Rated 4 out of 5 by BuckeyeCS Great summer shorts
Other than finding these shorts a size too small for me (I exchanged a pair of 34's for 35's), I really like these shorts. The fabric is lightweight, but durable, the colors do not fade with repeated washing, and they look great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by andy1234 Too big around waist
Agree with other reviewers. Ordered a 35 inch waist. It says 35 on the tag but they are huge. Guessing they are around 38-39 so will need to return

Just received them in the mail today. Great quality that I've come to expect from LL Bean. I like to read all the reviews on products before I purchase and in this case I'm glad I did. A few reviewers wrote these shorts waist size runs large, they recommended ordering a size smaller than what you normally wear. Im between 35-36 so I ordered a 34 and I have room to spare they are loose at 34. But they are great quality and great looking shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dradin Great Lightweight Shorts
I'm very happy with these. They're nice and lightweight without feeling flimsy. They could be a touch shorter, but overall very good. Comfortable without looking shabby.

Rated 4 out of 5 by alkinet Careful with the seams
Im a bigger guy, so it could be me. First, love the feel of the shorts. Super soft, worn in feel. I can already tell that the seams along the back going down between legs are starting to fray after only 2 wears. Worried that they will split at a most inopportune time. Going to try and reinforce with the wifes sewing machine as I love the look and feel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KBeaner size way off
I know LL Bean describes these shorts as sitting below the waist, but the 32 waist that I ordered was literally so oversized that I could scrunch up 3 inches of fabric at the waist to get these shorts to fit like a normal pair of loose shorts or jeans.
Come on, LLB. get the sizing a little more consistent and right, will ya?

Rated 5 out of 5 by jwynia Comfortable and cool
I bought a pair of these and then another and then another. Nice light weight fabric that is perfect for the Arizona heat. They seem very durable, taking a lot of abuse from my active lifestyle. The waist does seem to run large on these. Normally I take a 32" waist. I had to exchange my first 32" for a 30" which fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OceanStorms Thought I was seeing stars...
From the reviews, that is. They were all so positive I had to see for myself. I'm a skeptic. Recently retired, I don't play golf, go to Florida, or wear a hat. Maybe all of that will change now! There was great attention to detail, fabric and fit in these. I know only of 6" inseams. I ended up sizing the waist down because of the Standard Fit and this worked perfectly. The button matches the paants and is sewn well, however I had ideas of a shiny nickel rivet. I took a surprizing chance that won!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HardtoFitFamily Finally a Pair He Likes
After years of trying every name brand on the market, my husband loves these! He's asking for another pair - which I am happy to purchase. They are light weight, well constructed and the length is true to size. Hubby has thin legs and these look great on him. Thanks LL Bean.

This is my second pair, ordered immediately after wearing the first pair for golf and seeing how well they laundered. Great light weight. Even better not to be 100% linen.
