Clean look, feel
These are nice. No way around that. Definitely no knee coverage for those looking for longer board shorts... Plus side is my upper thighs won't be as blindingly white as they've been in prior summers!
Haven't worn them in the wet stuff yet, but the look and the feel of these already makes them a winner. Very comfortable, soft feel. They look even better than in the pictures, but no surprise there.
Sizing: True to size, but likely order down if you are between sizes. I'm usually a 31 in jeans, and I got a 30 inch waist in these bad boys. Better for them to stay on!
Get them. They're good.
