Question over on Formspring:
Hi Drew. Where do you do most of your shopping for Brayden’s clothes? I have a 10 month old little boy and I’m always looking for great places to find clothes. And B always looks super cute in your photos.
Thanks! Boys clothes are so hard to find, aren’t they? And then you buy them a cute outfit and they go and spill all over it or play in the dirt! Boys!
Brayden pretty much wears two brands – Paul Frank and Quiksilver. Most of his Paul Frank shirts and sweatshirts are from Target. I love that they started carrying Paul Frank. I’m not too impressed by the quality of the expensive Paul Frank clothes. It seems like they are always getting holes. So, I’m very happy to pay $6.99 for a t-shirt that he’ll wear for a couple of months. Yeah, they fade pretty bad over time. But, the boy grows like a weed so by the time they are unwearable he’s grown out of them anyway!
Most of B’s pants and shorts are from Quiksilver. If you’re lucky you can sometimes score Quiksilver from Nordstrom Rack. We have a Quiksilver store in Downtown Disney and if you’re an annual pass holder they sometimes have special sales of 10 or 20 percent off! I love the quality of Quiksilver. It holds up really well. And I’m a huge dork, but I like to buy Brayden and Chuck matching clothes. I know. Dorky. But, Quiksilver is the only brand I’ve found that has a few items in men’s sizes and infant / toddler sizes. The look so cute all matchy, matchy!
Lately I’ve also been loving Penguin. I’ve always liked Penguin for Chuck, but they recently started carrying baby and kids clothes (or maybe I just realized that they did!). They only have a few stores nation wide (one at Fashion Island if you’re local), and they usually have great sales in store. They have a website, but it doesn’t look like they carry their kids clothes online. Boo!
If I find cute clothes on sale I buy it even if it’s too big. I’m always buying Paul Frank shirts from Target because they get picked over so fast. If I’m there and they have a new style I grab it! Who am I kidding? I’m at Target like 3 times a week so I always get the new styles 🙂
Not my fav pic ever, but my boys sporting their Penguin polos on Mother’s Day!
