I love these shorts because the length is just right. They're cut just above the knee. I don't like the over-the-knee shorts at all. I dropped Meets Expectations to Good only because there are some differences from the last one I had. I am not sure if it's because I went from a 32 waist to a 30, but the outside seam is single stitch and the inside double stitch, whereas, on my old pair it was reversed. The button on this one is brass color with insignificant markings, whereas, my old pair had a nice shinny nickle colored one with some interesting markings. The material seems a little thinner, but not so much.
