Boys' Solid Board Shorts
He looks good!
He needed new swim trucks and these are a tiny bit big so that he can grow into them.

My son loves these shorts, but I have to give them 4 boats for the fit. Last year's size 12 (he's 12) in the regular swim shorts are too small, and sold out fast this year, so I took a chance on these, going up one size, and discovered what other reviewers found - they are cut big. My son cinches up the drawstring at the waist, and he's not particularly skinny; he's got a very athletic, muscular build for a kid. For slim boys, these will be falling down, or gaping at the waist due to the drawstring. Otherwise, they're very well-made, and in spite of the size issue, my son loves them, and won't wear anything else.

It is very disappointing that the shorts are so long. They look totally ridiculous on average to shorter boys. Also, the difference between size 8 and the next size up, which is 10-12, is way to huge. Why isn't there a size just for 10?

Birthday pool parties, here we come!
My son had a rather expensive hand-me-down black and white rash shirt from a cousin who never wore it. It had a crazy design, some black on a white background. It was too busy to go with most board shorts or patterned trunks out there. Enter Land's End. Finally, somebody gets it that some younger kids wanna look cool, "like the older kids" too. (Not covered in cartoon characters!) Not only do these go with the rash shirt we had, they go with many of his other shirts too. They are comfy enough for my six year old to fall asleep in after a day of back to back pool parties. They really do dry quickly. I had brought change of clothes for after the parties, but realized walking to the car I didn't even need to change him to sit in his booster b/c he was bone dry and had only been out of the water about 40 mins. Yahoo. By the time we were home, he was asleep in his swim clothes. That has never happened before as he always complained he was not comfy enough in trunks.
The fit on these is less loose than some trunks, but very nice with a flatter front. The little pockets are functional and very cute. Overall very sturdy and well made. Good purchase!

Great swim trunks
I bought 2 pairs of these, one in green and one in navy blue. They looked great on my sons and fit well. They really did dry fast.

Good basic swim short
I was looking for something durable for my teenaged son and they fit the bill - they also dry very quickly, which is definitely an advantage in humid Florida!

Good quality, nice fit
Fits true to size. My son is avg. sized 11 yr old and I got him a medium. He thought liner was too tight so he cut it with scissors and now loves the shorts.

Super cute and cool
I purchased these for my 7 and 11 year old boys for spring break. They look great and dry super fast! They are the perfect length and look really cool. The boys love them and so do I!

Why no slim this year?
These are hands-down the best camp trunks--they are sleek, super-lightweight, and hold up to heavy chlorine and daily washing (they don't pill like the heavier fabric trunks). Best of all, they really do "dry in a flash" as the description says. Lands End is definitely cut for heavier kids in general, and we've always needed the slim sizes for our wiry, athletic son. So... Why no slim this year??? I am so glad the ones we've got still kind of fit. Bring back the slim fit, please!!!
