Durable cotton, true to size, stylish cut, though a tad fitted at the waist, which shows my muffin top (I am 5'8", size 10, so, fairly lean except for some belly fat, age 50). They do stretch out a little as they are worn, but then they fall down on my hips. The pockets and the one-inch hem have four lines of stitching, which gives the shorts a little personality, but if dried in the drier, the hem turns up. When this happens, I spray them with a little water and let them dry flat. If I don't use the drier, I just lay them flat and pull the hem straight to prevent it from turning up. Light ironing would work too. Despite these minor issues, these are my favorite shorts right now, since I haven't found anything better in this style. I would love to see a little higher or a little looser waist.

I usually wear a 10-12 and these fit me well in a size 10. They do not pinch the thighs or ride up the in the crotch... the famous Gramicci promise that is certainly true with these shorts. I am not a fan of my thighs and still feel comfortable wearing these shorts out in public. A nice change from my long bermudas. The shorts, on me, do not look as 'short' as they do on this model. The stretch is perfect. Fabric is soft yet sturdy.
