All of my older kids are lacking in summer clothes, so we’ve been frequenting our favorite clothing shops (Old Navy and Target) for some cheap replenishment. I’m flummoxed and perplexed by the huge number of muscle shirts available for boys. Who is buying them? These have always seemed the height of white trashiness (do they come with a fake kid-sized can of Skoal to keep in the back pocket of the matching shorts?) Or did I just pick up some kind of strange bias against these (like I have about so many other things such as baby headbands and french manicures)?
Do you think these are tacky and gross, or is it just me? Do you think that a few less inches of sleeve fabric can really keep a person that much cooler?
(And aren’t you glad the shirts above are available in husky? Because a sleeveless shirt is just what a chubby boy needs.)
