Rated 5 out of 5 by 5dmarkiii Get these swim shorts
First my size: I am 6'0" tall, 170lbs, slender build. I ordered the 34 and they fit perfectly-maybe a tiny bit loose. (Plus thats what the draw string is for).
Anyways, I bought these in red. BANG! What a head turner. Ladies will be coming up to you and saying, "your phone number: I require it." (Set up dates later, because right now you are busy looking good in your board shorts.)
Oh, and did I mention they are functional as well? Because they are functional as well. Pockets/keychain loop for that locker room key when you're chillin' at the waterpark, and a comfortable mesh lining. They also have a nice trim look, without looking ridiculous. Because of that, they don't look ridiculously baggy like a lot of swim shorts you see.
Stand out, and do yourself a favor. Buy these. (but not in red, I already bought those. No I'm kidding, go ahead buy them in red as well.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Matt Nice board short in good sizes and colors
As a taller (6'4", 36" inseam on Bowery classics) and relatively lean person (typically 33-34 inch waist), I chose the 9" inseam. Others felt too short. Happy with solid and classic colors (I like the dark navy).
It maybe goes without saying, but I had to go at least one size down (32" waist) from what I typically wear so they wouldn't slip too low. People with large posteriors or thick legs may find trouble with this. I have an "athletic posterior" and the shorts do fit snugly in the rear and thighs when I bend at the waist. It wasn't enough of an issue for me, but I recommend testing this when you try them on.
Can't say yet how they hold up--just got them and haven't worn them wading or swimming yet.

Great fit and comfortable enough to wear all day by the pool or at the beach. These board shorts dry quickly too. Draw string front is a bit confusing to tie at first but once you figure it out they hold up the shorts even when riding the waves yet without being too tight. Bought two pair for an upcoming trip to Portugal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SamJ Great Swim Suit!
J.Crew has gone away from the overly baggy board shorts, and has given us this gem. The length is still good for those of us who don't care to look too European, but slim enough and stylish enough to take me from the pool to the bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luv2Shop Overall the BEST Board Shorts
Stylish, Sporty and Practical -- I bought these board shorts for my husband and these are his go-to swim trunks. They are attractive and they hold up perfectly after washing -- buy these, you can't go wrong!
