Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVERofPAPILLONS THE BEST SHORTS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NEVER STOP MAKING THESE SHORTS! These are the ONLY shorts I wear. I have bought these for the last 10+ years and order about 4-5 pairs every year! Once again, PLEASE MAKE THEM IN BLACK! I live in Florida and wear them year round. Going on a cruise in October and sat down at my computer to order the latest colors and they are no longer available! Please bring them back in all your classic colors, BLACK, and your newest colors. And don't wait until next spring. Great fit; could be an inch shorter. HINT FOR OTHER WEARERS: Tuck the tie inside your shorts and you won't see them under your shirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KathleenB pretty dark rose color
I bought size small. They are fine, but not as loose as the old ones I have from a couple of years ago. My old ones have a sweatpants rope pull. They are still in excellent condition even though they've been washed many times. The new ones have a shoelace type of pull. They are skimpier than my old ones. I've washed them once, and they did fine not like another review I read. I'm glad to have them, love the color. But, the quality is not as good as my old ones.

by ldinTenessee Chambray - discoloration after washing
I first bought two pair of these shorts about 2 years ago and loved them - very comfortable, loved the fit and the color, wore them all the time in summer. However, after gaining some weight over the winter, I needed a larger size. So I ordered 4 new pair. I washed the shorts with like colors, per instructions, in cold water. However, when I removed them from dryer, there were splotchy discolorations on all four pair. Because they are so comfortable to wear, I kept them to wear around the house or working in the yard, but wish now I'd returned them. I was very disappointed about the discoloration in the new pairs, because I wore the original pairs everywhere! Probably won't be ordering these shorts in the chambray color again, even though I love the color and the comfortable fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Motherbrown Great color, fit and fabric in these shorts.
I love these shorts and should have ordered them a lot sooner. The fit is perfect for me and I like the lightweight fabric for summer. I think I may have to order the long and cropped pants as well as another pair of shorts! Extremely comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OHGal1953 Nice shorts
I like these shorts. The fit is true to size. The rise and length are great, even for non-petite sizing. I'm not a tall gal, and they hit me mid-thigh, right where they should, instead of dangling down around my knees like most shorts do. The lighter fabric washes well and doesn't wrinkle badly. The ONLY thing I didn't like about them (and the ONLY reason I scored them less than 5 stars) was that somebody decided a good place to sew the very scratchy LL Bean logo and size tags was on the inside of the front right pocket, right in the middle, where it rubs you in the belly. Those scratchy tags nearly drove me crazy; I finally had to take a seam ripper to them and remove them. Ahhhhhhh. Once I got those tags out.....perfect shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrabbyChristie Good looking and comfortable.
Casual and cute, these flatter my lumpy figure. The drawstring adjusts the fit while the elastic keeps it flexible.
Most shorts that fit at my (so-called) waist balloon out into clown pants by the time they reach my thighs. Not these. I'm 5' 3", so many shorts are too long for my legs. These are just right.
For some reason, I'm only being allowed to review the Chambray version, but this applies also to all the the Sunwashed Canvas Shorts. Just noticed that more colors are now available, so ordered some a few minutes ago.

Rated 4 out of 5 by aqfa Nice fit but
These fit quite well. In particular, unlike some pairs of shorts I have tried recently, they aren't baggy in the seat. However, the rise is misdescribed. The description says that these are classic fit, with the "waist" band at the natural waist. This is inaccurate. The band hits me about an inch above my waistline. Fortunately, there is enough elastic that this isn't uncomfortable, but I would much prefer something lower.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nicks Not for me
I thought the thin waist band was uncomfortable and the cut in the rise was short or something was not right. Nice fabric but the fit was odd.

Just ordered my second pair. Very comfortable and wash up great. Like the elastic waist and big pockets.
