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.
Love these shorts. I'v purchased a pair from this seller before and still have them. The reason for only a 3 star rating is this pair (the same size as the previous pair) is less generous in the crotch making them somewhat uncomfortable while sitting down.
I've been wearing khaki shorts for some 20+ years, so I've gone through a lot of shorts. These particular shorts feel strong, yet also soft and comfortable.
Some reviewers said you should buy a size larger than you require, and I'm glad I took their advice. I normally take size 34, but I bought size 36 of these shorts. They left some room, but that's better than being too tight. A bit roomy is no problem, as these shorts come with a belt.
I liked these shorts so much, I bought a second pair after a few weeks. That way I'll always have one available if the other pair is hang-drying after the wash. (In my experience, most clothes will last longer if you hang dry rather than use a dryer.)
These shorts were a great buy. I'm 6' tall and about a 35" waist. I purchased the 36" waist and they hit right at the middle of the knee and the waist size is very comfortable. They fit as expected. The overall construction of these jeans is high quality and I would feel comfortable going on a hike wearing them.
The variety and placement of the pockets offer a convenient place to store belongings on the while on the go. My nexus 5 fits perfectly in the main pockets without feeling like it will fall out when I sit down.
Summary: Great buy - Would buy again. Loose fitting but not baggy. Roomy pockets for storage.
Purchased two pair. Both fit well, and have ample room where you need it. Not a slim-fit short nor very loose. Could wear them on the beach and for golfing. They are casual enough, yet throw on a collared shirt and wear them out to dinner. The pocket seams appear strong and well sown. Also, the pockets are deep. The belt is of good quality. The colors appear strong. I like the way shorts fit and recommend them. For once, I picked my waist size and the product is correct. I'll buy more.
The khaki color is definitely not khaki. I love the shorts, but the color is way darker than the image. I don't know if this is a mistake on their part or what, but I did not receive khaki. It's way closer to tan.
Sometimes these shorts come to fit and other times not so much. There is a difference in size already with the 34 to 36 gap. I get 36 with these shorts and sometimes I take them back because they are too big. Contacted Lee about this. They said they could be 1" difference so your 36 might be a 37 or a 35. I found usually bigger than expected. Sometimes you get some that fit other times they are quite baggy which I do not like. The belt needs to take up too much slack and they kind of appear somewhat foolish instead of fitting. Looks like hand me downs that don't fit quite right or fall off easily without a belt. I like the make. I like the quality. I don't like the sizes sometimes. I've got at least 5 pair and would like more. I shopped online which is kind of hard to return things or at kohls for this item. You can find it on lee's web site too but not usually for a great price. They bug me with size fit, size selection, colors, new colors, and price. Definitely look better than what you find at walmart or kmart as long as you can get them to fit right. Those run about $17 where these are more and from 19 at a great price but usually 21 or 22 at a good price but as high as 30 or 35. JCP also has them so you can find them almost anywhere. Sears as well. Their prices usually aren't so great though. I wanted the black and white camo one's but for some reason did a limited run on those. (ie shinner camo). Also, these are kind of hot in the summer with all the pockets. They had another pair called rocker shorts maybe 2 years ago and these had less pockets and one layer. I liked these much better. They have some that are cheap as well but the rocker one's I liked. Same thing with pattern but less heat and weight because of the cargo extra pocket layers.
