Do you loathe shopping for your son in traditional stores because you simply don’t like him wearing various trucks, or other generic “boy” things plastered all over his clothing? These days, moms are shucking the traditional OshKosh overalls and opting for a different, more “hipster,” look for their boys. Read on to learn about our favorite small businesses for hipster apparel.
The Printed Palette is truly a diamond in the rough when it comes to business and apparel. It is owned and operated by a soon-to-be married couple, and their design approach is “taking simple shapes and blending them with vintage twists or thought-provoking words. Most of our designs are stemmed from being inspired in our everyday lives.”
Their products range from men and women’s clothing, to home goods, papers and accessories. We absolutely adore their clothing line because The Printed Palette makes sure that they use only water based inks free from harmful chemicals. Rather than being simply screen printed on the onesie, the inks are embedded into the fabric to create a high quality product in both look and feel.
Fun graphics such as this adorable fox onesie that says “bright eyed & bushy tailed” are half the fun of ordering a design from The Printed Palette. Pieces are sure to become a topic of conversation, whether it’s you wearing them, or your little “Captain Adorable.”
If you’re local in Southern California, feel free to check out their new brick & mortar shop in Carlsbad, California, and pop in to meet the owners personally. They put their heart and soul into their business, and it shines through in attitude, customer service, and quality.

If you aren’t aware of this Instagram rooted business turned ABC Shark Tank global phenomenon, then you will adore learning about Freshly Picked. CEO Susan began making baby moccasins in 2009 when she was frustrated with the lack of well-designed baby shoes on the market at the time.
She found huge success selling her handmade moccs from her Instagram account, and then appeared last season on ABC’s Shark Tank, where she received an investment from one of the sharks, and the brand has continued to explode ever since. All moccs are made with impeccable quality and many celebrity children have been spotting sporting their Freshly Picked moccasins. We adore them because they feature an elastic top, so they will not fall off your child’s foot like most shoes out there. They are made out of 100% handcrafted leather, and come in a variety of fun colors, and patterns; you are sure to find one that matches your son’s unique style, whether it’s the “Prince George” color featured, or a fun camouflage print from their signature collection.
