Rated 5 out of 5 by Corey Shrinks at a larger percentage
These particular shorts shrunk at a higher percentage than the other Irish linen shorts I have. I would recommend going one size larger in the waist, or else the shorts may be to small in the waist and rise. JCrew customer service was awesome in letting me return them even after I washed them.
As for the shorts, they are not a flimsy linen, they are thick, and substantial. But not hot. The description, while it states herringbone, and it is, is not a traditional herringbone where you can clearly see the checks. The fabric is more of a slubby crosshatch, with variance in thread thickness, and imperfections (the good kind of imperfections). It's great though, the texture gives the shorts some personality, and not the same ole "flat grey".

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCREWLOVER Soft, comfy, and trendy
Got both colours and they were the BEST purchase I've made at JCrew. These pants are the perfect combination of comfort, style, and softness.
