Am using a pair of these in the fitz stripe: willow herb green. Mostly just use them for around the house in the hot tub, but here is what I have to say. The shorts come above my knee (which I love, I dislike capris that are called shorts). The cut of the shorts are not too baggy, but have a little room for moving around. The tie system is a traditional laced system so they are easy to get in and out of. There is a side pocket high up on the right leg with a zippered enclosure. This pocket will easily fit a wallet keys phone and stuff like that. Very convenient when running errands at the store or if you are holding on to some keys at the beach. The pocket boasts a key loop on the inside so your don't have an untimely loss of keys at sea. Lets be real here, the colors available are pretty cool too. The simplistic design makes these a throw back that will never go out of style. I got mine in a 32 and usually wear size 32. I am 5'10" 165 lbs for reference. Would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a suit, board short or water farer for the summer months.
