THE SHIRT EVERY
BOY NEEDS

Cool, comfortable, warm, smart… never underestimate the power (and practicality) of a great shirt

Shirts for boys are often placed in the ‘save for smart’ category, to be pulled out every so often when an occasion demands. But to me, shirts are supremely practical for every day. Way less bulky to carry around than a sweatshirt, they add a quick and easy layer of warmth over a T-shirt, particularly handy in autumn when a sudden chill can hit even on the sunniest of days. And because these shirts are 100% cotton, they’re soft, which means you’ll get no complaints on the comfort factor. There’s just one decision to make: blue, red or yellow?
Go red   Go yellow   Go blue

“Don’t just save these AWESOME
shirts for the boys – girls look
great in them too”
