Rated 5 out of 5 by Laur Great length shorts
Finally, a short that's long enough so you don't look like you are trying to be in your twenties, but you don't look like a troop leader either. These shorts are perfectly tapered in the thigh so they can be a little longer than the 5" Chino and still look fashionable. Wish these came in the bright yellow!
I usually wear a 4 in JCrew shorts and these fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMD07 Great shorts but buy the right size!
I love these shorts! They are soft and comfortable and just the right length without being too long. I've washed and dried them and they came out perfect. However, I was torn between which size to get - the one that was a little snug and the one that was roomy. I chose the roomy ones and that was a mistake. The shorts tend to stretch and I should have gone with the smaller size. I will know better when I get my next pair!

The leg is somewhat tapered. Instead of being big, blousy camp shorts, they are a nice, refined (but casual) pair of summer shorts. They hit about 4" above the knee on my 5'4" frame. They run a little large, and give with wear. By afternoon, they weren't sloppy, but definitely looser. I ordered them in a 6 (for reference, I weigh 130lbs). I am keeping 6s, and am ordering a couple more pair in different colors, but I am going to order them in a size 4.

The Harbor Short is a well constructed pair of shorts. The 98% cotton material is soft and substantial. I purchased the shorts in both the navy blue and deep green colors and they go well with everything. The best feature about this pair of shorts is the mid-rise! No weird sensation that the waistline is too low or cutting into the lower abdomen - which is NEVER attractive or comfortable. The leg openings are on the smaller end, so folks with larger thighs may find them uncomfortable. Although the care instructions recommend "gentle wash," I have washed them in the "regular cycle" using cold water and hung them to dry. There has been No noticeable shrinkage or adverse effect on the overall fit. They are sturdy enough to withstand hours of gardening and stylish enough to wear when going out for dinner. Now if J. Crew could only transform the Harbor Short into a pair of long pants with the same type of "rise" I would be in Seventh Heaven.

Last year I was thrilled with the Andie shorts. This year the Harbor short is even better. I like the shorter length, the fit is also slim through the leg like the Andie short. Great basic colors. It would be great if they came in more colors.
