I went out on a limb to buy these as I usually buy Volcom. I'm quite thin so I prefer a long (down to the knees) slim fit. The Matix "Welder" Chino offered me a similar short plus now I have an alternate khaki color to pick from. My amateur guess is that these Chinos have a 23" inseam because they come down to my knees but not all the way over them. True to size and no shrinking when I washed & dried. Very soft but not 100% cotton so they look ironed! The blue plaid lining is a nice finishing touch.
Just a heads up on two things.
1) When they say "relaxed" they mean LOTS of room and NOT even close to a slim fit. If you like 'em large all around then these are for you.
2) I am a dead ringer for a 30" waste but the Union's 30" was more like a 31" -32".
I bought both the black and the khaki and the same went for both. Therefore I returned them because I go for a slimmer fitting short. Nothing against Element - it was simply a personal preference.
Sorry to say that I took the advise of the two posted reviews that said to buy one size larger. I bought a 32 instead of my usual 30 and I need to get some alterations to keep them in place! Plus they are baggy in the butt. Plus, my wife had to sew my button back on already as it was falling off. Wish I could trade them back for a 30.
Great stretchy fit and goes well as very casual or dress to impress. Order to size
