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

Boys come in all shapes and sizes. 

We try to indicate in our product descriptions whether items are true to size or if you need to size up. Our Scandi brands go by height rather than age and we give a rough indication of the age alongside the measurement for your own guide. But you know best whether your boy is big or small. If in doubt, drop us an email hello@fiveboysclothing.com

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.

If you'd like specific measurements we're happy to provide those. Please contact us directly.
