Rated 4 out of 5 by Fits Great style...not their "best ever"
I've bought these same shorts in other colors in prior years and have to say these feel like the quality is slipping a bit. The fabric feels like a lighter weight, there is less stitching around the inside waste and the tie is more like a shoe lace...definitely skinnier than previous versions.
The style and fit are still sweet though, simple basic classic. As is the unintrusive mesh lining...perfect. I'm keeping them for these reasons.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JJDawg Runs large
I really like these trunks, the quality and style are perfect. The one problem I have with them is that they run large. They fit slightly loose when I tried them on; however, they really stretched out after they got wet. After one surf session they were almost falling off of me. I had the same problem with a pair of trunks from last season but the description online said that fit had been updated. I am disappointed with this fact since I bought them online and wore them once.

I was hoping to combine JCrew's style w/ the functionality of a sporty board short. Unfortunately, while the cut of these shorts is fashionable and trim, JCrew's attempt at a practical board short really misses - the mesh lining (doesn't ever belong in board shorts) is very uncomfortable, even more so than usual linings in swim trunks as it hugs the leg and separates from the exterior when wet. The exterior itself is a magnet for beach towel lint, which didn't exists before these board shorts! Sorry JCrew, poor over complication of a board short.

I like these for two reasons. One, they fit great (but you might want to order a size lower than what you wear in jeans). And two, they have a nice timeless, classic style. They won't keep that bully from kicking sand in your face, but at least you'll look good while he's doing it.

This style runs large and gets even larger once wet. I have both the 7" 29 waist and the 9"30 waist and both need alterations in the waist especially after I get them wet. Otherwise they look awesome and the color is great!!
