More Flattering, Less Functional

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Polly Prissypants from Jacksonville, FL on Wednesday, August 1, 2012
When these shorts arrived, I was disappointed because they didn't really look like the photo. I expected something cut more like gym shorts. When I put them on, I was very disappointed because they're cut so much closer to the body than Original Gs. The wonderfully deep side pockets are shallower, too.

After I wore them for a walk, I felt a little better about them; they are comfortable. They look durable and have washed well. The pockets are O.K. Ultimately I still prefer the Original Gs, though.

I recommend them if you're willing to sacrifice some of the functionality of the originals for a more flattering cut.
