Rated 5 out of 5 by Zack New standard for shorts
Took a gamble on these and the 7" Reade shorts online, without trying any on. Fell in love with them as soon as I tried my pair on. I'm tall and exercise regularly, so I likely get a snugger fit than most individuals (for those of you also buying blind).
The materials are plush on the inside, durable on the outside yet managed to keep cool despite East Coast humidity. Taking the advice from the what-to-wear section, I got them in burnt henna to go with my several blue dress shirts.
Incredibly satisfied with the purchase, look forward to coming back for this style again next time I'm looking to purchase some shorts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jibs Good shorts even for dudes with athletic builds
I have some real big upper legs and butt from playing football and taking up eating as a hobby. These fit well and are not tight. They are also light enough for some solid summer wearing without getting things too hot. Length hits me right above the knee.. If you have goofy long legs go for the 11 inch option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by John Lightweight and comfortable.
These are nice summer shorts for being out and about - be it for a beach party or walking, enjoying the warm weather.
I ordered the canvas and the color is rather handsome. The only issue I have with it, if you order the canvas, is that it if it rubs against, say, a box or maybe books, they dirty easily. The material used - the light cotton as opposed the regular cotton used in other J. Crew shorts - might be the cause, so just be aware of that if you're ordering lighter colors of this version. Use darker colors if you are doing labor.
Overall, a great pair and I would recommend even with the minor shortcomings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carolyn Quality, comfortable, cool shorts!
Perfect for warmer weather, these are my son's shorts of choice. Wash and iron well (if you feel the need!), always look refined, yet very comfortable- never stiff. He just keeps adding to his collection every summer!
