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.
