Rated 2 out of 5 by szum Too tight at waist; too big at bottom
Lands End pants and shorts usually fit my very tall 12 year old perfectly in the waist. These were too tight. Yet oddly long and he described them "like they ding out at the bottom like a bell-shape." He's right - they were huge and long at the bottom. I knew if I went a size up for the waist they would be way too big and long at the bottom. And he's TALL for his age! I couldn't decide to say if it fits big or fits small, as it is sort of both!

Rated 1 out of 5 by NIchi Way, way too long
I purchased these shorts for my two boys for school uniforms.
These shorts are ridiculously long! They come to mid calf and look like a Capri pant.
I should also note that my boys are tall for their age, both of them are tallest in their class.
I can't imagine what they would be like on a child of average height.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AOM much too long
My son is very tall for his age (age 7) and these shorts are ridiculously long on him falling below the knee. (On an average height boy, they would likely fall mid-calf.) Poor design. I have been a loyal LE customer for 20 years. Why does it seem that the cut and quality of their clothing keeps declining?

Rated 5 out of 5 by TNmomof6 Great fabric, great fit. My son loves them.
These shorts fit true to size. Great fabric that cleans well and is very comfortable for him. He loves these shorts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JangoFett Fit is too long
So, these shorts are one of two available styles for my son's school uniform. I'm not a big fan - I bought two sizes for each of my sons. The smaller size is pretty snug in the waist, but the next size up is huge and so long that it falls below the knees. I have observed the same with other boys at our school. They might better be called capri pants. Sizing could be improved, it would seem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewtoLandsEndLJ 1/2 way through the 1st quarter and shorts still look as good as the day we purchased!
I am very pleased with the quality, fit, & color of the shorts. My son prefers the "cargo" style as they are longer than standard shorts. So far, I have not noticed any wear or staining. I fully expect that I will be able to pass these onto my next son after the first son out grows them!

Used to love these shorts. Way too long, now. Look like capri pants. My son will not wear them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mw2 Nice short, Runs huge, need a slim option!
You may need a belt. I ordered these as part of the required school uniform. My 65 pound, 53 inch, somewhat thin, a bit long in the torso, almost 9 year old is wearing the little boy size 7 with the waist cinched in as much as I can. This is the replacement to his size 8 children 's place elastic shorts which are no longer legal for school. Please add a slim option so I can get a longer short with a smaller waist.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TM37 Nice product, sizes are way off the chart
I have purchased three different sizes of these for my son, and based my most recent order on the size chart and what was in our closet from last year. The sizing was hilariously big! Not even close. Not sure what happened, but I have reordered more of last year's size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveTheseShirts Best School Uniform shorts!
Well made. Last for entire school year. Still can get holes, with boys, but generally hold up and look good until then! Have been buying these for 7 years as my son grows out of them!
