids to wear when we’re going somewhere nice and they want to look trendy. It’s a great place to find T-shirts, hoodies and baseball boots at reasonable prices. And the sale section also unearths a few gems at discount prices which I can add to their wardrobes.
For the men in my family, there’s a variety of lovely gifts which I know they’ll love.
Which is why I’m so excited to be able to offer my lovely readers a treat courtesy of this great website.
