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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DLoveIII Good buy
These shorts fit wonderfully and the materials are sturdy. For those that are worried about these being too short or too baggy, take my word for it. The fit is simultaneously modern and classic. Worth the purchase.

I really like these shorts, they fit great and keep looking neat all day long. I have 8 pairs that I used to go to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pmcjr Very nice shorts
I have been suspect that the stain resistant cotton material now being used for LL Bean chinos would not measure up to the "old" cotton material used in years past. In fact, I have returned LL Bean chinos because I didn't like the feel. These shorts, however, have a natural cotton feel and are very nice. Mine are the classic cut and I really like the look. They are not baggy and fit me perfectly

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaxE190 Best Shorts!
I love these shorts, in fact the only ones I buy. Flying for a living, these shorts with the wrinkle resistant fabric is amazing for overnights. Theres nothing like finally getting to the hotel and not having to worry about ironing. They're comfortable too!

Not happy with my purchase of these shorts - I have two older pair before Bean went to wrinkle resistant fabric and wish I had purchased more back then.

You always carry Navy and Green, but neither color coordinates as well as a black shorts do with your tops.
