Rated 5 out of 5 by ShortJoe Great fit, comfortable, good length for short legs
I will be buying every color LLBean can come up with in this short. I measure 38in waist, but by advise from another review ordered a 37in waist. The all over fit is perfect for my body. Trim lines, no baggy leg or rear. The fabric and fit gives the short a dressier look, although I will wear them golfing too. LLBean is the best source for 6 in inseam shorts.

Bought two pair for my hustand and he loves them! They fit perfectly and don't wrinkle or get sloppy looking. Will buy more in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by wardo Not quite finished
I am disappointed that the top front pockets are no sewn leaving a hole that can be torn rather easily.
Your light-weight tropical shorts have the pocket completely sewn shut.

Rated 4 out of 5 by adrondax Nice short, but...
In the early to mid Aughts, LLB's quality went down and I began buying elsewhere. One manufacturer sold a trouser with the hidden comfort waist, but not a short.
When I saw the short available at LLB - and at a very reasonable price - I bought a pair for evaluation. I wore it for about two weeks. I purchased a size down and found the fit excellent. The material is good as well. Soon after, I ordered two more pair, in other colors.
However, I have one complaint. the buttons are cheap. Not long after i placed the second order, the button snapped in two as I was closing the shorts. Two days later, the stitching failed and the button cam off completely. Now I am faced with a dilemma - to return the shorts for full refund or to replace the buttons with something of quality.
I'll choose the latter due to the excellent fit..

Rated 3 out of 5 by jwh44 No longer carry the pleated version?
I was disappointed to find that the pleated version is no longer carried in the 8" inseam. For me, the 6" inseam is too short; I also like the look of the pleated version better than the plain front version.

Having just lost a lot of weight I had no shorts which fit. A regular LLBean customer I decided to give these a try and love them. Shorter than most - which I like - and with that great expandable waist line, I liked the first pair I tried so much I've ordered three more. Great item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NapervilleRon Nice, But Run Big
The shorts are nice, but I was surprised that they run so big. I ordered my normal size -- which normally is a bit snug -- and they won't even stay up around my waist (I probably will have to go down one, maybe two, full sizes).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shortsshopper1862 "Nice shorts"
I'm in the same prediciment as the AtlantaBuyer I'm 5' 10" tall; Short legs with a long torso. These shorts are good I have them w/6" inseam but I wish you made them with a 4" or 3" inseam then I would consider them "shorts" ; the flex waist band is fantastic it gives you great flexiblity for climbing, bending, etc.. I don't have to pull them up before I climb so they don't drag or grab on the front of my thighs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AtlantaLLBeanBuyer Great Quality, Comfort, & Price
I have been looking for comfortable high quality shorts that don't go below my knees which is hard to find these days. I am neither short or tall (5'11") and have a hard time finding shorts that don't go below my kness. These are the perfect length at 8" and they offer 6" shorts for those with even shorter legs. The other great thing about these shorts are the comfort waste band offered with this product. I am in between sizes so if I order my normal size they are a little tight and if I order the next size up they are way too big. The comfort waste design makes them fit perfectly and very comfortably without showing. I would also recommend the comfort waste design to anyone who would be doing alot of bending or moving like hiking or even playng a round of golf. The deep pockets are also a very nice addition. I know this product is new but I hope you keep making these shorts for a long time because once others try them I know they will like them as much as I do. I will be ordering more. Great job!
