I live at the beach, so I wear board shorts almost everyday, but these aren't board shorts - they're just baggy gym shorts like the crappy ones we had to wear in gym class in the 70's! Instead of laying flat from the waistband down, they poof out at the back, front, and sides. So, instead of being comfortably fitted the way board shorts normally are, they are sloppy looking and baggy. I wouldn't even wear these to do the gardening, let alone to go somewhere in public! They are awful! I returned them.
PS - Writing reviews has become an accidental hobby for me, and it always makes my day to know that people find my reviews helpful (and if not, why.) Also, if you have any questions, clarifications, or comments please feel free to leave a comment below. I usually respond pretty quickly and almost always within 24 hours.
