Rated 5 out of 5 by CJL28 Nice Length, good fit, casual short.
Perfect length for my 5'9' and 33 inch inseam, the 5" shorts are long enough for my 39 year old body! I love the weight of the material, I find them a very casual style. I returned the light pink Heather Quartz color, but kept the melted caramel and will probably order the white! I am a neutral bottoms kind of girl, starting to branch out for color and patterns. The chino short fits me perfectly in the waist and hip in a size 2, for reference, I have 27" natural waist, and 37" hip and at three fingers below the belly button 32" and these were a PERFECT fit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PositiveThinker My Summer Go-to Shorts
These shorts are the perfect summer staple! I love the great fit and all of the wonderful colors. I own 13 pair. I wash on cold and hang to air dry and never have to iron!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Monicat I want one in every color!
I love the way these shorts fit so much, that I have slowly been collecting them in other colors every time there is a sale. For reference, I am 5'2, and 112lbs, thin build, but have hips and little bit of a booty, and a size 2 fits just right. I wash them cold, as another reviewer noted, and air dry them. It's not necessary, but dryers are so hard on clothes and I want these to last. I have a pair I bought 5 years ago that still look new. These are the perfect length for me- I am in my 30's and feel too "old" for short-shorts, but not ready for long shorts. I dress them up, dress them down, and they look perfect for just about any summer occasion. I highly recommend them!

Rated 2 out of 5 by MOMom J. Crew obviously changed these shorts
I am a true size 6 in the chino shorts. I order these shorts this year and they are the perfect fit, with a little bit of room for possible shrinkage in the waist and rear (which I have found to happen with the J.Crew chinos in previous years). I wash the shorts once and experience the typical shrinkage. I wash the shorts twice and experience more shrinkage. I wash the shorts 3x and yet more shrinkage occurring in the waist, rear, and leg. Same shorts that I purchased last summer, only this summer they continually shrink in the wash (delicate cycle wash and dry). So sad. These have always been my go-to shorts for summer. I am going up to a size 8 just to get me through this summer but if J. Crew does not go back to their original shorts distributor/maker/source (however that works) will have to search for another brand next summer. Please fix this J. Crew.
