Reviewed by Joy P, Frugi Customer & Crusader
These trousers are absolutely beautiful; the embroidery is big and bold and shiny and has attracted glowing comments whenever my two-year old has worn them. They’ve got those Frugi details in too, I love the stitched-down corner of the pocket on the back and having the lining show at the bottom.
They get the thumbs-up for comfort from Abi too, being cosily lined and having toggles at the waist to get a good fit – a novelty for us, but since abandoning cloth nappies in the summer for grown-up trips to the bathroom, suddenly many things have been falling down.
The courdroy holds its shape very well, which means I haven’t ironed them yet despite many washings! It is great for turning up while the trousers are being grown into – a turn up holds all day without needing tacking into place, and it looks deliberate because of the lovely lining. The colours have also held excellently. There is one drawback, though, which is that the cords do attract fluff in the wash and it really shows on the Raisin colour. However, this may actually be a good thing, as they’ve been worn a lot as everyday trousers, whereas otherwise I might have kept them for best. And it would be a great shame not to flaunt these at every possible opportunity, given how lovely they are and how hard-wearing!
