Find suits to fit the husky boy for special occasions
As your boy gets older, he'll face more and more situations where he needs to wear a suit. Music recitals, school dances and graduation ceremonies make the suit one of the most important articles of boys clothing in his closet. If he's on the bigger side, however, it can be difficult to find a properly fitting suit at an affordable price. The good news is that Sears carries a wide selection of boys' suits and dresswear for husky boys from some of the top names in the industry.
There are a variety of reasons a boy might need a suit. The most common include weddings, funerals and church. A specific church-related example is the occasion of a first communion. Although many boys simply wear regular suits, there are actually special first communion suits which are usually white in color. Buying a suit specifically for the occasion of a first communion is a great way to highlight the special nature of this day. Generally speaking, however, most suits that are available for boys are dark in color, usually black or navy. Just as with men's suits, you'll find boy's suits in a variety of styles including those with double- or single-breasted jackets. Some also come with vests; loaded with style, suits with vests are a great option for fashion-forward young men.
Of course, dressing for a special occasion doesn't always mean that a suit is necessary. In fact, boys can dress for a party, church or a wedding by relying on dresswear staples such as pants, oxford shirts and ties. Many parents prefer to buy dresswear as separates because it makes it easier to replace pieces as they are outgrown, which is not usually possible with suits. Buying dress clothes as separates also allows your son to choose individual pieces that most appeal to his taste. Boys husky tops are cut to fit bigger upper bodies in a flattering way, while most boys' husky pants are pleated in front for freedom of movement.
If the weather is on the coolerr side, a suit jacket and dress shirt may not be enough to ward off the cold. Shop our boys' husky outerwear section and find a windbreaker, down jacket or boys trench coat to throw over that suit. Boys coats from Athletic, Minus Zero, Overdrive and more look great with both casual and formal clothes.
While boys' ties aren't always necessary, they are a great way to complete an outfit. Boys' ties come in a wide variety of colors and prints, ensuring that you're able to choose a tie that appeals to your son's sense of style. Some of the most popular boys' ties are made by companies such as Dockers, Elite and Alynn.
