Rated 5 out of 5 by TomJr Great fit, feel, and functionality.
I believe that these shorts are true to size. Some reviews are saying that they run large, and if you're looking for a "slim fit," then they may feel large. These are by no means bulky, but they do give you room to breathe and move around, and that's the point.
I'm 6'2 190lbs 34-35 waist, and the Large is the perfect fit. Runs a few inches above the knee and sits nicely on my waist. The material feels strong/durable while also being fairly light in weight. I'm a long distance runner so I have athletic thighs and these shorts give me just the right amount of room without being "loose" to the eye.
These will be in heavy rotation all spring/summer for beach, bbq, hangout activities. You could hike in these if you wanted to. They are amazing!
Dear JCrew, a forest green color would be a great addition to the line-up!

These short are a great pick for warm weather! They are super light-weight and work really well as a sort of active / casual style for weekends 'n such.
The elastic waistband isn't overbearing so you can rely on the draw string if you're wearing them a bit looser. There's a faux-fly that isn't piled really high with fabric and the hem is shorter than their Stanton short which I find to be great because that gives these shorts a 'lighter' look and feel.
One thing to note is they don't have a lot of give or stretch. I think they have a similar fabric feel to the club shorts so you may want to take that into consideration when picking a size. I'm either a 31 or 32 depending on if I want to wear my pants a bit lower / more comfortably and I ordered a medium and they have a comfortable-looking fit. After I load my pockets with keys, a phone, and a wallet I start to need the drawstring to keep them from drifting too low.
These are a great, lightweight, casual short for summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NWARDIV The Most COMFORTABLE Pair of Shorts Ever Made
I fell in LOVE with the green dock shorts online, and surprisingly the color is just as vibrant in-person. When trying them on, the dock shorts had a lived-in feel which makes them that much better for hot uncomfortable summers in DC.
I am 6', 155lbs and the 7" inseam falls about mid-thigh for me. I'm no stranger to short shorts, but these may not be suitable for all occasions (the drawstring further proves this point).
I would definitely recommend these to anyone who wants a comfortable, super casual pair of shorts to wear with a tee, tank, Birks, or sneakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sg0926 runs a tad large
I normally size a 36 in the shorts that J crew sells and I tried the XL on in stores in this fit and they were so big! I would recommend anyone with a 34/36 waist ordering a size large in order to prevent them from looking baggy! SUPER comfortable though...I will be living in these all summer! They feel like jogging shorts but look very similar to the stanton shorts when they are on!
