    Default "... I put away childish things..." (the kids' clothes thread)



    I know it's wrong spending big money on little things for children when they'll grow out of them when they've hardly worn them, but it isn't easy to resist.
    To provide some light relief from the heavy Belgian-Japanese menswear emphasis here, I thought maybe people with kids might like to share their good finds, recent purchases etc etc.
    This is a nice site:

    And they even have baby-sized versions of Pia Wallen's beautfiul felt slippers:

    I have a (almost) 3yr old daughter. While we (mostly my wife)
    tend to buy better quality clothes made by European labels (Charabia,
    IKKS, Microbe, etc.)... we never pay the crazy prices. If you are savvy
    you can find good clothes much cheaper than Gap - even designer clothes
    (for example a dries van noten girl's blouse in immaculate condition
    was just sold on ebay for $13). I definitely would never pay the
    Madison Ave. prices - that whole scene is an incredible turn off.

    I know! baby shoes are impractical because they never stay on, but you have to admit they're cute.



    Faust, I agree that the posh childrens' clothes market is gross and designer clothes for kids don't interest me much. The whole quality fabrics for mini people scene is pretty silly too, but... check out these Danish raw woolens for babies (from www.lanacare.com)...

    a poster on supertalk bought his little girl a pair of samurai jeans (a high-quality japanese denim brand). most people that buy these jeans are interested in breaking them in and producing a great fade- his daughter did it better than most adults!

    Here's the pic from the link above (hope that's OK to do)





    That is impressive work she's put in on that raw denim. I kind of like her sneakers too. Wonder if they do them in grown-up sizes.



    <edit> much as I hate to be cynical, I'm now slightly doubting the authenticity of this as evidence of the rough-riding lifestyle lived by three-year-old girls in Wisconsin. Look at the heavy knee-wear... is it high enough to be from her own knees? Someone please restore my faith!

    haha, of course they do them in grown-up sizes- the kids sizes is the odd thing.



    well, they don't look sanded and who else could fit into kids jeans?

    Actually, those are Earnest Sewns, so they're pre-distressed (over 16+ hours of treatments).



    Man,
    if that kid could produce wear like that on heavyweight selvedge denim,
    I'd send them my APC's pronto (which still don't look very much used
    after a year of on-and-off wear)...

    oops. you're right. another poster did buy his child a pair of samurai's though. i forgot who, i just assumed since i didn't think many people bought their kids premium denim. thanks for the correction!

    You'd be surprised (well, I certainly was) how awesome Gap Kids can be. I bought this for my daughter, she looks just stunning in it.

    let us raise a toast to ancient cotton, rotten voile, gloomy silk, slick carf, decayed goat, inflamed ram, sooty nelton, stifling silk, lazy sheep, bone-dry broad & skinny baffalo.

    we stick to gap kids, children's place, imps and elfs and targhey for knock-around clothes. i'd rather save for their future and i have 3 rugged boys.

    but, that said, i spend a lot on my oldest son's stuff (or at least have) as it will get worn by the next 2. he has a great leather jacket, a few pair of apcs, lots of doc martens and a stone island coat. not as big a deal with all the hand me down potential.

    when i see these manhattanite kids of privilege dressed in burberry, i tell my kids to go jack them, brooklyn style.
