Men swear by River Island for jeans

We are definitely a male-dominated household with two sons aged 12 and 17 and my husband plus 2 male dogs. We had to get a female kitten to redress the balance a bit recently.

I digress from the point of this post which is to describe the various clothing choices of the male members of my family.

My youngest son is very easy to buy for and knows exactly what he likes in the style stakes. He loves Saltrock clothing in particular and likes zipped hoodies and leggings preferring to be comfy at all times.

My husband used to wear suits most of the time and my children used to despair that he never wore casual clothing. That has changed recently with him working from home and relaxing that bit more. He has suddenly started buying T-shirts with fun slogans and is more likely to buy a pair of jeans than a new suit. This is a huge change for him!

My oldest son is trying to find his own style which I guess is normal at 17 years of age. He is absolutely man-sized now however much I still see him as my little boy. He is taller than his Dad by some way now which he really enjoys  of course. He has suddenly had yet another growth spurt and I have promised to buy him some new clothing. I usually buy from George at Asda as it is quick and easy to get an online delivery. However, I have recently looked at other brands. River Island have a brilliant offer on jeans where you can get a discount if you buy two pairs and my son particularly like the Black Dean Straight Leg ones. As a mum I am delighted the jeans come in different leg lengths recognising  that men and boys do come in different shapes and sizes.

In fact, with such affordable prices which to be honest surprised me, I might add a pair or two for my husband to my next order too.

    With two boys and a husband who apparently can’t buy his own clothes 😉 this is useful. Thanks #coolmumclub

    We have just one dude in our home so teenage boys isn’t my forte! I do like to buy my hubby clothes though as he is rubbish at doing it for himself… I’ve found the fave for us to be Burtons, which we had a good laugh about because it used to be Topman but that suddenly seems way too young for him! Price, quality and fit got our thumbs up so one to look out for…

    Thanks for linking to #coolmumclub – hope he stops growing soon ha ha!
