At our new house we have an awful lot of DIY & Gardening work. Did I ever mention the house is a constant 5 year project? Needless to say it means that we and the boys getting incredibly dirty every weekend and despite the washing machine being on constantly some clothes just never look the same again.
And of course even when it isn’t the weekend the boys go to a school which runs Forest Schools. A day every week spent outside regardless of weather or mud conditions all year round. Don’t get me wrong they adore it and its just fabulous but watching them coming out of class after they’ve been hunting in the mud pit…well its make me wonder if there’s any mud left in it!
So when Dickies offered Jack a redhawk junior boiler suit to muck gloriously around in I had to accept. They’re perfect for everything little boys do from scouts, outdoor messing about down to go cart racing. I’m slightly surprised we haven’t bothered getting one before as it saves so much time in changing him and hunting out play clothes. I did make the mistake though of ordering the next size up as he’s very prone to growth spurts and on arrival I discovered they’re very generous with their sizing. In fact from a good point of you this does allow you to wear plenty underneath and just pop it over. Perfect for autumn and winter work!
It’s a beautiful bright red so he stands out for miles around and as I’ve said is incredibly roomy which allowed him to climb trees and run around without feeling constricted. They wash easily and still feel soft without stiffness. In fact all their specifications are just perfect for being out and about in them.

They are a perfect miniature of his grandparent’s boiler suits and I see many happy days spent rolling about in the garage or garden in them. They are of an excellent quality too so am prepared to be they also last for my youngest too!
