Verified Buyer Reviewed by Natalie from Montana on Wednesday, May 31, 2017these wool shorts are adorable , I got the longer version , as pictured . they ARE itchy tho , not like your Merino wool long underwear . I actually was expecting the same feel , but there are retings on Merino wool , like fine super fine , these must be medium (?). I had to order some silk bloomers to wear under them !! I tested them , with the silk long underwear I own , after I could not wear them 5 minutes without a liner of some sort . I still really like them tho . the price was so bearable !! I do recommend these wool shorts .
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Outdoor Enthusiast from Colorado on Tuesday, January 31, 2017These are very nice shorts for those who want natural fiber and durability. I am 5'5 130#, not very curvy in my hips, and usually wear a size 26 in skinny jeans. I bought the 28 after reading reviews, and it is perfect.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jeanne from Texas on Wednesday, August 31, 2016Well constructed, smooth fit but runs small for size. Wool does feel itchy, may be alright if the fit was looser.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Allie Walker from Alabama on Tuesday, August 16, 2016I bought these shorts in a size 28 in the cabin color and they fit fine. Then I ordered a pair in the lighter tan color and they were HUGE (falling off). I could not figure out what was wrong with the sizing, but then I noticed that the light tan pair buttoned on the opposite side. I honestly think they were men's shorts that were mislabeled as women's. I still don't understand how a size 28 (I assume that means a 28" waist) wouldn't fit, whether it was men's or women's, but the sizing on this pair was wrong. But the shorts themselves are cute, and I love my cabin-color pair in size 28. Just beware if you get a really odd-sized pair that it may be an error in labeling or sizing.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Allie Walker from Alabama on Wednesday, August 3, 2016These shorts are a nice shorter length. I got the cabin color...the fabric looks almost like tweed or some other "dressy shorts" fabric, but the cabin color is casual enough that they're fine for hiking or more casual endeavors. I was unsure about what size to order, so for others who might be uncertain: I'm 5' 3", 115 lbs. My "natural waist" (i.e. the smallest part) measures about 26-27", but I often wear jeans in a 29 waist. I originally ordered the 29, but they were too big. The size 28 fits with a little breathing room, but without being too loose/baggy.

“Hi , I wear a size 4 , in about every brand out there , Toad , North face Royal Robbins , but I have Patagonia pants that seem the same size , one is a 28 , and one is a 29 . They fit the same , so I am not sure what to order in these , Via Shorts , I weigh 122 , and am 5 foot 41/2 inches tall. what would you say is a size 4 ? in these shorts , or suggest a size for me ? ”
The sizing on these is in inches around the waist. It would be best to measure your waist, then you could make a more accurate purchase.
