One stylish boy

Who says baby clothes need to be "cute."
Most baby clothes (especially boys) resemble something like this:
Yes, they say "Daddy's silly monkey" and "Mommy's little tiger."
It's actually quite hard to find plain baby clothes.
Is it too much to ask for someone to make stylish baby clothes that don't
have logos, characters or stupid sayings on them?
It's especially hard to find pants and shorts that aren't athletic or redneck looking
(sorry if you are into those things).
I just want plain clothes for Bennett that would be considered somewhat fashionable.
I should go into business making awesome baby clothes...
how hard can it be to make plain stuff?

When worst comes to worst, you make your own...

How to make cutoff jean shorts for you handsome little man:

Purchase jeans (skinny ones if you can find them).
Wash them.
Try them on baby to see where you want to cut.
Draw a chalk line across to make sure you have a straight cut.
Cut off one leg and fold it over to know where to cut on the second leg.
Draw a chalk line and cut second leg.
Try them on baby.
You can roll them up or leave them down.
I think I like them down.
See how much he loves them?

Now we just need to get a few American Apparel tank tops and we are set for summer!
