Sometimes finding cool boys clothes can be really hard. There are a few good pieces out there but you really have to look for them. Most of the big box stores will have one or two items that my kids deem cool enough to wear. But we just found the coolest skater style boys clothes, from an Australian brand, that my boys are totally in to.
Alphabet Soup is based out of Melbourne, Australia and is now one of my favorite kids fashion brands. There aren’t just one or two good pieces in their collection. It’s ALL good. I hate to say that this line is only boys clothes, because I believe there are rad little girls that would love some of these items too, but it’s mostly boy focused. The skater style clothes feature well designed t shirts, cool shorts and pants and accessories. If you have a skater boy in your life, you have to check out Alphabet Soup!
First off, their hang tag is a turkey leg. LOVE it! Their patterns are bold and cool. I was totally surprised when my son asked for this button up shirt. Up until this year, he was VERY particular about what he wore, but it mostly revolved around him trying to get me to let him wear those sloppy athletic shorts every day. But since he started skateboarding more this summer, and is old enough now to start understanding that there is a street culture around it, he’s been super in to skate clothing. AND he says button up shirts make him feel more dressed up. I love that he’s starting to really explore his style! Not only are these clothes well made, I love the little logo detail they work throughout their clothes. This t shirt is amazingly soft and my younger son wanted to wear it multiple days in a row. Maybe this is just a California thing but my boys think “board shorts” are different than swim trunks. They like to wear them as you would wear regular shorts. I let them, especially with these, because they are awesome. And I guess it means they are ready to dive in to a pool at a moment’s notice. Not only are the clothes awesome, but their pajamas and accessories are too! I LOVE when my son comes out in this hamburger pajama set. Plus the hats and backpacks would make a great gift item for your kids or their friends.
My oldest son is dying to wear these funky eyeballs out of the house. Good thing they have a pajama day coming up at school.
The only downside to ordering these rad skater style boys clothes is that shipping form Australia is $25. Boo. But on the positive side, our seasons are opposite. I like to look for sales on their past season items (which is the season we are just heading in to) to get a deal on the clothes that sort of makes up for the shipping costs. Or you can start a birthday t shirt tradition of buying a special shirt each year.
But if you want the coolest boys clothes, then you have to shop at Alphabet Soup.
