      I bought these shorts for my son. We usually have trouble finding him shorts because of his build (long and lean). He picked these out because of the colour and all the pockets. He adores them. They fit perfectly, and after 4 washes, they still look as bright as ever! The only con is that the pockets all come unbuttoned and go wonky in the wash. Which isn't a big deal because they are easily fixed.

          The sizing is just a tad on the larger side. I really have to sinch the adjustable waste tight to keep his bum from showing! I think the length is perfect.

              The best classic khaki shorts I have had in a year. They are so well made and look cool. I love how they are long and durable. Very versatile.

                Great summer staple, with a relaxed fit and longer length ( hits a few inches below knee). These are are significantly heavier weight than the summer cargos which I also bought. Love the adjustable waist band.

                  Bought these adorable shirts (seagull and turtle) for my almost 6-year-old son. He loves them! Very soft and well-made, perfect for summer. The turtle shirt is a perfect match to the "tennis green" cargo shorts. My son loves anything with an animal on it, which is why Boden is always in our closets! Thank you Boden for offering cute, age appropriate clothing for my children!

                      We have a two-year-old and these shorts are great for him! He is in the 90th percentile for weight and height and the size 2Y fits him great with a little room to grow in the waist. The colors are fantastic (we have the blue and green) and they seem very durable. The pockets don't stay buttoned and they wrinkle in the laundry, but it doesn't matter. Our son always asks for these when they are in the wash! A favorite, you won't be disappointed.

                        These shorts have been staples in my boys' dressers for many years. The younger boy wears the older boys' hand-me-downs. These shorts remain sturdy and stylish year after year.

                            So I took a chance on these & here is what I found: I like the way the pockets lay (unlike a couple years ago when they were impossible to make lie flat) and the material is durable. The contrast patterns inside is cute but they run small! My 7 yr old had to size up to a 10! Good thing he is tall.

                              I love these shorts, they look great on my son and with the adjustable waist, they fit perfectly. I did get the red, white and blue shorts, but they are yellow and not white, so the shirt I got didn't go well. But they are still cute!
