Size runs big - despite the US listed size
on September 10, 2014
It should be apparent from the sizing 'adjustment' that you have to make that these are shorts which are manufactured and marketed for a foreign country. The shorts I purchased had tags on them written in Chinese. That being said, the shorts were heavier and more substantial than I was expecting. I will have to wait and see how they hold up, as other reviews have complained about durability. My review is to caution you that you should be particularly aware of the sizing.
I typically wear size 33 or 34, but for shorts, I like to wear 34 a lot as it gives me a little more comfort when I'm lounging around the house. So for these shorts I ordered the XXL 36, which are sized as a US 34. But these are bigger than any other 34's I own. As an example, I can have them on buttoned and zipped, and pulling down from the pants, they'll slide over my hips to the ground. I can't do that with any of my other shorts - except some old 36's I own. These may be between a 34 and 36, but they are NOT very close to a 34. I would go so far as to guess these are between a 35 and 36 (at least as compared to typical US sizes).
I'm not sure if I'll try to replace these with the next size down or not. I can wear these with a belt (which is pictured but not included - and stated as such in the description). But again, I was going for comfort so didn't want to have to wear a belt.
So be cautious as to which size you order.
