Does anyone else notice the abundance of cute little frilly dresses and stuff for girls, but there's less than half of that amount for boys? It's so frustrating! My son has almost every outfit from Wal-Mart, lol! And the shoes! 15 different kinds of shoes for girls, but only like 3 sneakers for boys! Where do y'all get your boy clothes?

Target has very cute boy clothes and a good selection of them. They also have pretty good prices, and Old Navy is a great place for boy clothes too...

etsy.com/shop/PocketThreads has some cute personalized embroidered baby onesies and toddler shirts! Also they take custom orders so you can ask for anything you would like to be embroidered and any color you would like it to be on baby onesies and toddler shirts!

P.S. from Aeropostale would be my top answer, however, they are not el-cheapo. If you prefer great quality over a cheapo price and bad quality like me, that's definitely where you'd want to go. I do also like abercrombie kids, but I find the preppy style better for girls. 77 kids is nice too. I guess Old Navy and Gap is good too.

There are a bazillion places to buy the most adorable boy clothes. I am the queen of it having 3 boys and another on the way.

Children's Place, Baby Gap, Sears, E-bay, on-line boutique shops.

I literally have the most adorable and cutest clothes for my boys. I would put them up against any little girl any day.

I have an absolute thing about clothes. Also my son has a pair of crocs, 2 pairs of name brand sneakers, a pair of sandals, 3 pairs of dress shoes, pair of work boots, pair of winter boots and slippers.

I completely agree. Also I find that the boys clothes are so grown up! Girls have cute clothes with frills, and cute designs like flowers and butterflies. Boys have skulls, and moterbikes etc. Most of my sons clothes are designs my husband would wear! It's so frustrating. I was designs like puppy dogs and dinosaurs and trains etc. Cute boys clothes are hard to find and I refuse to dress my boys in clothing that is too grown up.

It does not get better. I found it extremely hard to find boys clothes. When my son was about 2-4, I kept him in sweat suits and sneakers,(unless it was a formal affair). He is eleven now and picks out his own clothes.

I have 3 boys and buy all there pants at Sears because of there kid advantage club. My boys are hard on their pants and get holes in the knees quickly and at Sears if you are apart of the kid advantage club (which is free) all you have to do is bring the pants back in with the receipt and you get a new pair the same size for free!! Shirts I like Target, Tillys, Macys, and sometimes Old Navy.

Target, Old Navy and The Children's Place are the best places to shop. And their prices are very comparable to Walmart. If you sign up your email with The Children's Place and Old Navy they are forever sending coupons which makes it even better. Plus their clothes just seem to last longer. In the end when you get rid of them (garage sale/ebay/whatever method you choose) people are more likely to pick up the name brands then the Walmart stuff.

I have a hard time finding clothes at WalMart or K Mart. I usually go to Children's Place,Old Navy, or Baby Gap if I can find a good sale. Carter's is awesome!! Target is great! I also like Jc Penney as well. Here in Vegas we have a Saver's...it is like a GoodWill. I have found TONS of brand name items like Gao, Old Navy, Osh Kosk, Spockets etc there for just $2-$5....in GREAT condition!

gently used. :) no my son mostly just wears his diaper until we go out then it's a cute polo type onsie that was like 3 dollars. My plan includes a bunch of onsies and a local fabric/ craft store, If you can dream it up there is a way to make it.

I have noticed the same thing and if frustrates the heck out of me. There are rows and rows of girlie frilly things and then two or three racks for boys in Target. The Gap has a few things and Old Navy does but too. I tried clothes from the Children's Place and the first time I washed them (as directed) they faded and shrank. Try consignment shops. JC Penny has some ok clothes for boys. Dillard's has some good clothes and occasionally you can get them for a decent price when they are having a sale.

If you are wanting cheap, go to garage sales, Goodwill, Salvation Army, and to friends. If you have any friends that are done having kids but still have the clothes, buy they for cheap off your friends so that they get them off their hands or borrow them. I've heard of moms that switch their kids clothes in a small group of women. This seems to happen at my church a lot. Some one gets pregnant or has a baby and every one is just like, "Do you need some clothes? I have...."

I have found that yard sales are the BEST places to find things. My mom and I have found sooooo many things for my son. He is 5 now, so he basically wears jeans and tee shirts. But he loves button downs and collars. We have gone to places that buy the super expensive brand names. We got him Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, and many other brand names for a quarter a piece. As for shoes, I got him a pair of Vans for .50 at a yard sale as well...barely used. I also go to salvation army and thrift shops. As a single mom, I have to work on a budget. Hope this helps some!

Well I'm glad it wasn't just me that's noticed this. I can't tell you how many times I've thought to myself or said outloud that places don't seem to like little boys very much. It's very frustrating trying to find cute clothes/shoes anywhere(but there's always alot of toys for boys Go figure)

Hi Nicole



It's the same in the UK, plus I've noticed when sales are on, theres loads of stuff for girls and next to nothing for boys. I find it especially hard to find nice shoes. The first 2 pairs of shoes I bought were exactly the same just a different size due to the lack of choice!!! I'll just have to keep exploring the shops...................

I have absolutely noticed this! They have like 3 aisles of girl stuff and only half an aisle for the boys. They think boys don't need clothes or something? Like baby girls spit up all over their outfits but boys don't? Ha!

everyone has said it to me! I usually shop online but when I look at the big difference in the amount of boys to girls cloths boys have barely anything. Maybe a horrible dull coloured stripy vest thats it. My mum always is shopping and mentioned i the shops there is nothing really for boys.
take it your in America? same here in UK.

I'm with ya on this! Makes me so mad that 'they' think that the only thing I want to dress my son in is jeans and t-shirts. When he was younger I could find a few cute things. Like just yesterday, I was looking and found the CUTEST little romper....the biggest they had...a 12 months. You jump to 18 or 24 months...jean shorts and a t-shirt. And i don't want to spend a lot...he out grows it WAY too fast.

I have found JC Penney has a good variety and they are always having sales. Tee shirts for 3 or 4 bucks, you can't beat that! and Targets clothes hold up pretty well, the selection slims down after size 4 though.

Absolutely! Even then when my oldest was born 17 years ago, it was frustrated! I had to buy his clothes at Osh Kosh B'gosh and Walmart! It was even worse with my youngest son, since he was 12 lbs and 22 inches long when he was born and could only fit year-old clothes but too long for him! It was tough! There were not a lot of variety to choose from either. I had to put him in onesies and then sweats. lol
