It’s suit season and no we do not mean swim! With Summer comes loads of special parties and events so make sure you shop for the perfect fitting suit for your little man. Appaman’s Mod Suit is available in an array of colors, has a well tailored sleek fit and can be worn and re-worn over and over by styling it differently each time. For this scene we have classically styled it with an essential white dress shirt (we love Crewcuts Thompson shirt), Appaman signature logo tie, added in freshly picked flowers for the chest pocket and allowed for super comfy Vans footwear. *providing they are clean & relatively new, sneakers are an okay choice for almost all events these days. For a less fancy affair, try this same suit with a solid or interesting (not tacky) graphic tee. And when casual cool is called upon, trade in the suit pants for raw denim jeans rolled up with a nice pair of wingtips (we love Crewcuts Classic Wingtips). For sizing reference, Wynn is 4’3 62lbs and is wearing size 8 Appaman perfectly. Do not buy big, do not size up, this is the number one taboo in the world of suit wearing. Suits should be sleek and well fitting and if you style it in more ways than one, a suit will end up being your best kids closet investment!

It is without a doubt, a difficult process when selecting a suit for young boys. First and foremost is the comfort factor heavily followed by the fit.
Freshly launched for Spring16 comes NY-based, T.O. Collection with an amazing array of suits offered in a multitude of easy to wear, high fashion colors in fabrics that are soft and silky with an impeccably tailored fit. With five children of their own, the designers behind T.O. Collection certainly understand boys fashion and “get it” when it comes to what children will or will not wear. Wynn is of no exception so I am extremely pleased to report that both of these suits met his “Cool, Calm & Collected” criteria with ease!
An important aspect to remember when selecting a suit for your son (or daughter since girls look absolutely adorable in them), is the fit. Resist the urge to buy big so “they grow into it”, this only results in a frumpy old man look – far from what you should be attempting to achieve. Remind yourselves that suits are versatile and should not be held hostage in their closets for only special occasions. Style the blazer over any tee with denim for a polished, casual look and mix the pants with a brightly-colored button down for a non-denim, non-sweatpants type of day or night!

On our travels to LA, we met up with the namesake behind ByNate – Nate! and spent the entire day (and night) hanging out with him at Disneyland! No trip for us ever goes without style so we brought one of our favorite kids fashion designers, La Miniatura along for the ride.
Cool, calm & totally collected at the happiest place in the world! Wynn is wearing La Miniatura’s blue velvet tuxedo jacket and black crayon denim skinnys. Nate sports La Miniatura’s oxford plaid blazer and pants.
La Miniatura’s designer, Jeffrey Sebelia knows exactly how to produce fashion that demands attention and keeps all dignity in check – hence his signature tagline, “dress your kid with dignity”.
Two very active & very energetic little boys had no trouble running, racing, jumping & lounging around in their utmost fancy attire. Where most suits and special occasion clothing can be scratchy, ill-fitting and overall uncomfortable for kids – La Miniatura does it right with fabrics & cuts that easily keep up with any kid’s antics.
Playing your cards right when it comes to purchasing fashion is ultimately what style is all about. Pairing dapper attire with fun chunky boots like Nate’s Palladium Pampa Hi Lea Gusset or slick leather hightops like Wynn’s Paul Smith Junior Rabbit High Tops (available at MonPetit Child) is what keeps things fresh & interesting!
Dressing up and making that extra effort when it comes to style isn’t just for holidays or special occasions. Every day is a celebration and when you look good, you feel good. Wynn & Nate received an enormous amount of compliments while at Disneyland & California Adventure Park and we could tell by their faces & exploded energetic vibe that they knew they looked amazing and above all….loved it!

Across the country & across the pond, Littles everywhere are making their way back into the grips of educational institutions, aka “school”. We’ve got what’s hot when it comes to keeping them in style & “street cred” cool thanks to NYC designer, Appaman!
Always ready to rock the halls, Appaman’s Mod Suit has been a popular choice amongst parents everywhere ever since it’s debut. Available in several colors including plaid & the most gorgeous maroon velvet, the Mod Suit is the fastest way to looking fierce without all of the uncomfortable fuss. Sleek fitting yet cut to fit every type of body, Appaman’s Mod Suit is 100% polyester and wait for it…Machine Washable! Easy, effortless & just plain awesome!
For the ladies, Appaman once again has provided several mix & match pieces that will easily pump their closets full of fashionable combinations. From metallic pleated skirts to comfy cozy knits, getting dressed in the morning will be a snap!
Back to the boys, they have their choice of unique & edgy graphic tees, chunky knit sweaters, varsity-inspired cardigans all paired with easy to move in cords, twill & denim. We especially are fond of their Punk Pants!
Recently nominated by Earnshaw’s for Best Kids Outerwear, when the temps drop turn the dial up to any of Appaman’s down-filled jackets. Boys & Girls alike will remain toasty warm & extremely stylish all season long. It is the only outerwear my own son has continued to wear every year for its outstanding quality and overall heat-factor, not to mention the fabulous color & style choices that Appaman offers.
Wynn & his pals, Stefan & Cole took the Appaman Mod Suit for a spin recently. All 3 were in complete agreement that both pieces of the suit were comfortable to wear, easy to move, run AND jump in and gave it an overall A+
From dressed up to downtown chic, the Mod Suit is definitely one staple that should be in every little boy’s wardrobe. In addition, try out various styles with just the pants or just the jacket. Dark skinny jeans, hooded sweat or cardigans with the Appaman jacket thrown on is a spectacular look!

Appaman, based in NYC, has been providing kids with the coolest street cred fashion since 2003. Harald & Lynn Husum have 2 daughters of their own (along with the cutest dog ever, Party Hat) and are extremely keen on what’s hot & what’s not when it comes to what kids want to wear! Their Mod Suit, shot up to fashion fame when spotted on the little king of style, Kingston Rossdale! It has been designed with kids in mind, especially those that aren’t used to getting their fancy on. Silky smooth fabric goes on easily, is non-constricting and is precisely tailored to fit every kid’s body perfectly. In addition to Kingston, Appaman is frequently spotted on mini-celebs everywhere. And when temperatures drop, as they have been across the country, Appaman’s outerwear has been unsurpassed by any other designer. Wynn has worn their clothing since birth & no Chicago suburbs Fall or Winter has passed without him wearing Appaman and me feeling 100% confident that he is not only toasty warm but also street cred cool!
Sons+Daughters hails from Canada and gained it’s inspiration for Kids eyewear from classic Adult style frames. Every pair provides instant rad sophistication for kids everywhere ages 5-12. All of their frames are shatter-resistant and include 100% UVA/UVB protection. The “Bobby” frame that was thoroughly tested & worn by Wynn proved to be so comfortable on him that at times he forgot he was even wearing them (score!) The usual smudges that kids generally place on their shades, quickly disappeared with one swipe of a soft cloth. Extremely durable and constructed to withstand kid-abuse, we give Sons+Daughters 2 major thumbs up!
For the fantastic opportunity of modeling an Appaman Mod Suit & Sons+Daughters sunglasses of our own, we chose to engage the Eagle’s hit, “Hotel California” thru photos shot exclusively at The Lido in Hollywood and at The Beverly Hills Hotel. With style sophistication in place, we set off on a dark desert highway with cool wind in our hair…
