Nice fabric and style but terrible fit

These shorts have durable fabric with lots of pockets. However, the fit is VERY strange. I ordered these for my husband, who is very lean. He normally wears a 32 waist or size M. He could not button these pants around his waist they were so snug. Additionally, the leg bands were extremely tight. However, the pant legs were lose and long. We also ordered a large, which did fit his waist. However, the leg bands on the liner were still very tight. I took scissors and slit the elastic in 3 places so they would fit better. Again, the legs were baggy and long. I may try to alter them later. We kept the pants in spite of the bad fit because my husband really liked the style, with zipper pockets and stretchy durable fabric. The padding in the liner is also decent. They could have been a great short had someone taken the time to confirm waist size and leg circumference before manufacturing these shorts.
