When Woody brought home the packet for school picture day, I sighed. The boring boys clothes issue smacked me in the face again. But I went out like I do every year, eternally optimistic, searching for something bright and fun for his school pictures. After several hours at the local mall and numerous stores, I found one polo in a relatively vivid color. Relatively, I said. It would have to do. I was tired.
It's only gotten worse as the boys have gotten older. Although it makes shopping for them simple - between the jeans, polo shirts and tshirts, there's not much worry about matching - it's so uninteresting. What's worse, since these drab clothes are all that's out there, and they want to fit in, the boys won't even wear the brighter, more interesting color combinations when I do find them (and even though they generally look better in them).
I can't be the only mom put off by the state of boys clothes, can I? And it's not like men's clothes are as boring, comparatively. They aren't! My husband wears some great colors and interesting prints; there is variation in his wardrobe.
So, boys clothing manufacturers, What gives? Yes, I'm still buying the clothes, even though I hate them. I guess that it part of the problem - manufacturers aren't getting a strong enough message from consumers because the clothes still sell. My boys still need clothes, and I plain don't have the time to make them myself.
