If purchasing boys clothing there are some things to keep in mind. It should be tough and durable but also be made so that the child in question will be willing to wear it. Avoid anything too fancy or with bright colors that might not go over well.
Jeans are always fashionable and are great for boys so buying lots of them is usually a good idea. Basic colors like blue and black are good and always in season unlike fashion colors that may go out of style. Try and keep some khaki's on hand for special events like dinners or parties.
Footwear can usually be summed up in two words:Tennis shoes. Reebok and Nike are both good brands and should go with almost any casual outfits. For hot summer days a pair of sandals or flip flops can work wonders. Do not forget boots, essential for playing in the snow or going sledding in the winter.
When looking for tops for boys clothing try and find t-shirts, both in solid colors and with cartoons or funny sayings, sports teams, or cartoons that the boy enjoys. Sweatshirts are a good choice for the fall and winter months. For hooded ones Nike and Champion both have high quality models. When slightly more formal attire is required polo shirts or button down ones should do the trick.
For Winter gear be sure to get a coat with a removable liner. You can add it on the really chilly days and take it out when the weather starts to warm up. A hat and gloves are crucial too to stay warm. When you go shopping writing everything down beforehand ensures you do not forget anything and may help with over purchasing.
Usually boys clothing will be handed down to next youngest child or given away to some other family members. If you have other children that will be wearing the clothes as the current grows out of them, be sure to keep this in mind and help keep your future costs for clothes down.
