Thomas, who is 6, was absolutely delighted with his Pirate Jack Jeans and Sea Shanty Hooded Top. They arrived just before a friends birthday party and so he was very pleased to be able to wear them for the first time to the party.
The blue jeans are beautifully soft and the elasticated waist band means that they would fit most children. Thomas’ favourite feature of the jeans is the skull and cross bones embroidered on the back pocket and I like the “we love frugi” stamped on the button. I think that the jeans could be worn for virtually any occasion and would please younger and older boys alike.
The hooded pirate/sea monster top is also gorgeous. I love the colours in the top, they are not really bright colours like a lot of older boys clothes are, but are more muted and the pirate boat and sea monsters on the top make it really fun and appeal to children, but the pictures are subtle and don’t completely dominate the top. The top is a lovely weight too, it is relatively lightweight so will be good in warmer weather, but it has the full length sleeves so will be useful for an English summer and to wear abroad in the evenings when it is slightly cooler or there is a breeze.
One useful feature of the top is the press studs at the neck giving the top a wide opening and making it easy to put on and take off. Good for boys with limited patience! Perhaps the only downside to the top is that it is relatively closely fitting so if your child had a very big frame it might not be the best choice. I would say that Thomas is an “average” build and it fits him beautifully.
Thomas thinks the top and jeans are fantastic and has worn them most days since he got them – both have washed beautifully. Definite hits.
