          These are really nice boys shorts. The material is soft and has a nice thickness to it. The waist band has the hidden adjustable elastic to ensure a secure fit. The pockets are the perfect place for those special treasures that he finds. High quality material and High quality craftmanship. Oh yeah... I purchased the shorts on sale so I also got an excellent deal.

            Love these shorts! I bought 2 of them for my 3 year old son. nice quality. They are a little hard to button, but because of the elastic in the waist we just pull them down for potty breaks while still buttoned up. The back pockets/flaps are a little poofy, so it looks a little funny if worn with a shirt that's on the small/tighter side

                Shorts are very cute on my son. I wish Boden would use hook and bar closures instead of buttons. Very difficult for my young son to get on and off himself. Nerve racking when he needs to go to the bathroom quickly!

                  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.
