Nice shorts but size issues

Verified Buyer Reviewed by sparklepup from Pittsburgh on Monday, June 1, 2015
I got a pair of these in Stone from STP last summer. Very lightweight, non-wrinkle. 2 zippered front pockets, good for travel. Waist is comfortable and stretchy with its elastic back. Ordered L and XL; the XL fit and the inseam was 6" . So ordered same item number 7653A in Indigo a few weeks ago, again in XL. Waist was 1" bigger, making it too big, and inseam was 9" (STP says inseam is 4"). I could live with the longer inseam and exchanged for a L. Waist too small. Exchanged for Bark in XL, hoping the previous too-big Indigos were an aberration. Right! Bark XL fit. But all 3 recent pair had 9" inseams. Even STP's picture looks longer than 4" inseam to me. So it's a lottery, and if you win (that is, get the right size), these shorts are very nice.
