the best school pants!
I have purchased these pants three times for my son. He can get them on and off easily. They are very soft against his skin, he is super picky about the way clothes feel. The knees last all school year with out wearing out. These pants look nice enough for church and are durable enough for rough and tumble play at school. I suggest you get two of each color, since you will be washing them all the time.

This is the third pair I have bought for my son. Comfortable, wear well and versatile for casual or for church. Will buy again and again.

Well made, but extra roomy
My son likes the comfort and style of these pants. But, if you have a 'regular' size boy, you might need a slim, as I did. They are a little too roomy, otherwise. He is ten, and has worn 10 slim for two years. Now it's time to move up to the 12 slim, especially for length. He does not normally wear a slim. Still they fit him well. You just have to know what size to buy. (The old ones will be handed down to his cousin now.) The only reason I gave 4 Sailboats instead of 5 is the sizing.

So easy to put on and take off, no zippers or snaps!!!!
Thank you for bringing this pant back, It has always been the best fit for my son who is a skinny child with CP.
The style makes so much easier for him to independently put on and take off, and is still "stylish" for an older child in a wheelchair!!!

Year after year after year...
After all these years, I figured I should review this product. So easy for our son to slide on; so durable. His only favorites for the last 10 years. Yes, they comes in slim fit for both Little Boys and Big Boys sizes. I always cut off the elastic belt, and it doesn't even look like something is missing. The navy fades a bit after a couple of years of washing, but by that time he is ready for a new size. I just keep an extra pair or two up on the closet shelf that I mark on the inside as "dress pants". They only come down when he needs his brightest, newest look (church, restaurants...) so they don't go through the wash as often, and they stay brighter. I just wish these slacks were available as in-between sizes, e.g. instead of just sizes 4,6,8,10... maybe there could be sizes 4,5,6,7,8,9,10... Judging from the large number of reviews and high praise given to this product, I think Land's End could support the inventory, even if none of the other slacks have these special sizes. Then our son wouldn't look like he was waiting for the flood just before he was tall enough for the next size. (No, he doesn't like wearing pants that are too long and rolling up the bottom into a cuff, and hemming them would leave a crease line.) This is only a minor annoyance, since my boy isn't too fashion-conscious. No other pants I have found come in the in-between sizes either, so these still get 5 stars. If Land's End adds those extra sizes I'll give them 6 stars!

Way too big on my 5 yr old
After all the awesome reviews I was really excited about these pants for my picky 5 yr old who mostly likes sweats & track pants... The fabric was really not very soft (similar to other khakis) and the fit in a size 4 was huge on him even though I ordered 3 other LE pant styles in the same size that fit well. Too long & way too wide. If I pulled the belt tight it was super bunched up around the waist. I dont think (?) there was a slim fit in the little boys sizes. That being said love the concept of the reinforced knees & wish more of the other pants had that...

The Best Pants Ever!
I have bought these for uniform pants for both of my boys for school for several years - one is husky, the other is not. Both fit well. They love the built-in belt as they're required to wear one and how comfortable they are. They always last more than one school year (unless they outgrow them). True double knees are awesome. They are a thick material so can wrinkle/crease but I've found using liquid fabric softener in the wash really helps and I don't have to iron them.

Have spent an extraordinary amount of time trying to find school uniform pants accepted at my grandson's school that are comfortable and fit. He just started kindergarten and we wanted pants that did not involve a lot of buttons and zippers and such. It is enough of a change starting school. He is also slim and getting pants that stay up without a belt was difficult. If you find pants that are small enough in the waist to stay up, they are too short as he needed a 3 waist per most pants size charts but a 5 for the length. I saw these pants online and with fingers crossed, ordered a pair of 5 slims to try. I truthfully figured it would be a matter of disappointment and sending them back. But voila, we found our "magic" pants. Look great, fit perfect, stay up but are comfortable. He can pull them up and down without even unsnapping the buckle on the attached belt. We are thrilled. I will be ordering additional pairs so he has enough for the school year. My only complaint would be that the shorts that are made this way and in slims as well, have cargo pockets and the school will not allow shorts with cargo pockets. So these are uniform compliant, please make these style of shorts without the cargo pockets. I will likely have to buy the pants and cut and hem them so he has shorts for the hotter months. But we are SO happy with our magic pants. Oh and they dried fast. I hand washed his pair and hung them to dry not expecting they would be dry by morning but they were. I was very surprised.Thank you Lands End!

Please make these in Gray!
Great pants for my 11 yr old (who won't wear blue jeans)! Just wish you also had them in GRAY! Gray and Navy our our staples that go with most shirts. So I am only left with Navy and have to do gray sweat pants.
