I haven't purchased their pants. I have quite a few tops. The color stays well, the seams stay flat and straight and they have a high end, "shiny" look, no matter how many washes.
That said, they are pricey. American Apparel has the same look for much less but no cute appliques. I like Boden sweaters but the knit dresses have pilled a bit. No real problem there but the resale value on pilly clothes is low.
I have many adult Boden skirts and they are totally awesome.
Worth it? Depends how important cuteness is to you.
