I ordered a few Ralph Lauren shirts for Henrik from my favorite consignment website.
They came in Thursday afternoon and I eagerly opened the box to admire the goodies.
But I immediately noticed one of the shirts looked different.
First off, the solid light blue shirt had a lot more buttons. Hmmm, that's weird.
Plus, it looked a little smaller than his other 2T shirts.
Let's try this puppy on!
Once he had it on, I began to notice other details that puzzled me.
The sleeves were gathered at the shoulder. That's not usually on boys shirts...
And the Polo emblem is in multiple colors...usually it's all in one solid color.
I noticed seaming along the back of the shirt. Once again, not on boys shirts.
So at this point I'm pretty sure I bought my son a girl's shirt.
But I notice under the collar, what looks like men's necktie fabric with skull and crossbones.
I started to question my conclusion, but even with the skull and crossbones, I'm still pretty positive this is a girl's shirt.
So it was quickly removed from the boy and it will promptly be returned.
All of the preceding events unfolded in about 8 minutes total before the light bulb came on.
Maybe a sharper person would have figured it out just by looking at the buttons. Haha, oh well!
