For the past few summers, the Cat & Jack brand at Target has put out a line of super comfy, good quality cotton blend shorts for boys. Priced at $7.00 each (or currently a 2-pack for $13.00), the price is very reasonable. My son likes to wear athletic shorts, and he also likes comfy cotton/knit shorts as well.
These shorts are pull-on. No buttons or fasteners! There is a functional drawstring, but my son just leaves it untied. And these shorts have pockets. Who doesn’t love pockets?
We have two pairs in a solid color. We have two pairs with a stripe on the side.
The shorts are pretty true to size. If you want them to be worn longer, go up a size. They will shrink slightly in the dryer, but I did not notice significant shrinking.
Tag says “60% Cotton/40% Repreve Recycled Polyester.” The shorts feel like a cotton blend knit short. They are sturdy and thick enough to look nice, but lightweight and comfortable enough for summer.
