Careful, that's after L took them up.
Bro used to pay me in chocolate to turn his trousers up to the right length. He had to try them on with every pair of shoes he owned to make sure they were *just* right. Meanwhile, I lay on the floor with the pins and moved them up and down by millimetres (and may have stabbed in the leg more than once).

They were a good two inches longer before I turned up the hem twice. Any shorter would guarantee having to let them down again before half-term.
Used Wundaweb last year - they can't be let down easily so it's needle and thread again.

We get a good two years out of school shorts. And normally he'd be wearing them this time of year but by God it's cold this September.
Doesn't he look like Linz?

So many people tell me. And I still can't see it very often!
How long before he's up to the next shelf on the bookcase? Is there a doorframe/wall with a set of marks on it?

There's a height chart in his bedroom but we've not checked lately.
We got him the 120cm size gi for judo and the legs are only just long enough, but it may have shrunk a wee bitty bit in the wash.
Those new trews say height 122 and have been taken up about 3.

The trews is fine. After all, he's not wearing shoes in that photo, is he. Once he puts them on he'll add the centiwotsit or so that he needs to straighten the legs.
