It's really easy to look after/use and there's lots of great boy colours out there. Although I guess it would depend on what you like, but I have lots of fab longies/shorties for James which I think are great. Also Katie (Lallysmum) has an amazing wool collection for Lal in all sorts of colour combos.
Basically find some wool you like the look of (Blue Faced Leicester or Merino mostly) and then find someone to knit it up for you! Babylonglegs and Wharfedale Woolworks on Folksy have fab wool and dye to order, Emma at Bobby Dazzlers, Ali at Pixie Knits, Jo at Halobaby and Michelle at Woolly Wumpkins also all dye/knit up their own wool, as do Lisa and Yvonne at The Nappy Garden and Neelam on CNA also knits up from a very lovely wool stash.
I've had work from all of them (except Michelle who I have a slot with later in the year) and they are all incredibly helpful and lovely ladies who'll do their best to make sure you get exactly what you want.
If it helps, my wool photobucket album is here - http://s170.photobucket.com/albums/u257 ... Stash/BBM/
