Rated 3 out of 5 by NYRobin the fabric is thinner than last year....
My son has worn these pants for the past few years to school everyday as they work for the uniform requirements of his school. Last year the knees wore out on all 5 pairs of pants. I just ordered 10 pairs and to my dismay I compared the fabric to the pants he wore last year and it is thinner. YIKES! Hope that J Crew researched fabric durability when switching to this cord. I will see what happens with these pants but J Crew needs to take in to consideration the strength of fabric for kids pants. Maybe reinforced knees for next year? How about fun patch kits to sell as an accessory???

Rated 4 out of 5 by LIssa Great All-Round Pant for my son- with one exeption
We've been buying this slim cord for several years now- upping the size each time- till now, we are finally on our last option- size 14 - sadly we discovered the inside waist adjustable elastic is not included on a size 14. - the pant /waist proportion is still wonky for my son–so a trip to the tailor to add the special elastic at the fair price of 25.00 makes for an expensive but necessary "alteration".
Why is that ever-so-important kids feature missing from this size- and WHY is it not called out in the product description??? Add it in you guys!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by genmed great for tall, thin boys
These cords are great for my tall, thin boy (38" tall, 28lb, size 3). They are soft on the inside, so they are comfy. They aren't so skinny that they impede movement, just skinny enough so they don't look baggy. We have them in several colors, they go great with a variety of shirts and sweaters. The color stays true despite multiple washings and drying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peach Great Pants
I was very pleased at how light weight the fabric is---it is perfect for mild climate. The colors are fantastic and it's wonderful that J.Crew recognizes that not all boys have the same build. The pants are really a cut above.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lss1130 Versatile fall/winter cords
These pants are a versatile addition to our son's fall/winter wardrobe! He is very slender, so the slim fit option and standard adjustable waistband are life-saving. (The adjustable waistband also allows us to keep the pants in his wardrobe for a longer period of time...we just roll up the cuff if the pants are too long.) We purchased the cords in three colors because they are so cute. He has worn them rolled up with suede boots and they are adorable!
