    I was actually excited about the reviews saying these were small, so I thought I 'd take a chance on it. When I got them, they looked exactly like the picture with long legs. The size 2's were huge for a 105lb 5'5" frame. The legs were so blousy it almost looks like a skirt. I like more form fitted shorts, so I was not a big fan of these. It gets two stars only because the material seemed light and nice...there was just a LOT of material.

    The picture of the shorts show a long pair, whereas, in reality, they are extremely short. I mean," Daisy Dukes". short. As a result, since they were for my 64 year old wife, I returned them,.

    Contrary to the claims in the catalog, these do NOT run large and do NOT have a 10 " inseam. They are mini- shorts.
    Expensive return policy discourages trying new products.

    Thought I was buying what was show in the picture. The shorts sent to me were the short/short I didn't notice on the description that it came in various lengths. Sending back these short/shorts. Would be helpful if the image was of the actual product.

    The only size available is "short" which is not what the picture indicates. The shorts seem of good quality, but I wouldn't have ordered them if I had understood they weren't like the picture.

    Despite what the description says, these shorts run really small. I'm normally an 8 so I ordered an 8, and they were way too small. I probably need a 12, but I'm not sure, so I decided to return instead of take the chance on ordering the wrong size again. Otherwise the shorts looked nice--good quality and well-designed pockets.

    These shorts are true to size and well made, however the pair I received flaired out at the legs - like wearing bell bottomed shorts!

    Maybe "cool" on someone, but not me!
