I want these - I'm gonna get the khaki, navy and ivy..... Are they really worth it?!
tell me they are! LOL
ETA - I'm talking about for Holden ... the ivy would go with that J&J pumpkin zipper pull sweater, as well as the other 2 J&J sweaters we have.

I just ordered some (in red!) and they will be here tomorrow - will post again when I have them.
*edited* to say that they arrived today and I really like them. The drawstring top is not the dressiest, but on casual days, they'll be just fine since ds keeps his shirts outside of his pants anyway (and not tucked in as I prefer). They also match the Ally/Hanna Christmas dress and that's why I ordered them although now I'm not sure how to make it work since the pants are not dressy and the dress is clearly so.

I have (okay--Josh has ;)) them in khaki, navy, and ivy. I'm not totally sure how if we'll keep them or not. Here's my mini-review on them:
Roomy enough to go over cloth diapers (similar cut to the Hippity Hop type of loose pants).
Very comfy in the waist (drawstring), so no pinching little tummies, And I would think comfortable enough to play around in everyday but still look nice.
What I'm NOT crazy about:
The fact that they are meant to roll up at the bottom and button in place. Therefor there is a button on the outside and inside, as well as a fabric loop to hold the cuff in place. It is kind of floppy and awkward when the pants are all the way down at their ankles. I am considering cutting off the fabric loop inside the pants leg, and removing the button. My my gosh...can I bring myslef to do that to $30 Hanna's pants?
Also, the corduroy is very fine and thinner than most, and I'm not sure how I like that. Wondering how well it will hold up after playtime and multiple washings.
So, I just ordered some cord pants from Lands End (love their Climber Pants!) and I'll compare the two brands when they arrive to decide what will stay and what will go.
