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.
These are supposed to be a 42 but are exactly the same size as my size 40 shorts. Also the belt is extremely short. The shorts fit but the belt is very difficult to do up. Size 42 shorts should come with an appropriately sized belt.
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 think I'm done trying to buy clothing on Amazon. The items I receive are never what I expect based on the description. I bought these shorts because a pair of the same model purchased 3 years ago have been my favorite. I loved those shorts because the many cargo pockets were protected by buttons instead of Velcro and there was the most perfect cell phone pocket on the right side. The shorts I received now use Velcro on half of the pockets. The "perfect" cell phone pocket is gone and was replaced by one that is too small even for an iPhone 6. These Lee shorts went from perfect to just ordinary and are no longer worth the price.
