Dungarees and potty training just don’t work but nonetheless Hector, now four, insisted on wearing them throughout. Still does, occasionally.
He just can’t cope with his little brothers mincing around in his old ones.
Most brands stop making dungarees for over twos (very wise, it’s gross when the straps go down the loo). But what if your child really, really loves them?
I discovered last year that much-loved American brand OshKosh ships to the UK and right now they’re having the most phenomenal sale. As in 50% off.
Last year I went slightly mad on the site, not just on “overalls” but on winter coats, sweaters, lumberjack shirts and cardigans and they’re all now being worn by Hector’s brother.
I couldn’t recommend OshKosh more highly for speedy delivery and value: it’s not even particularly expensive compared to shopping on the high street.
Here are just a few of the dungarees on offer for boys and girls (they also do baby sizes)
Brooklyn wash overalls £12
With real metal hardware, and the softest denim, this pair is a winter classic. Pair these overalls with a matching plaid button-front (!) for cool OshKosh style.
Fleece lined demin dungarees £18
Keep him or her warmer this winter in fleece-lined overalls. Made with classic OshKosh denim and real metal hardware.
Mechanic tinted overalls £12
Classic overalls are an essential for every OshKosh boy. Constructed with genuine hardware and reinforced stitching, this pair is made to last.
