These are well crafted, all cotton shorts...they just wear and wear and wear. I have several pairs of these shorts in all different colors. I jumped at the chance to buy another color, "Sunset Ray"---a beautiful, light salmon color. Perfect for summer. The fit was as I'd hoped.. I'm very pleased. Thanks Gramicci for a well made product in a light and breezy color. . And thanks to Sierra Trading for having the product and promptly processing the order.

Some hears ago I bought a model with the same name and description but it came without a back pocket. However, the back pocket is not an issue.
What disappointed me was that the model I just got from you had a very high waist and it was much too tight around the waist.
The model I bought some years ago had a lower waste and was not so tight.

I now have 3 pairs of these shorts. Need I say more. The canvas is nice and thick. The waist is elastic. The pockets deep. The shorts are comfortable. They are a little snug on the waist. But once one, they fit really well.

It is very difficult to put these shorts on due to the lack of zipper and very narrow waist that gets stuck on the hips. The elastic doesn't expand enough. I had to pay for installation of zipper closure. Otherwise I couldn't use them.

These shorts are the most comfortable and durable shorts I have found anywhere. The fabric wears like iron and the workmanship is excellent (no missed seams, hanging threads, etc). The pockets are roomy and I never feel like things will fall out of them as I move around. The gusset makes it really easy to move around in them without the shorts feeling (or looking) baggy. I have a pair of these shorts that must be 20+ years old and they are just now starting to feel a little thin in places.

I have an old pair of the same shorts that are from YEARS ago, so I was expecting the same product. I remember my old ones also being very stiff when I first got them. I'm hoping that will go away with wash and wear. I had originally ordered the XS as that's what my old ones were, and that's how Gramicci describes they would fit me, as I am typically a 4. I returned them and have since received the S. The smalls definitely fit better, but they still feel like a different fit than my old ones. The crotch seems a bit low, so you have to wear them higher to have the crotch sit where you want. Otherwise, they seem great, and I'm excited to break them in!
