Hank Player Review

As a mom of 2 boys, I often have trouble finding unique, stylish clothing for my children.  Most of the styles seem to be very similar, and really - how many plaid shirts does 1 child need?

I was recently contacted by Hank Player USA to review their tee's. They were kind enough to send me 4 shirts, 2 for each of the boys.

A little about the company - from the website:

Hank Player strives to create a quality, long lasting garment that brings together a combination of unique graphics and vintage color processing.  All about clean designs on easy-wearing clothes, Hank Player is garment dyed and washed to give it a familiar lived-in feel.

The following is taken from the FAQ section on the Hank Player website:
Hank Player garments are made using a special vintage processing. Each garment will have a weathered and worn-in look, with slight variations in color and graphic, for a one-of-a-kind look.  

All Hank Player garments are made with the finest quality ringspun, supima cotton. They can be machine-washed with like colors and tumble-dried low. A cool iron can be used if needed, but please do not iron on the printed graphic.

Hank Player is proudly made in the USA


As soon as I took them out of the box, I noticed how soft they were. I then checked the washing instructions, I like clothes that are easily cared for - my oldest is hard on his clothes, and I need to know that they will stand up to the constant washing/drying. 

They have lots of designs to choose from, check out this page to see the options available! We were sent the "Rock On" and "Breakfast of Champions" for Julien; and for Kyle, the "running shoes" and "blah blah blah".

I received size 4t for Julien, which is his regular size and it fits quite well. They pre-shrink the shirts before selling)which is awesome, because I have purchased quite a few outfits for Jules that have not been, and after washing have not fit), so they are pretty true to size. Kyle's shirts were 2 sizes - 6mth and 12mth - and he was able to wear both - the 12mth was slightly big, but still wearable now.

I am quite impressed with the quality - the more they have been washed (4 times this past week), the softer they seem to get. They are pretty lightweight, and Julien was really happy with the designs. It is hard to get them off him to wash!

I do need to tell you that there was an issue with the maroon "rock on" shirt, and the dye running -however,  I was in contact with the company and they are investigating it, as they haven't had any feedback like mine before. They were quick to respond, and dealt with it to my satisfaction - and it wouldn't stop me from buying a shirt in the future.
