A Stitch in Timeless

ryder and james!

Mini harem pants. Baby bangles. Pint-size jeggings. Some fashion trends aren’t meant to be followed (let alone passed down).

Stick with vintage-inspired classics from newcomer Ryder & James’s spring/summer collection. Founded by pals Jeeun Kim and Aussy Manuhu, the up-and-coming label excels at comfy, well-made clothes for boys ages 2-14.

Easy, beachy pieces include nautically striped surf trunks and hoodies, rumpled plaid button-downs, and sailor pants with a charming drop seat. Oxford shirts and two-button blazers lend just a touch of prep.

Without going overboard.

Available later this week at Honeys & Heroes, 3366 Sacramento Street, between Walnut and Presidio Streets (415-567-6780 or honeysandheroes.com); 855 El Camino Real, Town and Country Village, suite 120, Palo Alto (650-326-1899); Swing, 467 Magnolia Avenue, between Cane and Ward Streets, Larkspur (415-924-2500).
