    I wonder if some kid's size Diesel jeans would fetch a high price on eBay with some vintage authentic formula stains on them?

    I'm trying to hook my nephews up with some j-crew polos. I seriously hate getting anything expensive for kids, cuz they'll all grow out of it. I can't wait to hand down some of my jackets someday.

    I wonder if styleforum peeps'll have kids who post on here someday?

    I have two boys, 3-years and 5-months. People have given us some expensive stuff, Polo, Oilily, Jane & Jack, etc... but most of the stuff we buy is inexpensive.

    I can't see spending a lot of money on clothing when they're just going to outgrow it so quickly.

    Places like Old Navy, Baby Gap, Carter's Outlet, Disney Store Outlet and Costco are fine for now.

    Our most recent purchase was two pairs of kid's Levi's at Costco for $9.99 each - size 3T & 4T (he'll grow into the second pair).

    Also on shoes, we always wait for the 2 for 1 sales and buy two pairs (one a size up). Right now my oldest is wearing Elmo Sneakers, but he's got a nice pair of Nike's waiting for him.

    I have bought a few cool shirts at a kids boutique I found here in town, but I haven't paid over $25 for any one shirt.

    The other thought is kid's re-sale shops. There are a lot of those and you can let someone else pay the full price for clothing and then buy it "lightly" used.

    When our boy gets big enough to wear actual clothes as opposed to baby stuff, we'll probably hit Old Navy and the Gap. They've got sweet trendy clothing that is very similiar to adult trends for pretty cheap. Of course he'll be sportin' old school Vans like his pops too. The JCrew stuff looks awesome, but man, it'll be outgrown in a blink, and will be stained, soiled, dirtied constantly - hard for me to stomach that purchase. Who knows, maybe a baggy'ish JCrew jacket that he could wear for a while.

    A friend of mine gave me 2 pair of Levis 1 pocket buckle backs for my son (1 denim and one lt. blue cord) that he got from a friend at Levis. He actually ended up getting a ton of wear out of them, and now I'm going to pass the on to my 2 year old come the fall. I think I can squeeze a good year and a half out of them with him. Althought I didn't pay for them I have to say that had I, I would have thought they were worth it since my oldest wore them almost every day (just like dad) and I can pass them on to my little one.

    I hate spending any major cash on kids stuff since they at some point get stained, ripped and beaten down pretty fast. Not to mention the fact that they grow like weeds, But I do have to say it's pretty funny to see your 3 year old in a pair of buckle back Levis, a duffer zip hoodie and slip on vans. It really trips some people out.
