Rated 2 out of 5 by momteacherfriend Bring back the old.....
I agree that the new style is cut just a bit more straight cut and shorter, which restricts movement when doing activities such as gardening, biking, chasing kids, etc. Please bring back the style from a few years back. i.e. the drawstring was more like a round lacing rather than a flat piece of material. These were the perfect shorts which I own (and know several others who also own) in every color. They're getting worn and I'd love to replenish in every color! Thanks for listening to a loyal customer!

I loved the old styling. I do a good bit of gardening and the old shorts were perfect in giving lots of freedom of movement. They were just the right length as well. The new ones are just too tight in the wrong places. Please consider bringing back the old style. Thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Michelle05 Don't like the new sizing and fit
I loved these shorts just the way they were. This year LLbean has decided to give them numerical sizes instead of the more general s/m/l. I don't understand why they couldn't leave well enough alone. The styling of these shorts does not lend itself to being more fitted. They are loose casual summer shorts. There are plenty of tailored and fitted shorts in the catalog. Why would you change a staple a lot of your customers reorder year after year. Please bring back your old sizing and fit. They were great shorts.

I have these shorts in every color they come in. My most recent pair, in navy, came in actual sizes; when I looked more recently, they seem to be S-M-L only. If you go by letter sizes, I'd say the shorts run big. I wear a 12, and a medium's fine. Anyway, I wear these shorts exclusively because they're both comfy and modest, but not bermuda-style that are long to the knee and then narrow on the thigh. I am 65 but I live in Savannah where it is hot and humid. These are perfect. I just want more colors, like white and black!

Stock up on what's left of these perfect flattering shorts! The new 2015 fit of the sunwashed shorts is no where near the same as this classic fit that has been a much-loved staple for years.. Sure hope Bean will bring these back in the many great colors available last year!

These shorts are my favorite! I have some old ones, the light green color, and are in great shape. I love the colors and hope to see more colors this season! I ordered a few of the last year colors just to have enough. Not sure of the new sizing-but will figure that out. Please offer more summer colors this season again.

I love these shorts. They are my summer uniform. They fit beautifully and, for me, have a flattering silhouette. I wear them when I'm out in the marsh checking turtle nests and they get ground in dirt and mud and salt water and I wash them and they come out looking great, though they eventually fade down to well washed and very soft.
They are also good looking enough to go out to a summer lunch.
My only quibble, is that there aren't enough colors. I miss navy and I'm not a huge fan of these pastels. Navy, tan khaki, a good cool red (not an orange red). And I would buy them all. Every year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luvbean41 wish they were longer
Love these shorts but would like to have them a bit longer so I could buy all the colours for golf -- just too short for a golf course but super comfortable -
