We dedicate a lot of time talking about how to pick the perfect suit for yourself. And while most of the time that’s who you’ll be looking for, some of you who are a bit older may be interested in getting suits for your little guys. Maybe they have to go to a wedding or another special occasion. What do you do when your little guy needs a suit?
1. You’re Looking for an Off-The-Rack Fit
While you want your little guy to look good, at the end of the day, this is a suit that will (most likely) be grown out of pretty quickly. You’re likely to only get a year of use out of it depending on the age of your kid, so it’s best to find something that fits well off the rack with only the minorest of alterations. This isn’t the easiest solution, but it saves you money and the aggravation of buying a suit that will immediately go out.
2. Alternatively, Go for a Vest
A vest paired with a great set of slacks can look just as good as a full suit, and depending on the age of the boy you’re buying for, they may be able to get more use out of it. Vests can just as easily be worn to churches and upscale functions like a wedding, with the added benefit of being a smaller expense if you’re worried about him growing out of the suit too quickly.
3. Make Sure to Get Several Shirts
We say this all the time for adult men, but this applies to the soon-to-be-adult men as well. Several nice dress shirts can go further that many other accessories, particularly when you’re young and not really expected to have a fitted suit yet. These are one of the better “formal” buys you can make for someone still growing, as minus the possibility of extreme weight gain, a large dress shirt should be wearable for at least a year or two before it needs to be replaced.
All that said, if you come to Karako Suits, you’ll easily be able to find a suit that fits your little boy. We have sizes ranging from slim to husky and 8–20. We carry big designer names found in all department stores, but it’s our tailoring can help make the difference in a suit that looks great on your child. And lastly, we also rent tuxedos for that really special occasion for boys too.
Bottom Line: If you need a suit for the little guy in your life, come to Karako Suits.
