I admit I don't like the slogans much either. I got given a few second hand baby tops that say things like
"My mum's a fox" and "I take the fun out of shopping" and I'm too embarrassed to use them and take him out in public like that.
Eww, yes I agree slacktarts, tacky, tacky!! I'd never buy slogan tops for ds.
For my ds I love him in stripes, polo tops, surf and skate t-shirts. I always find something I like for him at cotton on kids, country road or surf shops. Sometimes target has some ok stuff too, their skinny jeans are awesome not sure if they're doing them again this winter though?? pumpkin patch is not my style for boys and Kmart is a bit hit and miss. I've heard best and less have some cool stuff for boys too.
