I’ve never known a pageboy to be disappointed in the quality of his shirt, or frown at the way the pleating falls on his chinos. Mainly they’ll be rolling in cake on the lawn. Best not to spend a fortune then… Here’s some ideas:
1. Fancy dress page boy. More people should do this. Really. It is better for the world. Small pageboy, dressed as a monkey or dinosaur, bish bash bosh, everyone’s happy. Do it, do it, do it.
2. High street pageboy. The high street is full of cute pageboy outfits which you can put together yourself. There’s absolutely no need to go to a bridal shop. Indeed it’s madness until you’ve checked out the likes of Next, Debenhams, BHS and Marks & Spencer.
3. Casual page boy. Little boys trussed up in grown up suits have a habit of looking uncomfortable. How about a more beachy look – with a short sleeved summer shirt and long shorts.
