To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
EDIT: It's been a few years since I ordered the 32s and I have been slacking on bike riding since. I have gone up to size 36. I am planning to ride a lot this summer again so I decided to order one of these in 36 and also grabbed some new wrangler shorts in 36.
These in size 36 measure 36.5 while the 36 wranglers measure 38.5. 2 full inch difference is way bigger than I had with the only 1 inch difference in 32s with the Wranglers being worn out. I don't know if this inconsistent difference is on Dickies end or Wrangles end (or both) but I definitely think a size up is needed at 2 inch difference. It could however just be that wranglers run large and these are proper size, hence why I am telling the measurements. It makes sense to me that 36's should be about 36 inches, but I question a lot of the measurement systems we use sometimes.
Original: I measured my old worn out 32 Wrangler shorts and they have a circumference of 34 inches. Size 32 of these measures about 33 inches. They are admittedly smaller but these are new and my other shorts are worn out so I think they are likely fairly close to the same size when both new.
As for the length shown in the picture, that depends how tall you are and how high up you wear them. I got these for wearing on bike rides since I cant have bagginess in the crotch area when pedaling and regular shorts ride up to show over half of my thighs when worn up that high. These shorts stop right at my knees when worn this high.
Nice fit on my 11 year old son. He needed a pair of khaki cargo shorts for an event he was in and these pants did the trick. I love the straight out of the cleaners looks and feel to the Dickies Brand clothing and the fit is always very attractive. Will definitely purchase again and again!
Pretty disappointed. I've worn 32 waist for over 30 years but for some reason these Dickies were extremely tight. So bad that I couldn't zip them up or button them. I bought similar ones from Wal-Mart a year ago and it fit just right. I'll be sending them back. Get a size larger if you plan on buying them.
I bought these shorts for my son, and he loves them. The waist is probably smaller than most (which was good for him), but otherwise, very roomy, the way he likes them. I will buy another pair. Good buy!
