Cute Boys Clothes Do Exist is an ongoing series on OAC. See Wolfechild and Avarca Pons. Some readers have asked where I buy the clothes for my boys so I'm sharing that here. I don't mean to be pretentious, know-it-all, or alarmingly basic by sharing these details. Truthfully, we're often dressed as ragamuffins and just happy we make it out of the house. But I do love the hunt for great kid's clothes and I know some of you do too! Hope you enjoy.
I follow a few different people on Instragram that shared when Arq launched, include Elle of SollyBaby. I was so excited to check it out but was kind of in sticker shock. However, more and more I've been choosing to buy higher quality children's items over cheaper clothes because if they last through my five year old, then they can get re-worn two more times over the next few years as his two younger brothers grow into his old clothes. It's a win-win-win. I also like my kids more when they're wearing cute outfits so occasionally the splurge is worth it for all concerned. :)
This Fall, Arq had a huge sale on their first run of clothing, their Fall collection. Which was amaaaaazing. If I had a little girl, I would have snagged up all those little dresses so fast. So I grabbed the painter's shirt because it's basically the toddler version of a shirt Keenan owns, the Oregon flannel, two pairs of green scout shirts (because hello), boxy baby tunic top, baby track shorts (cannot WAIT to see Sigge's rolly polly-ness in those bad boys), and a light blue baggy short. Our boys wear shorts year-round so we buy lots of shorts. The prices after the sale were similar to Target. Seriously. We've already received several of the items in the mail (in sweet packaging, with a little discount code if you send some feedback) and the quality is A+. We'll see how they hold up but I'm planning to use these clothes in our family pictures in a few weeks.
Thank you, Arq! Can't wait to see what's in that winter collection around the corner.
P.S. I emailed Arq with a couple questions and received the very BEST customer service. It was delightful. Loyal customer and brand evangelist 4 ever now.
Update: Arq's winter collection is small, but as beautiful as ever.
