Rated 1 out of 5 by MGDC Lightweight, but wrinkle like crazy
These are a lightweight alternative to Crew's Stanton shorts. Given that, I expected to love them. Nope. While these are certainly a lighter weight cotton, it is a huge pain to take care of them. When tumbled dried, they wrinkle more than any other pair of shorts I've ever owned. Even allowing them to hang dry isn't a great option - you still end up reaching for the iron (this also applies to the lightweight chinos from J. Crew).
Just stick with the standard weight Chino material when buying from J. Crew. Those can be a little heavy in the hot weather, but they are far easier to wash and wear than the poorer quality lightweight version.

I own seven pairs of lightweight chino club shorts spanning back to 2011 and each pair is still going strong through the summer heat and humid air of the mid-Atlantic, and even the southern Caribbean. Fit is true to size and color/fabric holds up very well through multiple washes. They do wrinkle easily being lightweight. Dry them on a low setting or hang them up to dry and then just lay them out and run your hand across to remove any wrinkling. Low heat or air drying will also prevent fraying, as will gentle cycle washing. Perfect paired with boat shoes, loafers, flip flops, sneakers, even dress shoes. Lightweight, casual and stylish.

These have quickly become my go-to shorts. They're not baggy around the legs and they're the perfect length for me. The fabric is also nice and lightweight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom3 Great short my son has been wearing for years
Every year my son awaits new colors and a fresh pair of this style short. Great to dress up or wear casual.

I bought a pair of "Dust Berry" and a pair of "Stone". I am not quite sure how I feel about these shorts. They fit great and I love both colors (though stone is a pain to keep clean), but they feel flimsy and all the fabric is VERY thin. I like the idea of thin shorts that keep me cool, but they feel cheap. I have washed them a couple times, and they look fine so I hope they'll last.
