Serendipity...

dek9 has been kind enough to pass along out-grown clothes from her daughter to my girls. Since she has way better taste than mine this has been a fine thing.
This morning I was poking through the closet looking for something to put on Lady Godiva. I came across a pair of cropped jeans in a 2t size that Dawn had bought on clearance and T had outgrown before she had a chance to wear. (Have I mentioned that the sizing of childrens' clothing is random and irrational?) They looked about the right size so I pulled them out and tried them on her. They fit perfectly. I turned them over to look for more tags and stickers (there seem to be a great many of tags and stickers on clothes these days.) and the butt was embroidered with flowers in EXACTLY the same colors as the shirt I had already put on her.
I bought that shirt at a totally different store, also on clearance,
because it was a 24 mo size bodysuit. (All part of my effort to keep clothes on the child.)

So now she has an outfit!
Sheer Luck!

www.ae.com goes down to a 26" inseam and has a 32 inseam. That, at least, isn't too huge to take in... http://www.ftmguide.org/shortmensclothes.html#jeans has some good tips for skinny guys.

The 26" waist only comes in a 28" inseam. The smallest pant with a 32" inseam is a 29" waist - his hips are 29".

I have ordered size 18 Slim pants with 32" inseam from Lands End (maybe my comments last year helped...). They will reportedly come with a 27" waist. If they fall down, I will take them to a tailor for alteration. I suspect, though, that Greg will just wear them as is; they'll be baggy but no one will notice.

uJeans will become an option once he stops growing.
