Some shoppers have noted that since these shorts have a somewhat slim cut, it might be best to order a size larger to ensure a proper fit.

"These are very nice, and fit about how I expected. Not to loose, not too tight," another shopper wrote. "Results may vary for some, but in general the fit should cover all but either very muscular legs (cyclists, some swimmers/body builders) or overly plump physiques where there's more above the waistline should get the next size up. They feel very comfortable and useful for a wide range of uses, including casual and more dressy situations."

Another thing to remember before you order is that some of the colours may vary compared to the product photo online. Some shoppers have said that the navy blue looks more like a medium blue, but still a great colour to pair with T-shirts, polos and button downs.
