We’re pleased to announce that Appaman has been nominated for two Earnie Awards! Established by Earnshaw’s magazine, the leading childrenswear trade publication, the Earnies “recognize outstanding children’s companies for excellence in design. Since the Earnies are the only awards program voted on by industry experts, winning an Earnie Award is an important and valuable distinction for the companies selected.”
Appaman has been nominated under the categories “Best Boys’ Collection” and “Best Outerwear.”

We’re excited once again to be featured in Earnshaw’s magazine, a favorite of everyone at Appaman HQ and everywhere in the kidswear industry. Grab their July 2014 issue or click over to this month’s “Trendspotting” feature to see our feather-like girls faux fur jacket…coming soon to Appaman.com!
We think you’ll love this fabulously glam coat just as much as we do (that is to say…a LOT).

This just in! Appaman’s Mod Suit in Mist (a perennial fan favorite) was featured in the Summer 2014 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine, paired with our classic Standard Shirt in White.
For guests or ring bearers, the Mod Suit in Mist a popular choice for weddings in any season. It goes with almost any color shirt and tie, so you can wear it a million different ways…but nothing beats classic white. Fans love the “grown up” fit and look of the Mod Suit, and boys love how they can look sharp while staying nice and comfortable in their formalwear.

Our AppaMom featured bloggers have been hard at work adding their own spin to Appaman Spring/Summer 2014 style. Fine Tailoring, graphic tees, and fun accessories – you name it, they’ve styled it!
At PopStreet Kidz, Wynn experimented with layering and rolling the cuffs of his Skinny Twill Pants and Stanton Shorts to create his own tailored looks – from crisp and preppy and rock ‘n’ roll casual.
We love the attention to detail here — whether it’s a smart cuff on the pants paired with a button-up shirt, or the pushed-up sleeves of the throwback Barracuda Jacket over a graphic henley tee, this mom and son team have put together a series of looks that looks cool and effortless. Check out their blog to see more personalized looks and ideas for mixing Appaman pieces into your wardrobe.
Look 1 – Tilden Shirt in Pacific Blue, Graham Cardigan in Heather Grey, Skinny Twill Pants in Galaxy, The Lennon Sunglasses in Silver
Look 2 – Barracuda Jacket in Vintage Black, Short Sleeve Henley in Concrete, Stanton Shorts in Robot Blue, Rockabilly Sunglasses in Brown
Stroller in the City
Next up is Stroller in the City, who opted to stylize a longtime Appaman fan favorite: the Mod Suit.
Rocking the Mod Suit with a cotton Fisherman Cap, mirrored sunglasses, and tiger graphic shirt makes for a great combination of formal and casual. Model Ryder is on his second Mod Suit, and mom Brianne says, “Ry has worn this suit in so many ways… to a formal function with a button down and tie, just the jacket with jeans, just the pants…I wanted to showcase how this suit can be worn dressed down, we rolled up the sleeves to show off the Appaman signature logo and paired it with the Tiger Slub Tee rather than a tailored shirt.” See more photos here.
We love it!
And finally, we have our girly look of the group! Nine month-old Victoria is our youngest featured model, sporting some pieces from Appaman’s girl collection over on Mom Generations.
Going for the all-pink look, Victoria is wearing some of our favorite multi-purpose pieces that are available in mini sizes as well as big kid sizes. The Mermaid tee is a spring and summer staple that looks great with the Boardwalk Cardigan in the chilly weather. Girls of any age know that a skirt-and-legging combo like the Lexie Capri is comfy and functional.
We were glad to see Appaman Girl and Appaman Mini represented in Mom Generation’s house full of boys! For more photos, visit their site.

This season we searched the internet high and low to find moms with just the right touch of cool and asked them to join us as part of a new initiative program for Appaman. We have coined these fearlessly fabulous group of bloggers the AppaMoms.
We’d like to take this moment to welcome them and all their awesomeness: Mom Generations, Pop Street Kidz and Stroller in the City [applause]. We highly recommend you give them a follow and check out their blogs to learn what they are all about!
As AppaMoms, Mom Generations, Pop Street Kidz and Stoller in the City were able to hand pick Appaman outfits for their little ones to try them out out and tell us what they think. We can’t wait to see what they have to say. Stay tuned for more from the AppaMoms.
Kickin’ it Old School at Small Fry
Remember when tin can stilts, dominoes, and marbles weren’t overshadowed by DVRs and iPads?

Click on over to check out some great ideas for old-school games and toys to introduce to your kids, as well more gorgeous photos of our retro threads.
Love from Estella
Estella is a longtime favorite shop for the most fashionable kids in NYC and beyond. In addition to a great selection of quality kids’ clothing (Including yours truly! Not that we’re biased…), you can get the inside scoop and find great fashion/gift ideas on their blog.
So, of course, we were stoked to hear their thoughts on this season’s collection:
Appaman has released photos of its fall 2013 collection and, per usual, it is full of street-smart pieces that are comfortable, practical, and ultra cool. This season’s collection pays homage to iconic American style with vintage varsity jackets, prep school basics, and punk-inspired plaid. As always, the line manages to bring a hint of the founder’s unique Scandinavian perspective into its clothing to create truly one-of-a-kind pieces with tons of street-cred. Whether your kids are at school, heading to practice, or hanging out with friends, Appaman’s pieces allow your kids to discover and explore their own personal style. What’s better than that?
Thanks for the love! Right back at ya.
Always in-the-know LilSugar had great things to say about our Fall jackets and coats:
As usual, the line’s outerwear is the star of the show with fabulous varsity bomber jackets; puffy, motorcycle-inspired vests; and the boy’s band-inspired Route 1 jacket that he’ll be begging to wear even before the weather turns cool.

Outfit Ideas from People
People Moms & Babies recommends Appaman’s Mod Suit in Navy when your mini Justin Timberlake wants to turn this into a suit and tie kind of situation. We approve of most Justin Timberlake related matters, so we approve of this idea.
Our friends around the blogosphere are always coming up with great ways to style Appaman threads. Click on over to these links for great reading material and pint-sized fashion inspiration:
- Thanks to Spearmint Baby for featuring the Hockey Jersey in Galaxy in this gorgeous post about using navy blue in your baby’s nursery (even a gender neutral one).
- MAD PROPS to Stroller in the City for this rock star quality photo shoot featuring our Mod Suit in Mist, styled with a black and white tee and some matching kicks. Ryder looks like he’s touring the Lower East Side with his elementary school British punk band or something.
- Tristin and Tyler donned their matching Mod Suit blazers for a trip to Goodwill, where they donated some items they no longer needed, and did a little treasure hunting themselves! Appaman HQ’s resident thrift shop fanatics give ‘em two thumbs up.
- More love for our Fine Tailoring over at Mom Trends, where we made the cut for their “Best of Boys Fashions” feature.
- LilSugar included us in this cute slideshow of “Celebrity Tots’ Favorite Brands,” featuring pics of Kingston Rossdale and the Broderick twins.
