Rated 4 out of 5 by FREEGUCCI Great short, but you get what you pay for
I own four pairs of the varick short. The salt, british khaki, navy, and blue. And they look great first of all. I love the fit, the leg opening is just slim enough but also has some give to it if you're gifted in the thigh area. But my main problem is that after maybe three months or so, you can tell this is definitely JCF quality and not J. Crew. The buttons' threading starts to come loose and is very easy to completely pull off, which is an easy fix. My navy shorts having been bought in april are beginning to slightly fade in certain places (pockets, zipper, hemline). But I mean if you wait at the right time for a sale and maybe have an extra coupon, nothing can beat the Varick in style and bang for buck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nick Great pair of shorts!
Great fit for those who have done a few squats and have the thighs and glutes to show for it. Comfortable for all day wear.

Fit really well, but they're a tiny bit big in the waist. I love the length. It's almost impossible to find shorts under 9 inches in length. They're short but not Euro short. I also like that they don't flare out at the bottom. My only non-positive comment is that they are called "broken in," but the fabric is actually relatively stiff. I mean, not cardboard but "broken in" is not an adjective I would use to describe the material.

Athletic build with muscular legs. These shorts are awesome. Love the fit of these since shorts usually parachute outward at other retailers I have bought from. The only gripes, first the texture and material, they are very reminiscent of American work wear pants. It's semi rigid with the slanted cotton textile that is usually found on work wear definitely not soft. The next thing would be the colors. I got 5 pairs all different colors, and the colors were muted borderline slate. They were not as vibrant in person as they were on the screen. Even with these reservations, at this price point and style, 5 stars!

These "Broken-In Varick" shorts are the perfect piece for every spring or summer occasion. They can be dressed down with a comfortable t-shirt or dressed up for the perfect prep look with a nice polo or button down.
