Micropost: My Fall Basics Order for My Son at Gap.

By: Jen Shoop

I ordered a bunch of basics for my son from Gap yesterday because they were running 30% off everything (you can get additionally savings if you have GapCash). Gap occasionally runs 40% off promotions but I just decided to pull the trigger because I noticed that the vest I was eyeing for him was suddenly back-ordered, which made me wonder if items were at risk of sell out. I always do one or two big “basics” purchases from Gap at the start of each season for him. I really love their basics for boys. I find the quality solid and the fit classic. (Not too skinny, and not too baggy — I find a lot of traditional brands have really baggy, almost cartoonishly poufy bottoms for boys, and Little English and J. Crew run realllllly narrow in bottoms.) I buy him his true size, a 3T. Anyhow, here is my exact order:

The other fall items I’ve ordered for him this fall are:

I will soon stock up on long-sleeved Lacoste polos (if you stalk Amazon regularly, you can randomly find them on sale for $10 or even $20 off), order the rest of his outerwear, layer in some inexpensive picks from Zara and H&M, and figure out his fall footwear situation…

More to come!

P.S. Motherhood is a surfeit.

P.P.S. What to wear home from the hospital.

P.P.P.S. To my son on his third birthday.
