    My son needs elastic pull-on pants. He is a husky 14. He has special needs and needs the pull-ons. There are few options available. Any tips on increasing the hip and waist in the sandbox pants?

    the sandbox pants only go up to a size 8, but the Parachute and Art Museum go higher, but only to size 12. You’ll want to add crotch depth as well as width so that when they are worn, the pants don’t ride up or down. Something that looks fine standing still quickly becomes a problem when boys move!
    Looking at size charts, a size 14 boys is about equivalent to a size 33-34 mens… I have used Burda 7230 for relaxed-look elastic and drawstring waist pants in this and bigger sizes. They work out well in various fabrics as long as they aren’t too heavy… Ponte de Roma is a good choice for more dressed-looking pants that are still comfortable like sweats.
    another option is the Field trip cargo pants, in twill or canvas, but simplified a little, like these: climbers
