The boys have been in school for a few weeks already, and recently Nano-tex sent us a sampling of Gymboree clothes to put to the test. These clothes are play proof, and stain and wrinkle resistant. When I removed them from the box, I could immediately tell from the softness and feel of the pants that they were high quality.
In addition, they had the most important feature for my three skinny boys - internal waist adjusters. If pants or shorts don't have these, my boys cannot wear them. They are just very slender.
The boys attend public school, so they don't have uniforms, but they were so excited to get dressed up "like Dad" to go to school. I told them not to worry about getting their new clothes dirty - that we were testing them out.
They looked really spiffy in their outfits. They loved having belts to wear with their pants. See Cort giving the thumbs up?
Sadly, Pierce got a little dirty climbing on the fence. I told him not to worry about it. We'd let that stain sit all day long and see what happened.
He also got some on his shirt. I was a little worried about these white shirts. My boys can really do a number throughout the day on a white shirt. To be truthful - I just don't buy white shirts because of that!
Do you know what? Every single stain came out. Even the ones that had been on the fabric all day long. They looked brand new. Just the sort of clothes you can pass down to younger kids (even with boys who are tough on clothes, like my three). I think they will hold up well over time.
Call me impressed! If you're looking for a play friendly nice outfit for your children, check out the Nano-Tex line from Gymboree.
