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; Zebedee who is now 14, Wilfred who is 10, Algy and Ferdie are both 7 and Gus is 5. Since then we have welcomed Clemmie who is 3 and Hector who will be one in August!

 

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.

 

  

 

 

 Five Boys Clothing has been online since July 2014

Size Chart
**Please note, we are always happy to measure individual pieces for you.**
**Please email us directly at hello@fiveboysclothing.com**

At "Five Boys Clothing" we offer as much guidance as possible when it comes to sizing as we know that age is not an exact science when it comes to measuring for the right size clothing.

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 each centimeter = 0.39 inch, each inch = 2.54 centimeters

As with all things this is not an exact science. If you normally buy big - we recommend you buy big, and vice versa.

When relevant, we identify whether products are true to size, big for size or small for size.

If you need any help regarding specific sizes please contact us at hello@fiveboysclothing.com and we'll get staright back to you.

PS: Don't forget we do offer returns so if you want to try the products we're happy to send them out to you.
