Men's Classic Supplex Sport Shorts, 6" is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 143.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but with a warning I purchased a pair of XL Supplex Sport Shorts a year ago. This item is very comfortable and fit well. Someone considering purchase should be warned not to place this in with cotton t-shirts or anything else that is dried at high temperature. I made this mistake last week and the elastic waist lost 100% of its elasticity. I tried to use the string that is provided to supplement the elastic band to hold the shorts up but found even a wallet in the pocket was causing them to slip down. I had no idea this might happen...but it did. I am buying a second pair now but will handwash and dry this one on a clothes line.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from dont wear in a pool These are great fitting and very comfortable shorts.....one problem...they are advertised as swimming trunks, but no one tells you that teal turns to army green/yellow after swimming 20 laps in a pool. My trunks immediately lost its color and look ridiculous. I found the inside tag and in very hidden area it says....don't use chlorine based bleaches......thanx! Maybe that fact should be highlighted in product description....still great shorts, but just swim in FRESH WATER ONLY..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shorts, longer than past years My husband loves these shorts and I just ordered him a couple more pairs for the summer. They can be used for literally anything, we live by the beach so he loves he can wear them store to water. The only problem is these are significantly longer than the 6" shorts he has had in the past. We compared and they are bigger in every way, still great shorts and comfortable fit, but they absolutely do not have the shorter fit he likes this year. He is 5'9", in past years they hit about where they do on the model, this year they hit at his knees, I did check and this is the length I have always ordered him. Still good shorts, just be aware if you have ordered in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts available My wife and I live on a sailboat, in Florida, so shorts are a major part of my 'wardrobe'. The LL Bean shorts are the correct length, i.e., not 'high water' pants / to your knees or beyond, and have the front pockets and a back pocket I need. They are ready to go into the water, yet are good looking enough to wear away from the water. They last a long time and hold up well over the years. The LL Bean material is softer than the only other shorts with the primary features I want that I've found, which use some sort of unnatural polyester / rayon blend. I've been to West Marine a lot and Macys, etc., but I only buy the LL Bean shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I purchased these for my boyfriend after I ripped his favorite 25 year old pair from kmart. He adores them, they were a little stiff but after one wash they are perfect, I can barely get them off him to wash. He runs in them, works in them and lounges in them!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Way too large, what happened? I buy these shorts routinely, usually the large, but these are more like clown pants. I returned for a pair of mediums. I hope they fit... What happened with the sizing on these? And I’m upset I have to pay 6.50 to correct a obvious sizing change...L.L. Bean is having quality issues, I think...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shorts I have been wearing this style on my daily exercise walks for years. Very lightweight and comfortable. Dry quickly if they get wet. Fit true to size. I wear the six inch length which works best for me but they come longer. Plenty of pockets to carry whatever you need. Well constructed and last forever. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from swim trunks great trunks. The waist band tie strings are on the inside of the trunks; this is hard to find now; most trunks now are made with tie string on outside of trunks, a very silly look. Also, inseam is only 6 inches, so trunks are a very nice length, providing a timeless classic look. I have only had them a month or two; elastic waistband, so far, is holding up very well. They have been washed and dried 5 or 6 times.
