With 5 boys between Taffeta and her friend Sophia, they were frustrated by the lack of decent, fun clothing for boys, free from ubiquitous logos and cartoon characters. They set about curating their own unique and easy-to wear collection for boys and launched Five Boys Clothing in July 2014.
The styles range from cool to classic, appealing to sons and mothers alike, with easy fits – so boys can be boys! Their boys are now three through to 12 but they cater for boys as old as 15 as they felt that the UK high street really fails when it comes to that difficult to dress ‘tween’ age.
Lots of cool items – below are a couple of my favorites and a chance to win a cracking pair of swimming shorts!
