Dressed for the occasion - formal wear from Roco Clothing review

I really do love dressing Ethan up. He's starting to develop his own tastes and preferences, but generally likes all the clothes we have for him - just enjoys picking things out for himself. 

When it comes to special occasions, I do find it trickier to find things for him to wear. You can pick up basic items on the high street, but often I think they don't have much choice or put much imagination into these clothes, for boys at least.

We discovered Roco Clothing a few months ago and picked Ethan a beautiful and versatile suit that could be used as a complete set or as separate items, and he has worn this for a few events and always receives compliments on how dapper he looks.

We had a family Christening a couple of weekends ago and Roco kindly sent us a different boys' suit for the occasion. I wanted to choose something different to the grey herringbone jacket and navy trouser combo Ethan already has, so opted for a lighter fabric and blue shade. 

This time, we chose the Boys Chambray and Brown Tweed Suit (RRP £64.99-£74.00). It comes with a jacket, trousers, waistcoat, shirt, pocket square and tie, which can be worn altogether or used separately, which is why I find this to be a versatile investment, as you can mix and match items to get a lot of good use out of the suit before they grow up a size.

This suit combines the traditional Paisley of London chambray Sampson style with the latest waistcoat from their Heritage collection, and it is a really striking contrast of materials and tones. 

Roco says that the Sampson suit is an investment piece and I agree - it really is the most beautiful shade of blue, perfect for my blue eyed boy, and the slim fit and adjustable waist are perfect too as Ethan has long, lean legs and no hips!

The Alec waistcoat adds a traditional hint with its brown shade (see previous link to see what this looks like - Ethan is wearing the matching blue waistcoat here, but with the Alec brown tie) and would work well in autumn and winter too, so I know we will get a lot of use out of this.

Just look at how smart my little man looks...

Here's some more specs for Ethan's new Roco Clothing suit:
  • Product code: Sampson chambray Alec brown
  • Jacket, waistcoat & trousers: 100% polyester
  • Tie & handkerchief: 100% polyester
  • Shirt: 65% polyester, 35% cotton
  • Jacket and waistcoat feature a paisley pattern lining
  • Adjustable strap on back of waistcoat
  • Trousers have adjustable waist on all sizes
  • Available in sizes 1 to 14 years
  • Dry clean only

Roco Clothing really offer a high quality range of formal clothes for babies, boys and girls. The materials used and the finish of each item cannot be faulted, there is a great choice to be had - all the way to finishing accessories such as belts and shoes - and we absolutely love the clothes Ethan has from them.

Importantly, he does too - and he loves showing off his new jacket, pockets and tie - I think he feels super grown up!
