I dont get the reviews that say these shorts have uncomfortable material. They are very comfortable, and remind me of my expensice calvin klein dress pants. They do run quite small tho. I am a 32 waist and ordered up to a 34 size based on everyones reviews, but then had to send them back and get the 36. I wish they had a 35 as those would be perfect for me but the 36 size is acceptable. I also read that they are stiff when you first get them, again I have found this far from the truth.
