Boys Fashion at Base

Having three sons, I have bought a fair few boys clothes in my time. I have always enjoyed shopping for my sons as much as I do for my daughter. I used to love going out with Teen to buy clothes when he was a bit younger, I always had him dressed well, he used to enjoy shopping with me and trying on clothes! Who needs girls? Ha!

One shop that Teen used to frequent was Base. We used to have one in our town but recently they closed it down which I was very upset about as they stocked all the branded clothes that Teen hankered after, so when I received an email a few weeks ago, inviting me to attend a special Base event, I jumped at the chance! I knew it would be a good opportunity to find out why they closed my local store, but also to browse their fab collections again!

Because Teen is 6ft tall now and wears men’s clothes not ‘boys’, I thought it best to take my twins along instead… which was a good move as I found out that Base no longer do a men’s range and they haven’t done for a number of years. Base have always been a predominantly ‘boys’ only clothing store but they did do a few adult ranges too, something they don’t do now because they wanted to get the Base brand back to it’s origins and that is to sell high end boys clothing.

They wanted to keep the brand more exclusive, hence the closing of some of their stores, and only keeping the bigger ones in the more fashionable areas.

When we arrived at Westfield shopping centre we were treated to some lovely refreshments… lots of cakes and biscuits for my children (I had my daughter with me too), before meeting the lovely Manager of the store who talked to us about the Base Brand, and showed us quite a few pieces from the collections they have in stores right now.

She also went on to inform us that Base is a family run business that has been around for almost 100 years…. Wow, that’s pretty good going, I was impressed! It was originally an occasion wear store selling stylish suits for boys, something which they have now brought back to selected outlets.

Their products are uber desirable, only selling the best/trendiest boys designers out there…. you’ll find the likes of Armani, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Timberland and many more adorning the shop floor!

We were very kindly offered a voucher to spend in store and were actively encouraged to have a good look around to see what took our fancy. It was a very difficult choice I can tell you… everything in this shop is cool and I couldn’t make up my mind. I would’ve been happy with anything to be fair!

Base Boys ClothingWe loved the Armani range…

Armani kids shoes at BaseI absolutely fell in love with these summer shoes…. Want want want for my boys!

Obviously, some of the pieces are on the pricey side, but they are a real treat, an absolute must have for any fashion conscious young man who wants to look good! (Or the Mum who wants to splash out for that extra special piece!).

They even stock a large selection of designer toddler and baby clothes….

I miss the Base store near our home, but luckily Base is online and they have a wide range of goodies for you to peruse. They even have a girls collection too. I dare you to not thoroughly enjoy looking around this website and feel the need to purchase everything on there!

Anyway back to my predicament of finding something to spend my voucher on….. I wanted to buy something for each of my boys which meant two items! I let them look around, then O spotted this lovely red Converse sweatshirt…. I’d been saying only the other day how they both needed a nice new sweatshirt and this style came in two different colours.

They couldn’t have been more perfect.

We enjoyed our visit to Base, I will definitely be back, and if I can’t make it to an actual store, the website will be my first port of call when I want to buy something special for the kids. I’ve already got my eye on a few things……

Disclaimer: I was invited to Base, Westfield to take a look at their new ranges and was given a voucher to spend in store. All words and opinions expressed are my own and honest.
