If you’ve got tall kids, you’ll know that it’s often a challenge to find clothes that fit longer bodies, arms and legs well among lots of the high street brands. At 9, Ieuan is already 4 ft 8″ and last year’s clothing already looks like it was previously worn by the Incredible Hulk and has duly shrunk several inches.
We were happy to discover that American classic brand GANT now offers a great range of classic sports and casual wear for kids and teens and Ieuan was delighted to receive a GANT Teen Boys Full Zip Hoodie to check out the sizing and quality.
The hoodie comes in three colours, Evening Blue (which Ieuan is modelling), Light Grey Melange and Port Red, all of which go with pretty much anything and are great to throw over jeans and t-shirts when rushing out of the door. I have given up trying to get Ieuan to wear jumpers but he’ll happily wear a hoodie everywhere. He’d wear it to school if they’d let him!
Sizing goes by height which makes things a lot simpler. Ieuan is wearing the 146/152 size which fits him perfectly. He’s a tall lad for his age (9) and needs the extra length in body and sleeves.
The hoodie is made out of cotton blend jersey, has a lined hood and a full-zip front. There’s a split kangaroo pocket and the cuffs and hem are ribbed. Ieuan particularly likes the collegiate felt GANT logo on the chest.
This GANT boys hoodie is roomy and comfortable and he hasn’t really taken it off. I’m happy because I know I’ll get at least a year or so’s wear out of this and it’s washable with care.
GANT has a great kids’ and teen range with a collection of wearable, comfy basics all with the cool GANT logo. Caitlin has her eye on this GANT Teen Girls Lightweight Puffa Jacket in a gorgeous raspberry red.
We think it’s a range that’s definitely worth checking out.
