Need a 2nd Pair

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these for my dad and he lives in them. He says they fit true to size and he loves the fit (hits just above the knee) and fabric is light-weight and looks good casually as well as dressed up.

Good shorts, but returned them.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 30

The fit and look of these shorts are pretty good, however, I ended up returning them. I was comparing these shorts directly to the Kuhl Ramblr's and the Ramblr's ended up fitting and looking just a little better. I'm pretty short and wide, so that might be the reason. These shorts just seemed a little more form fitting than I was expecting. Despite all this, if these shorts were my only option, I would be happy with them, just not as happy as the alternative.
