Sizing WAY off, but otherwise nice
on January 15, 2013
Had to leave this review before I return these to Amazon. I am 6'2" and 200 pounds (athletic with a little belly pudge as I get older). I wear a 33 waist in everything (jeans, suits, dress pants). Bought a 33, and the sizing is laughably incorrect. The waist is probably only about a 1/2" small, which is reasonable given different manufacturer's interpretation of waist dimensions. However, these are the skinny jean version of board shorts (and I hate skinny jeans). I have thicker thighs than most, but I am certainly within the range of normal guy thigh size. I could barely get the shorts up my legs because the thighs were so tight. I swear you would have to have bird legs to fit in these shorts.
Otherwise, they seem to be constructed well, though a bit thin (definitely not the quality of the $60-80 board shorts you see in nice surf shops). They are not stretchy like some. The coloring is pretty awesome, which is why I bought these. It is a stylized green camo (mainly green and black).
