      LOVE these for my son! He tends to be a little thick in the waist, and it's hard to find things that fit his waist that aren't huge everywhere else. These are perfect. His only complaint is that he wishes they were longer.

            These shorts are lightweight and good looking. I bought in advance for next Summer, so I cannot attest to the fit yet, but I expect typical Boden quality :)

              These shorts are great for my 4 year old because he can get them on and off by himself. I like the length of them - some shorts are so long they cover knees, and I don't like that look. These hit mid to lower thigh so I could see them being too short for older kids in the bigger sizes.

                Shorts are very comfortable- we did size up as these seem to run a smidgen smaller (and shorter)

                  I bought these shorts for my son in two colors and they've both worn beautifully. They fall to mid thigh which was so nice to find versus longer shorts that seem so common and can look too big on toddler legs.

                    Living in Texas, where we have 9 months of very warm weather my son wears mostly shorts. These are cute, comfy and go with a ton of his shirts and shoes.

                      • Casual Wear

                      My 4 year old who likes "soft shorts" with an elastic waistband loves to wear these shorts and due to the fabric and design they look much nicer than his other comfortable choices. He is a very solid, 45lb guy and the 5 yo size fits perfectly right now. I wouldn't be afraid to size up even more for more room to grow, since the functional drawstring makes them more forgiving with regard to sizing.

                        These shorts are very cute on my two boys, ages 6 and 9 (I bought sizes 7 and 10 -- the waist is a little loose but there is a drawstring that works well). The blue and yellow colors are both really nice, the blue more electric and the yellow mustard with a naturally dyed look that will probably fade nicely over time. The shorts are pretty short and very lightweight, good for very hot weather and practical for summer camp. They have a slightly old-fashioned look, remind me of what we wore in my childhood (in a good way).

                            I bought a size 5 for my 5 year old. They might be a little bit of a snug fit but I think that is part of the style. A little bit shorter than some of his other shorts. Blue and white stripe is more cream colored than I expected. They are very cute for little boys. Overall, I am happy with this purchase.
