The Sea Monster T-shirt is my favourite in this spring’s boy range! It’s just the right colour for my Noel, just turned 6, whose clothes begin to be magically covered in chocolate ice-cream dribblings, mud splashings and such from the moment he puts them on in the morning (sigh!) The seamonster motif is really charming – Noel already calls is his “Nessie shirt” – he likes it because it’s “cool” and I like it because the print is as good as new after quite a few washes – and because the “monster” is such a friendly smiling creature, such a refreshing change from the rather dark and depressing superhero-themed things which seem to be the fashion for little boys – and yet not too babyish for a soon-to-be first grader. (I liked the Olli Octopus shirt, too, but when I looked through the Frugi catalogue with him, he said he’d rather have the seamonster, because of the “babyish” factor I think!)
Sadly, it hasn’t been warm enough yet to put my little man into the Combat Cord Shorties, but he tried them on and looked great, it made me long for mild summer days just to look at him! So far I can say that the fit is perfect for him, and I’m glad the waist can be easily adjusted for him and that nothing’s rubbing on his skin – he’s rather on the slim side, so we usually have to adjust his trousers’ waistbands – which are, in most cases, made of elastic ribbon to be fixed with buttons on the inside – horrible, he always has thick red marks on his waist at the end of the day. Thanks, Frugi, for giving thought to such details!
Do I really have to add that both shirt and shorties are supersoft to the touch? Well then, they certainly are! 😉 I just love them!
