I'm 6'6" 240. These shorts come right below the top of my knee. I am normally 38 in the waist but after reading the reviews and hearing the shorts were tight in the waist, I gambled and got a 40. Perfect fit. I highly recommend that you get 1 size above your normal size in the waist. The fabric is sturdy and the shorts look good. I was looking for 15 inch but 13 inch is plenty long enough.
