My last blog I was featured in our local Times Union as Father Fashion. Well it seems that holds true as I’m becoming the person folks all over the country are asking to help fit their children with our Big Kidz Jeanz. Every day I talk with people having terrible issues finding jeans to fit their tall thin kids or bigger husky kids.
Yes it has been some time since my last blog but raising two boys as a single Dad, running two companies and finding a balance to enjoy life and time with my boys is always a challenge. Unfortunately the blogging fell down at the bottom of the list but I’m making an effort to move it back to the top. Speaking of the top here is a recent picture of my boys and I skiing Whiteface Mountain and a beautiful view near the top. Definitely some quality time spent that day with my boys and that’s what is most important in life. For those of you following me on Facebook you may have seen this picture already but it is worth repeating here in my blog.
Big Kidz Jeanz is not quite at the top yet of the custom kid’s jeans market yet but that is certainly our intention. We feel that no one out there is doing it quite like we are. We continue to fill orders from all around the country with our custom length pants cut to fit. We cut and ship within a few days of orders being placed on our web site. Our web site http://bigkidzjeanz.com/ makes it easy for our customers to place an order and enables us to ship quick. We also provide a reasonable price for a custom pair of jeans that fit your child which are delivered right to your doorstep.
Never thought I’d become an expert on fitting kids into pants but that is what has happened over time here. Customers call or send emails everyday asking for help fitting their sons and daughters. I always ask what size their children are wearing now. Many reply they don’t know and can not fit their children in to what stores call “traditional” sizes. Very frustrating indeed and I know firsthand from trying to fit my two sons. One in to tall slim jeans that are too short the other in to husky jeans that are never long enough.
I reference a few other companies’ size charts like Lands End, LL Bean and The Gap. What baffles me is the wide range of sizes they come up with. How can an 18 Husky be a 28” waist on one chart and 33” waist on another? The inseam length can vary as much as 4” or more as well. I always ask what is the age, weight and height of your child. I also offer my sons stats and sizes they wear to give an idea of where their child may fall. We range from a 26” waist up to 44” waist so think we have a very good range of size scale. We can cut to 34” length (34.5” if really needed) all the way down to 16” length. Our waist measures true to size and the only way we could accurately ship proper fitting pants. Our BKJ Athletic Pants will finally be in this spring and we range from 24” to 46” waist size so this is an even bigger range to help fit kids and adults.
Being in business over 15 months now I can tell you my idea has been validated by the great testimonials folks have sent me from all over the country and world (yes we have a customer in the UK and few in Canada. We get emails saying…. “You’re a life Saver!”….”Thanks you so much for Big Kidz Jeanz”…”You’re a Godsend”…..”Finally a retailer who gets it!”…. “About time manufacturers realized all kids don’t fit in the slim regular and husky sizes. Thank you again!! You really should do more advertising and I’m telling everyone about your great jeans and great service!”
These great comments really make all the effort, expense and trials and tribulations of a new start up company worth it. That is why I started Big Kidz Jeanz in the first place as it really seemed we needed someone to fill this niche. We are striving to be on top of the fashion world for slim and husky kids jeans for sure! Pretty much like this picture here on Whiteface where I’m on top of the world and above the clouds!
