Rated 3 out of 5 by Cece Recommended with reservations
I had bought these previously in black & navy; size L. They fit OK, but I do notice that despite washing in cold water & hanging to dry, the colors have faded over the past year. Last year I started washing them in a laundry product for dark clothes. Bought white & khaki last year, was waiting for 2 more pairs in black. They came today (waited since last year). One pair fits OK like my previous ones. The 2nd pair of black that I received today, is at least 1" larger in the waist and hip, and falling off me. Have to send that pair back, not taking a chance on sizing again. When I backordered them, they were on sale & free shipping, but now I will have to pay to send them back. No deal there. I have noticed that with other items I have ordered, specifically Spindrift sweaters, the sizing is inconsistent from year to year and it depends on the color. Sadly might be saying goodbye to Appleseeds, as it is too expensive to pay to ship something back in these cases. You would think a size large would be the same if you ordered more than one item the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jamaicabound Nice shorts
The material for these shorts is nice and thick. The length was long enough to cover my ample thighs but not too long as to look 'old lady ish"
I liked them well enough to buy two pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Casper12 Looks lovely on, fits beautifully.
I love the way this looks and feels. It shrank a bit on washing but this made it fit better for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Daisy334 Waist elastic twists
I bought 3 pairs of these shorts to wear this winter since they are knee length and have wide cut legs. I tore my ACL and wear a knee brace so these fit over the brace. Only complaint is the elastic twists in the waist during laundry. I got it mostly straightened out and stitched it down, top to bottom, in several places.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sactown Did not like the look or fit.
I've purchased same size shorts from Blair before and loved them. Blair didn't have my size so I tried their affiliate, Appleseed's. They cost more than Blair and the fit was slimmer which was not what I was expecting. I didn't like the look or feel of the wide waistband. I plan to return them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Joy7 Comfortable, well made shorts
The knit shorts are very comfortable including the flat waist. They are well made and the fabric is very nice. I wanted a longer length but the pair I received was about two inches above the knee. In addition, the legs were wider near the bottom than I wanted and look more like a skirt. I don't care for that look but since they were purchased for home wear, I kept them. The shorts were true to size. I do recommend this item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1Rose Great except for shallow pockets
The fit is true to size and the fabric is very soft and comfortable. The length is great. The one downside is that the pockets are too small. I cannot put my cell phone in the pocket and feel it is secure enough to stay there when I sit or bend over.
