Rated 5 out of 5 by juliejellybean from Really nice shorts I bought these shorts last yr as well but prefer this yrs style. They have a smidge more body to them... not sure how to describe it..but they wash beautifully without wrinkles and shrinkage. They sit slightly below the waist so they are not binding but high enough so no muffin top. I also bought the bermuda shorts that are same style, just longer. Worth every penny! I am really pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bttraitz from A Trick if You're inbetween Sizes I absolutely love these shorts and am happy that L.L. Bean is making Chinos. They're incredibly soft and the colors are great. I purchased 4 pairs and am considering getting the last color as well. I wish they would make these in white, but I'll keep checking back because I know colors are sometimes added. I did have a hard time with sizing, but that is because I typically fall between sizes in clothing, especially in Chinos. I think these fit true to size, but if you're like me, I tried something that worked to get a perfect fit for my body. The size 2 felt a little too tight and the size 4 felt a little too big, so seeing that these are 97% cotton, I decided to go with the 4's and shrink them. I did this by washing and drying them on the hot heat setting and the 4's shrunk to the perfect fit for my body. I don't believe L.L. Bean recommends washing them this way so I was definitely taking a risk, but I am happy with the result and wanted to share in case someone else wants to give it a go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tahoegirl from Great shorts A perfect fit. I would never normally spend this much for a pair of shorts, but I knew I would get a quality pair of shorts and that is what these are. They are well made and a heavier material than what you normally find with shorts. They are most likely going to last forever. I purchased the navy and turned right around and ordered the sea grass. It it so difficult to find shorts that are an appropriate length without looking frumpy and these fit the bill; the 6 inch length is perfect. I would love to see more colors like black, light gray and dark gray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bee2 from Very happy with these shorts The fit of these shorts were great for me. They look good on and they are really comfortable. I liked them enough to order a second pair. Colors of the Mineral Red and Celestial Blue are as seen online and in the catalog. I typically wear size 14 in llbean pants and these fit as expected. The quality is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CarrieDee from Waist too big I bought one size up from my jean size. They fit well but the waist is big and gaps in the back and my jean size would be too tight. The back pockets are functional and these shorts are very cute rolled up to 4". I'm definitely buying the other colors. I'm glad the fit improved over last year's chino shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Caas from nice shorts I got this just to try after searching for shorts that are waist high rather than lower riding. These say they fall below the waist and perhaps they do for some, but I found them to be close enough to my true waist that they fit the bill perfectly. No muffin top!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLFAN from perfect The fit is perfect. No pinching and the added stretch makes these shorts super comfortable. They are a tiny bit loose at the waist but the hip/butt area fit perfect. Pockets are nice and deep and fit a iphone 11. I will purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QuiltBakeMom from Nice fit! I ordered several shorts to try. This one was the winner. The fit is comfortable, leaning toward the looser side of the sizing. The fabric is substantial, and all of the pockets are deep enough to be useful (my iPhone 6 fits in the front). The waist sits slightly below my belly button, at just the right height, neither too low nor too high. I prefer shorts with a 4.5" - 4.75" inseam, so I did redo the hems. Now they are just right for me. These might be a good length on a taller lady, but on me they looked dumpy at the 6" length. I ordered several colors of this short. The red was my favorite! Unfortunately, by the time I decided that I liked the red enough to order a second pair, that color was all sold out. There is twill tape at the top of the back welt pockets. This is a nice feature, and it keeps the top edge of the pocket from stretching out. The twill tape is also used to anchor the front button. Again, a nice touch, since the tape is sturdier than thread (there is only one button at the waist, no second button on the interior side for security). LLBean, you got the styling/fabric just right on this short. It was a strange year, so I'll forgive you for running out of my favorite color so early in the season. Please make the red again next year, and I'll buy another pair! A medium grey and an earthy bark/taupe color would be nice too!!
