To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These almost feel like swim trunks. The waist I find to be true to size. I measure exactly 31.5" and the size 31" fit just fine. They are slim so a bit small in the hips but the stretch makes that fine.
Mine wrinkled pretty badly after first wash and hang dry. I attempted to iron on the silk/wool setting and it made weird texture on them. Maybe the spandex melted? I don't know.
You get what you pay for. I got a few pairs and the colors have a washed / faded look to them. The wrinkle pretty bad and every pair will curl and wrinkle at the bottom of the leg opening around the stitched seam. I have bigger/ muscly thighs and these are a bit snug. 5’9 175. Probably would recommend looking elsewhere and spend a little more for a better product.
These shorts looked really nice when tried on before washing. After washing, the bottom hems folded up. In order for them to look nice, they needed to be ironed, which I don't enjoy. The next time washing, I laid them on the counter to dry, smoothing them out. That helped a little. Ordered other pairs before I realized the wrinkling problem.
These shorts are super comfy and they were a 5-star rating until a hot Saturday morning before going out with friends when one of them noticed sweat marks on the backside of my shorts; the biggest downfall of how thin and lightweight they are... So if you’re like me, and sweat even in New England winter, be wary of these shorts. You will soak through these in no time. So my 5-star rating goes down to a 3-star rating because it’s too embarrassing to wear these shorts out in public where everyone can judge you for your swampa$$.
Not what I expected for the “Goodthreads” line. Shorts fit well enough, but the material was very lightweight and had a sheen / slippery feel to it. Didn’t look like high quality or like it would last very long.
