hampton As you know, I’m constantly on the hunt for the perfect T for my husband. Well, like just about everything else around here, he’s taking a backseat to the kids now because I’ve seen some of THE CUTEST vintage t-shirts for little boys lately!

Preppy, rocker, hippie, superhero, cartoon characters, college stuff….there’s really something for everyone. The trick is finding something a little edgy and cool without being inappropriate and/or snotty. There’s a thin line between “I do my own stunts” and “Gonna open a can of whoop-ass on you.”

For this post I’m just concentrating on the preppy stuff because – well, it’s my favorite look and I just got back from a week in Cape Cod so I’m totally in the mood for labs, crabs and whales.

For the shabby preppy look my #1 happy place is Jcrew’s Crewcuts. These guys are all about east coast prep. These shirts are so great because they look like you picked them up while summering on “the Vineyard” or in the Hamptons except they’re much cooler and much better quality than the scratchy shrinky dink souvenir shop t-shirts. I think i have just about every one of their t-shirts … love those JCREW sales!!

harvard A very close second for prep is a line of vintage college t-shirts from Tailgate Clothing. Tons of schools like Harvard, NYU, Dartmouth…and even my alma mater Michigan. (that’s the one i bought of course – but can’t find a picture on the Web!)  You can find most of the line at the Tailgate Clothing website (which doesn’t always work so well) or a very cute little online boutique called Food Fight.

So, I ask you….who did I miss?  If you know of another place where I can get cute preppy vintage t-shirts for the boys let me know!

    I don’t know how you’d rate these shirts. To me, they are 10 out of ten. I would love to wear them than my Cherokee scrubs.
