Love the fit of these shorts.

This is a second pair I bought because they are such a nice fit. Would love a pair of regular length pants in the same cut and style. Longer than the ankle length pant you have.

Perfect fit

Super comfortable, perfect fit, finally a pair of shorts that look and feel amazing! Please make them in light brown/khaki next year!

LOVE these shorts

I’m 5’0” and 32” waist and 40” hip and I got the large, the same size as I wear in the ponte pants. They fit like a dream and I love the waistband, which doesn’t fold on me. I get compliments every time I wear them as they look so put together, especially with the gauze tank and long sleeve shirt. Even my husband comments how great they look :-) What surprised me was how cool they are to wear even with the thicker fabric - they aren’t tight against the body so there is air flow. Also surprising is how flattering they look from the side with the high waist. Love these and have them in both colours. Great buy and I have been wearing them constantly. They work in a casual environment as well as a fancier day out.

Smart shorts

Great fit, I am a small and this size fit me so well, smart looking fabric and very comfortable.

Nichole S.
My perfect shorts!

These shorts are amazing. The wide waistband is perfect, it is comfortable and does not roll down on me. I would love to see more bottoms with this same waistband (hint hint: ponte pant). The thicker fabric is flattering and keeps shape. The flowy cut hides imperfections but is not so loose that I have to think about it. Good length, could add an inch. Hoping these shorts come back in navy. Really high quality. Thanks.
