What Ben Wore: ZenThreads


This is currently my favorite outfit of Benjamin's! It's one of those outfits that I look at wish it came in my size. I am pretty much obsessed with anything Cali related so when I saw this California Bear Tee for kids by ZenThreads I hadtohaveit! *ZenThreads is an "eco friendly print shop. Each item is thoughtfully designed, created and screen pressed by hand" in their California studio. They have a large variety of prints and products for everyone in the family.
The turn around time was quick which I liked (who doesn't?) because I was so excited to receive our shirts. I made a huge mistake though! I didn't pay close enough attention to the sizing charts and so the adult tees we got (both XL) were HUGE on me. Like, not even cute with leggings, huge. Womp womp. This was totally my fault since ZenThreads includes a sizing chart with each of their listings. Oops. Well, my loss was Ben's gain and he is definitely not complaining! He ended up getting the Men's California Bear t-shirt and Men's California State t-shirt.

Feeling a bit left out, I decided to purchase a Women's California Bear tank top. I actually paid closer attention to the sizing chart this time so I was really disappointed when it was too small this time. Man! I also don't think the cut is particularly flattering on me which is why you won't see me wearing it in this post. Even still I am a huge fan of ZenThreads and would definitely purchase from them in the future, especially for the baby. Next time I order for myself I'm going to try the Unisex Tanks.
Ben and I were both very pleased with the quality of these shirts and the printing. He says they're now among his favorite shirts to wear. He likes the collar, overall fit, and how soft they are. The true test, for me, with any new clothing is how well they hold up in the wash. I have since washed each of these shirts and they remain soft and unfaded. I also love that they are great conversation starters + Benjamin gets compliments any time he wears his! Not to mention that they're cute as can be. I adore these photos of my boys in their ZenThreads tees!!

*ZenThreads was nice enough to provide a t-shirt to everyone in my family for the sake of this review. Thanks, ZenThreads!
