The Boy's Store - Review & Giveaway

I have four girls and it's pretty easy to find clothes for them. I can go to a number of stores or online sites and order what I need for my girls. It's a different story with my two boys. They were easy to shop for when they were babies and toddlers. The selection available for those life stages is fairly easy to find. As the boys have gotten older, however, it has been somewhat of a chore trying to find trendy, affordable clothing that can't be found just anywhere. I also need clothes that are made of quality material to last through their roughness.

Imagine my excitement when I found out about an online store that sells clothing and accessories exclusively for boys. Have a newborn boy? They've got clothing for that. A toddler? Clothing for that too. A Preteen? Yep, clothing for them too. The Boy's Store sells boys' clothing and accessories for newborns to size 18 juniors.

I received two shirts for review. One was the Roadie Twofer by Wes and Willy. It is a black and red long sleeve shirt with an appliqued "Roadie" patch. My 10 year old son is a fan of this shirt. Not only is it comfortable, but he also likes the rocker look of it. He says it is one of his favorite shirts now.

My 11 year old son has taken to this bowling shirt that I received. It is no longer in stock at The Boy's Store, but there are lots of other designs and styles available for purchase. The shirts the boys received help keep them warm and they are comfortable against the skin.

The Boy's Store has recently revamped their look. So even if you were a customer or have seen the site before, be sure to check it out again because they've got a whole new look. You can shop by brand, age, organic material, and more. By joining The Boy's Store mailing list you will be entered in a monthly drawing for a $25 gift certificate and find out about the "Monthly Specials".

Win It!
Two people will win a t-shirt (short or long sleeve) of choice from The Boy's Store.

I learned in the shopping tips that "Most of the products at the Boy’s Store are 100% cotton and pre-shrunk, so they should not change their shape or be become scratchy and rough."

Have you tried garage saling for boys clothes? Nearly impossible! I would choose the Loud & Proud shirt since my 6 yr old got a very used drum set for Christmas and our friends encouraged him to play loudly!

I'd pick the Electric Guitars Shirt by CR Sport so I can make my nephew grow up to be a rock star LOL

Terri said...

But since my nephew wants to be an athlete I'd like this for him Letterman Jacket with Sports Patches by Up and Away

Terri said...

I learned from the shopping tips that they carry larger sizes which is good to know since my nephew is almost at that point where available sizes won't fit him anymore
