Classic Clothes for Boys from Tom & Drew

Summer Suits, Pants, and Other Basics

tom and drew boys' clothing!

Convincing your little ring bearer to wear a summer suit is like wrestling a lion cub into a pinafore.

Here to take the wrinkles out of his getting-dressed routine: Tom & Drew, a new line of preppy separates for boys. The summer collection features classic two-button blazers paired with matching pants or shorts in linen and seersucker — two materials that actually look better a little roughed up.

Add a cotton oxford and he’ll be ready to walk down the aisle — without creating a circus.

Available online at saigenicoles.com and pippenlane.com,  $60-$95.
