I have bought a lot of my older sons jean shorts from Dillards. I really like the Class Club brand. They always have a wide variety of kids clothing to choose from, whether you are looking for a polo shirt, khakis, jeans, shorts, or t-shirts. They are durable, affordable, and do not seem to lose their color from washing. This pair is just a plain button dark denim. It has two pockets in the front and no pockets in the back. They have the elastic stretch able waistband and loops for a belt if you need it. I wish they had the adjustable waistand (like Old Navy clothing) but they do not. The jean material is made from 100% cotton. Sometimes Dillards will also have really good clearances on all their clothing. I have also seen this brand at my local resale shops gently used for $5.99. Young boys grow so fast that it is hard to keep them in one size for too long. I personally am always on the lookout for affordable, nice quality clothing. I would recommend this brand to anyone
Update On Feb 15, 2009: Sorry the particular jean shorts shown are the ones that just look like they button and zip up but they actually do not. My son owns a few of both kinds.
