Rated 4 out of 5 by mtkiddo Great - except for one thing.
I bought 2 pairs of these shorts for my husband about 2 years ago: khaki and navy - in the 6 inch length. They are totally wrinkle free and always look nice. It is difficult to find men's shorts in this (6 inches) shorter length. One huge problem is with the khaki shorts. They are fraying very badly at the bottom hemline. This is very disappointing considering how great they are in every other way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by siestasand A workhorse! great durability. Great fit.
I wear them daily. Retired, Fla, Gulf Coast. Works great for almost all occasions. Very comfortable, durable, great looking. Just wish they would consider a couple of tropical colors- aqua green, flamingo pink.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rch4n Great shorts. Disappointed they are made in China.
I have no gripe about the quality of the shorts - they are comfortable, look good, and seem to be durable. This is the first pair of LL Bean shorts I've bought and I am now a fan.
One of the reasons I like LL Bean is they are an American company that advertises that (some of, apparently) their products are made here. Not the case with these shorts, and that is disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CaucusShopper Button Whole To Small
This short is a failure: The button is to big to fit in the button hole. In about 3 weeks the button falls off because it is being pulled at to much to get it in the button hole.
I bought these one time before and I forgot that I had the same problem. Never again will I purchase these

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cinlynn colour fades quickly
This is a great wearing short. They look terrific on men with shorter legs and they wear well - except the darker colours fade very quickly. My husband wears them everyday (avid golfer) and finds them very comfortable. Unfortunately the navy blue colour fades after about 10 -12 washings and therefore they don't look as crisp as they would otherwise. I have dyed his two pairs of dark shorts twice now but the colour doesn't hold. The two khaki pair hold their colour and shape well and always look nice and crisp.

by CharlieGator They're All I Wear
I live in Florida. About Nine months out of the year this is all I put on my body. I like how they look. This may sound vain, but I think they make me look a little trimmer. I don't know how water resistent they are, an advertising feature. I don't care. They're cotton. I just ordered my 7th and 8th pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by girlfromsouth Nice looking shorts, OK quality
I bought this shorts for my husband, and he liked a lot.
It looks good and feels very comfortable.
However, after 2 washes, one of the belt loops came off. After a month or so, the back pocket wears a tiny whole.
It's not a big deal, but expected better quality from LL Bean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by goducks3620 great shorts for warm climates
Nice fabric for shorts, not too heavy, and the fit is not baggy. More importantly, they are available in 6" inseams. I'm 5'7 & ~160 lbs, and I've finally caught on that knee length 9"+ shorts are not flattering for guys under 5'9" or so. These hit below mid thigh but several inches above my knee, and paired with a trim fit polo & a pair of boat shoes, they really look great and are cooler than longer shorts anyway. These are basically the same length & style shorts I wore in the late 1980s before everyone starting wearing them so long...

Rated 5 out of 5 by kierandh Old pair wore out, new pair is even better
I got my first pair (Navy, 6") in 2012, and they were my favorite pair of shorts until the butt wore out in 2015. I'm a cyclist, and I guess the wear and tear from being on a bike regularly did them in.
L.L. Bean gladly replaced them, and my new pair feels more durable than the last one. They've increased the cotton strength without compromising softness, pliability, or comfort.
These shorts are more comfortable, more durable, better fitting, and better looking than any shorts I can find for the same price?or much more. They're just as great in town and in the office as they are outdoors. Excuse me while I order a second pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Seve2125 Quality golf short
I purchased these in both khaki and navy. These are nice shorts that fit well and are the perfect length for golf. The only downside to these is that is seems they wear out in the butt/hip after about a year or so.
