Boys' Boat Races Pattern Long Swim Trunks
Long is right!
Great bright print, quality material and construction. My child is on the thin side, but even sizing down, he has to use the drawstring to keep these on. They hit him below the knee which seems super long to me, but he is happy with them and they provide extra coverage from the sun. Very cute on.

Great swim trunks, but LONG and rash guards don't match!
My son got two pairs of these and they are very cute and a true fit (unlike the other pair we ordered from LE this year, which run much smaller than previous years'). However, they are not kidding when they say LONG. These are crazy long, practically mid-calf, which is more than I could tell from the picture. My son actually caught himself on them b/c they really are too long for active swimming (he doesn't want them short, just useable) and I am thinking maybe I should take them to get shortened, or else I need to find a different, shorter pair, for use when he really needs it. If you don't mind the length, or if your child is tall and skinny, then these are otherwise great. The only other issue is that we had a hard time finding a rash guard to match. We found one that matched the deep sea, but LE has no rash guards with "tropical turquoise". Instead there's "dark azure" and "moonstone blue", which looked OK online but really didn't match. Please make rash guards to match and don't change from one kind of turquoise (or red or green or any other color) to another every year to nothing matches.

We had these trunks last year and they were AWESOME!!! Lasted the entire summer - through the pool and beach - and still looked new! The fit was spot on for my tall, thin 5yo boy. I would buy every color this year if they still had his size.

Really long but nicely made
If you have a kid between sizes, I'd order on the smaller side even though most people usually order up to make it fit longer. These look like clam diggers if they don't fit right. I ordered my son's size (8), which he is growing into but fits in other clothing. I think they will be great next summer, but for now they are halfway down his calves! He is quite slim so I was surprised, it's unusual for something that's near his waist size to be so long. The board shorts are well-made with beautiful colors, stitching is well-done and the print is crisp.

Swim shorts are great fit for slim 11 yr old
For 11 yr old grandson. He loves the color and pattern and "coolness" of these! We're off to Cancun to give them a real test. Like the "hand" of the fabric & the UV protection they offer to our pale mid-western skin.

Durable fabric & color; great fit.
The color and fabric look almost new after four months of twice-weekly use in chlorine. Very comfy. They do go an inch or so below the knee, but my son actually likes that; the suit still looks great with the long style.

Long but like
When I first put them on my 3 year old the length struck me. They are on the longer side but then I thought less exposure to the sun! They are cute and great quality so they still get 5 sails from me.

These were great for our vacation.
These swim trunks were purchase for vacation. They were a little longer than normal but worked great for tubing and water park. They dried quickly and were very comfortable.
