more pants, and a quandry

More summer pants for Joseph.  They are navy blue linen, despite the fact that the weird light is making them look like a cheesy royal blue.  I want to make them look vaguely nautical (kind of like the adorable sailboat pants by Oliver & S), and I'm considering adding these brass buttons.  The problem is that I'm not sure that such a fancy-pants detail won't look silly, considering that he's going to be wearing them with stained t-shirts featuring dogs in hats, and that sort of thing.  Also considering that the buttons are ancient and probably contain lead and will almost certainly be pulled off and eaten.

Looks like I've decided against the buttons.  But I'll definitely add pockets.  In a world where "definitely" means "perhaps sometimes before he outgrows them."
