Mothers of Boys

Tips on raising happy boys. From The Telegraph.

 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/lifestyle/11213834/How-do-you-raise-happy-boys.html

I loved this article and I'm in total agreement with the snacks, sticks, sellotape and plastic bags although I did feel a little emotional reading “A son is a son till he takes a wife, a daughter’s a daughter the rest of her life." 

My first bit advice to other, newer mothers of boys is to think of them in the same way you think of dogs: walk them at least once a day no matter what the weather, and feed them whooping great bowlfuls of food regularly and often. Then they'll be your best friends (and be less likely to tear your house apart mid-morning.)

Size Chart
**Please note, we are always happy to measure individual pieces for you.**
**Please email us directly at hello@fiveboysclothing.com**

At "Five Boys Clothing" we offer as much guidance as possible when it comes to sizing as we know that age is not an exact science when it comes to measuring for the right size clothing.

Any European brands provide a height measurement - and we always attempt to describe the fit. Please find a guide to European sizing below.

The European size is based on the actual height in centimeters, example a size 122 means 122 centimeter, that is for a child in height 122 centimeter each centimeter = 0.39 inch, each inch = 2.54 centimeters

As with all things this is not an exact science. If you normally buy big - we recommend you buy big, and vice versa.

When relevant, we identify whether products are true to size, big for size or small for size.

If you need any help regarding specific sizes please contact us at hello@fiveboysclothing.com and we'll get staright back to you.

PS: Don't forget we do offer returns so if you want to try the products we're happy to send them out to you.
