Anyway, now that it's harder to find things in his size at the thrift store, plus me not having much time to shop, I would really like to find one or two brands that I can order on-line for his pants/shorts. I have had good luck with tops from LandsEnd (some really good sales early this fall on some gorgeous clothes that seemed to have a more traditional fit) but I have not tried their pants.

RE OK, I had forgotten about them. He had some cute stuff as a baby (thrift) but nothing now. I think we have an outlet around here.
my youngest dd is 2 1/2 & also 24 lbs.
i dont like overalls because she is potty trained & cant get them off
old navy's adjustable waist pulled all the way in are still a bit big..but work ok..
childrens place with AW fit good & i love childrens place because they dont get knee holes
& gymboree opened a new store called crazy 8
these fit my girl the best, but theres limited selection
osh kosh are huge in our experience
target carries adjustable waist slim circo's in larger sizes.. my oldest dd also requires all her pants to be adjustable waist..
but i didnt look for 2T size
I have girls, so it might be different, but Osh Kosh stuff is HUGE. I can't keep the pants up to save our lives.
We had luck at Sears w/DS when he was younger in their fleece pants.
And Old Navy--- if you can get slim fit w/adjusters.
We buy a lot of Old Navy and Baby Gap with the adjustable waists. Gymboree has true, working draw strings once you get into their "big boy" sizes (3-10, I think) and adjustable waists. They are a bit long, but ds can fit into a 3 with the waist pulled in a bit. An employee also told me the big boy sizes that coinside with toddler sizes (3 vs. 3T, 4 vs. 4T, etc) are cut more slender b/c they don't expect those kids to wear diapers.

My 9 yo dd wears a 12slim and can't keep them up. I figure the sag is okay because that is what is keeping them long enough. My 11 yo ds makes her look full figured. A couple years ago I called land's end for sizing help and they said to go based on the chest measurement which put ds in a 24 month or 2T. I ordered 10/12 based on height. Oh, how I wish I shared their problem.
My favorite places to get leggings:
I like the osh kosh overalls best, especially the old school ones (without snaps in the crotch). I get them on ebay.
Mindfully mothering SIX kids (ages 5, 6, 8, 9, 11 & 11) in a small house with a lot of love.
This is totally random, but DS has this pair of what looks to be handmade pants from the thrift store that have a tag on them that says "Kids by Design -- Montana" -- they are awesome but I have googled that company and never came up with anything. Anyone heard of it?
Target clothes seemed to work for my skinny (but we mostly used their t-shirts). Now he is wearing a Sears brand that is 7X slim AND we have to adjust the waist another 3-4 inches! ALthough he has grown taller again and will probably be in 8 or 9 slims (and sucked up ).
They're not typos. . . I can't spell!
