Nice shorts, but not cut to the knee

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
5' 11"

I'm always on the lookout for slim fit shorts being 5'11' ~145lbs. I have toned thin legs and most shorts are just too baggy. These were pretty slim fitting, but they weren't close to an 11" inseam and/or "cut to the knee" on me. Honestly, I was looking for something more around a 10" inseam and these look like a 9" inseam on me (they measured at around 9.25"). If they fit like they do on the model in the pictures then they'd be perfect, but I found them an inch or so too short. Obviously, being a cotton twill they are a heavier short, but figured that going in. They have just enough stretch and the 30 waist was perfect on me (my waist measures 31). Just wish they would've been a little longer or I would've kept them.

Great Shorts, But Waist Runs Big

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
6' 1"

Love these shorts, but they have the same problem as the pants version in that they run large in the waist. I have the pants in 38 (my usual size) but find them a little looser than I would like. So when I ordered these shorts I got 36 and sure enough, they fit great. Factoring in the stretch, these size 36 could maybe even pass for size 40. Seeing as how these run large AND they have a good amount of stretch, I would definitely recommend sizing down from your usual. All the other reviews say these fit true to size, which I have yet to experience myself, so I took this picture. Half the circumference of the size 36 is about 19 inches. So if we do a little math (2 x 19) the entire circumference is 38. And that's without any stretching.
