The shorts themselves seem to be of decent quality considering the price, though they were never worn to prove this. My son has a 30" waist so I decided to try the small, which was for waists 28-30", thinking they would stretch. Well, the small waist measured 24" and they barely stretched to 28" and they were pretty tight in the legs and buttocks. So I returned them (at my cost) and ordered the mediums (for waist size 32-34) since he liked the styling of the shorts. Well, the mediums were only marginally larger than the smalls. The waist measured 25.5" at rest and could be stretched to 30" if you tried and they were only slightly larger in the thigh. Still a bit tighter than they should have been in my opinion. Mind you, my son is 6'3" tall and 150lbs! Needless to say I was a bit dismayed at having to spend another $6 to ship them back and have nothing to show for the $12 I spent. I have to say though, the customer service responded promptly and to all my correspondence and did make it possible for me to return the second shipment at their cost. They also offered that I try a different style and gave me a discount code to use. They also suggested that we try a large which to me was ridiculous considering the size of my son. He is NOT a large in anything! I did try one more time with a different style in size medium and my son has decided to keep them, though I think they are still a bit tight looking. They are really decent shorts, it is just the sizing that is messed up.
