Rated 2 out of 5 by IceQueen119 Not what they used to be
I have been a Lands End customer for many years and a big fan of the sport knit line. I have many pairs of sport knit shorts, pants and crops all in various stages of age/wear. I recently ordered two pairs of the sport knit shorts expecting the quality I have become accustomed to from Land's End but alas what I received was a thin, flimsy material far inferior to my old sport knit shorts. I still have some of the old ones that are several years old and although they are worn, I consider the old ones to be the "nice" short and the new ones are for grubby work as they just aren't quality. I am sure I will be tossing the new ones from wear much sooner than the old ones. It is very sad that Land's End is sacrificing their good reputation like this. At the same time, I have chosen to keep them as I do not know where to find anything else like them. They LOOK ok, they just FEEL cheap. Also, the other reviewers are correct to say they fit big, but they have always fit big. I wear a 20W in regular shorts and an XL fits me loosely so order accordingly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lesa2015 Love them but cut is generous....
Love the shorts ... I ordered in two colors the navy and the white for the summer. I saw no difference in fit between the colors. Since I am more apple shaped I stuck with what I would usually order, an XL as I was afraid of a tight waist and shrinkage. However, even with the apple shape, I should have sized down. I've washed them numerous times and dried them in the dryer. No shrinkage whatsoever. Still very loose and comfy. With regards to the rise, I would call these a long rise, coming to the natural waist or higher. If I pull these up, they come almost to my bra line. (Such a cute look ...)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sharon2015 The shorts fit is too big.
I always wear a small in these types of clothing products. The fit is so big that I need to roll the waistband (like we used to do growing up to make our skirts shorter). The fit is extremely long between the waistband to the crotch area making for a very bad look. Luckily I only planned to wear these shorts in my house to exercise. I would not consider wearing them out in public for that reason. The quality of the fabric and sewing is fine, jus the fit..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maremare So soft, so comfortable: a nearly perfect garment.
I got two pairs in navy and stone and have been wearing them all summer. I though I'd be wearing these shorts for running errands. Instead, they became my sleep shorts because they're SO comfortable and stretchy. It's hard to imagine a softer cotton knit. The fabric washes and dries beautifully. The elastic waist is super comfortable and forgiving. Love the big front pockets -- found myself stuffing the pockets with small misplaced objects around the house to return them to their proper places. I hope Lands End continues to make these shorts with no changes because they are a very-nearly perfect garment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HollieStuhldreher Not flattering
The elastic waist and the pockets create a very unflattering silhouette. The pockets stick out and the elastic waist bunches up. I wish Lands End would make shorts in their Starfish line.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FrankySmith This item looked good in the photo and felt good when I first put them on.
I bought them and wore them around the house to be comfortable. But after an hour or so, the crotch and seat of the pants were sagging so low that they look like they belonged to somebody else. The material is cheap and does not hold its shape. For what they cost, they're not worth it. Is that what they meant when they advertised "Roomy Fit" ???????

These shorts are perfect for golf. They are long enough and the waist band is elastic which moves with me when I swing the golf club.
