These are a little old-school short but fit and fabric is great. If only 2 inches longer they would be perfect.
I bought my husband these in olive for Father's Day, and he is very satisfied with them. He is fussy about his shorts as he is somewhat handicapped and likes elastic in the waist so they go on and off easily. TA has a good selection of elastic waisted shorts and pants that are nice looking, easy washing and long wearing. These Zephyr shorts are a little expensive at the normal price, but it's great when they go on sale. His size was consistent with other TA shorts and pants we've bought.
Love these shorts!
These are my favorites, very comfortable and I like the cut. They do tend to look a bit wrinkly though (not quite as shown in pic), so I'd wear them in more casual settings.
New York, NY
I recently picked up a pair of these with 6 inch inseam. I'm 5'9"" and 165 with a fairly athletic build and the mediums fit well although the waistband is perhaps a little snug. The shorts are light and roomy in the legs with nice freedom of movement. I absolutely love the heavily textured fabric, reminds me of soft burlap and is something different from my other shorts. Pockets are excellent. Great shorts for lounging around the house. I just ordered three more pairs, however I'm not thrilled with most of the colors. The malt is what I have now and is really the color that I liked best so I got a second pair of those and then added the indigo and olive to the order. I'll be on the lookout to see if they add better colors up the road though. How about a warm red clay color, a darker brown or a rich medium green?
Great after work shorts
Comfortable and laid back. Perfect for after work wear in the summer.
I'm picky about the shorts I buy. I need the pockets, the loose fit, and the 6 inch inseam. I live in the city, and ride a recumbent bike a lot, so I need shorts that won't spill items from my pockets. Others who sell such shorts stop making them, or change their designs, so I can't buy more of them once the current ones don't serve my purposes. These are a great solution, and I've now bought about 11 pairs, and am happy I did.
One fits one does not.
Recently, I purchased two pair of these shorts both are large. The problem is that one fits fine while the other is snug. I would probably order another pair but not if they are as snug as the previous pair. We washed both pair but one is much smaller then the other.
Best Shorts EVER
I have bought several pairs of these shorts in various colors; I wear them until they practically fall off. They are comfortable, cool, and go with anything. I love 'em!
Great shorts for California
Living in California I wear shorts all year long. I really like the Zephyr shorts because they are good-looking, easy to care for, and very comfortable. I especially like the soft fabric that is also long wearing. They are perfect for any occassion, and I always get a lot of questions about where I purchased them. Great shorts at a reasonable price.
