These jeans are by far the best price, and best quality of any we've purchased for our son who is an all boy kid. The knees of his jeans are usually the first thing to go, but these stand up very well. The material is thicker and much sturdier than other higher priced jeans we've bought in the past. The elastic in the back waist make them the best fit for a little boy who is built slim. We couldn't be more pleased with the price and quality of jean. I'll keep buying this brand as long as he's a boy.
