Christoph G.wrote a review of Patagonia Stand Up Short - Men's on September 5, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I must have worn about a dozen pairs of these over the years. During the summer I practically live in them. They are tough and can take a beating. Over the years Patagonia has improved the fabric for the pockets. In older versions my keys always destroyed the pockets first. Now they seem to last forever and after two/three years the entire pair of shorts pretty much falls apart to be given a decent burial.
Some folks claim they got smaller over time. I cannot confirm that. I've worn 34 waist for all my pants and shorts since high-school and while they are sometimes a bit tighter, sometimes a lit wider, that has nothing to do with the pants/shorts. :-) I'd say they fit like every other of my pants / shorts.
