These shorts are essentially old fashioned Bermuda shorts -- not necessarily swim shorts or beach shorts. If you take your swimming seriously, you these shorts will balloon up and slow you down in the water. They serve very well, however, as informal hot weather gear on the golf course, at the barbecue, on the patio or puttering around in warm weather. The plaid is a matter of taste -- if you like bold plaids for informal wear in the heat, this is fine, especially at the price. Just stay out of the water, especially if you are timing your laps.

Used these shorts for a week in Mexico, held up well in the pool and the ocean. I'm only 5'6 and these shorts came well past my knees but I was able to cut them and use a non sew hem I got a fabric store to make them look brand new.
