No tanks for boys!!

Over the weekend I went to Target to do some shopping. When I go to Target allot I took a quick stroll through the clothing department. My five year old recently got a bunch of shorts from his cousin, but he didn't get any tank tops. Well to get to the boys clothing I had to walk by the girls then go around the corner to get to the boys. For the girls there was all kinds of tanks! But when I got to the boys department there were none! Okay there was like two jersey type tanks, but they were like ten buck each, and I was looking for a couple of tanks that were like three or four dollars...

Which then made me realize what a difference there is in boys and girls as far as clothing goes. In the girls area there was plenty of cloths, but in the boys there was very minimal. I guess I never had to deal with the lack of boys clothes selection in a while...

Where do moms of boys shop for summer clothes that's not incredi

  • My two year old wears tanks. I got mine at JC Penney. If they aren't on sale, they are more than four dollars, though.
    Try K-Mart or Walmart. If you don't mind used, try a consignment store. A lot of very clean, nice clothes are there for boys.

    I agree boys don't have as much to choose from. Girls clothing departments are almost always twice as large and a "sea" of pink!

  • Children's Place has them. My mil works there and I think she mentioned that they are having a monster sale again soon, if not right now, so most likely they will be on sale.

  • I got my son a bunch from the underwear department. I also got lucky a few years ago and found a bunch of cotton tanks and sleeveless shirts on sale after summer at Kmart I think and stocked up.
