School Uniform Boys' Stain & Wrinkle Resistant Cargo Shorts
These run VERY large
We purchased these for school uniforms. The shorts are nice and of good quality and have a trendier look than other uniform shorts. However, be careful about the size you order. They run very, very large in both waist and length and are not available in slim sizes. I recommend ordering a size smaller than you would typically purchase and not adhering to the sizing guide online. I tried to cinch up the waist as small as it would go, but still had to end up ordering a smaller size. Even with the smaller size we had to utilize the adjustable waistband to make them fit. This product definitely needs to be re-sized by Land's End.

Very strange sizing...
My son (13 yrs.) is 5'8" tall. I used the sizing chart, measured, and ordered the waist size recommended which was a 33. When he tried them on, he couldn't button the waist and the length was at least 2 inches too long (and my son is tall for his age). The shorts came down past his knees. I had to send them back.

Way too long
I love how well Lands End shorts wash and wear for my kids, but these are so long. My kids are all average height and they are almost mid calf. Returning them.

Perfect Uniform Shorts
I hate these shorts are getting so many negative reviews. They are by far my son and my favorite! They are the perfect length for him. He is tall and skinny and these shorts are perfect. They wash up beautifully. He has worn them all year and they still look like new. I am buying more because I am afraid they will be discontinuing them. If you have a taller child especially in middle or high school, these are the ones to get.

PLEASE bring back the old style!
My sons have worn Lands End cargo shorts for their school uniforms for years. They fit perfectly and lasted for 2-3 years. We loved them!!! These new shorts are way too long. My boys are extremely tall for their age, and these shorts come well below the knee to the mid calf. They look almost like a uniform skirt. They are much lower quality as well. The elastic in the adjustable waistband is so thin and weak, it is completely useless. And the material is much thinner. I ordered 4 pairs at the beginning of the school year and reluctantly kept them all. They ALL had holes in them by Christmas. I won't be purchasing anymore of these! Please bring back the old style; they were perfect.

Way too long!!!
You have to bring back the old style #231540. The new style #430868 are WAY too long and short in the crotch!! Total bummer!

Perfect length and great quality
Finally I found uniform shorts for my sons that are long enough! These shorts are very stylish and also have the traditional Lands End quality. The fabric is excellent and stain resistant (we noticed this is true the first day when my son spilled juice on his shorts and it just beaded and dripped off with NO STAIN). Exceptional shorts. I have bought several pairs for my 4 sons.

Love these shorts!
My son loves these shorts. He wants to wear them everyday. They are very comfortable and we love how long they are!

Way too long
My son is 5 foot 7 inches. The waist on these fit as expected for his size, but the length was markedly below the knee. That's not what we were expecting. More important, that's not what he would wear to school, because it is not the fashion. These are about 4 inches too long, just to get them so the entire knee cap would appear beneath them. Which is what my son would have preferred. We buy lots of LandsEnd clothing and usually have a good experience, but these are an exception.
