About Us

OUR STORY:

Five Boys Clothing is an online shop where you can find cool clothes and inspired gifts for boys.

Co-run by us, Taffeta Gray and Sophia Walsh, two old friends, whose friendship started at school many moons ago. 

 

How Did Five Boys Come To Be? 

It’s a simple story really; with five boys between us we were fed up with the lack of choice for boys’ clothing. As they have got older the problem has only got worse. We started researching independent brands and found there were so many great designs out there if you looked in the right place. So we began creating our own online shop.

Four years in we have started our own brand of t-shirts; one thing we have learnt is that our boys never have enough t-shirts! And we have introduced a present offering, things that, like our clothing, we have road tested with our boys, nephews and godsons. Our next focus will be to develop an even stronger collection for the ten to teens, our resident teen is helping us with designs!

Sophia and Taffeta met when we were 12 at school. We’ve travelled together, been through university together, become mothers of boys together!

When we started Five Boys we had five boys between us; Zebedee (14), Wilfred (11), Ferdie (8), Algy (7) and Gus (6). Not ones who shy from being busy, we now have Clemmie (4) and Hector (1) too.

 

WHAT WE SAY ABOUT OUR BUSINESS

FIVE BOYS CLOTHING is all about smashing the illusion that shopping for boys is difficult or boring.

We offer an edit of clothing that both we and our boys like.

Tried and tested by us and our pasta sauces and the tumble dryer, we only stock things we love and would be happy for them to wear or play with.  

Our clothes are chosen for boys but there is no reason why girls can’t wear them too.

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.
