Men's Wrinkle-Free Double L® Chino Shorts, Natural Fit Plain Front 8" Inseam is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Second hand? First, I bought a pair shale grey size 31w. They were a little tight after washing but not uncomfortably tight. Bought a second pair dark khaki size 32w figuring that they would be just right after washing. I received the second pair today and when I took them out of the bag and looked them over the first thing I noticed was that each leg had two creases. Almost as if they were washed, dried and pressed by a previous owner. Tried them on and could barely button the 32w. The pair of 31w fit better! Why can’t Bean fix this problem of inconsistent sizing?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sizing and Fit is way off Not sure who is responsible for sizing/sourcing these shorts at LLB but I got a pair today that is 2" smaller in the waist than the same 2 pairs I bought 2 years ago. Ok, maybe this cotton could stretch a little over time so the older pairs are a little larger (i.e., 1/2" or less) but not 2". The waist in these shorts don't match the waist of khaki pants I bought last winter by 2" either. Guess I will have to start going somewhere else to buy my shorts. Quality seems fine but I don't have time to mess with goofy sizing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice fit, but why the crease? These shorts fit well and are the right length, but the crease down the front looks downright silly and is impossible to remove. Plus, the non-iron fabric retains heat, so they can be hot in the summer. Bean used to make a nice tropic weight short, but for whatever reason they discontinued them. Sigh. Bean doesn't seem to make chino shorts without the crease and non-iron fabric...why? Guess I now have to look elsewhere.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I had purchased the same product a number of years ago except with a 6" inseam rather than the 8" that I had purchased because the 6" was apparently no longer available. Rather than the shorts simply being 2" longer, they were larger in all respects. The fit is not good. I should have returned them, but opted instead to have them shortened and move the button to tighten up. Big mistake on my part.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing These shorts look like two others I purchased a few years ago. Unlike the older ones, this one does not have an inner button that helps to make the outer buttoning easier. The front pockets are not concave, but rather straight. It is less easy to place one's hand in the pocket to place something in it or to remove what is in it. All of your stuff is made in Asian countries. Buttons on shirts are more difficult for me to button, especially if the short is a button down collar. The tie may not be hidden under the collar, as in the past: example: yellow button down shirt, regular, 33 sleeve, shirt recently purchased. I will be giving this stuff to the Vets or the homeless, but I am on the verge of leaving LL Bean unless it returns to its 1912 values.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Item #215649 Received these shorts August - made in China - material is paper thin and had to patch in three places in the last month. Quality is not up to LL Bean's usual standards. They can basically only be worn around the house/yard at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Basic Shorts These are the shorts I prefer for everyday wear in Florida. The fabric is soft cotton, the style and length is right, and they wear well. The fabric treatment is not the previous one that was hard, shiny, and repelled water in the washing machine; though they still have a baked in permanent crease. The color selection is a light khaki and some too dark colors; I'm hoping for some mid-range colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from RETURNED - TOO SMALL Beware the size does not run true. Had to go to a local store and buy shorts. All other brands are a true 38" size.
