Here's an email that I received from a mom who is having a tough time finding shorts that fit her young son:
I'm trying to find some size 4 slim shorts for my son, preferably canvas, twill, or denim. Size 4 regular will definitely fall off - even the adjustable waist kind. I was able to find 4S jeans that fit at JC Penney's last fall, but so far I haven't had much luck with finding shorts. When I was looking for jeans last fall I did check the re-sale shops first and was told that finding that size re-sale was next to impossible, so I bought the jeans new when I found them. I could cut them down and hem them if I have to, but I really don't want to do that. Jeans are a bigger bother than most things to hem. Any hints your readers may have will be helpful.
