    Summer Necessity - 7/15/2014
    By: from Flourtown, PA

    An old favorite from a fine purveyor that now sells through my favorite retailer, Orvis which makes it easy to order. Both the Original Nantucket Reds shorts and trousers are the real deal and the only ones that I will wear. They are well made and are the correct color and fade properly. A great companion to a blue navy blazer and a pair of sockless white bucks.

    Nan's Reds - 7/15/2014
    By: from Jefferson City, MO

    I read the reviews and ordered a 36 when I normally wear a 35 and these fantastic shorts are already a favorite. They washed nicely (I dried them on low heat) and could not fit better. The weight is substantial but not cumbersome and will be great for the autumn too with a long sleeved button down. Go ahead and spend the few extra $'s for a classic, timeless style and enjoy!

    Spot On, Orvis! - 7/12/2014
    By: from Plymouth, MA

    There are so many "fake reds" out there, supplies by manufacturers who ought to know better, so Orvis appears to have him just gone to the originals. I've had Murray's Toggery reds for years - in trousers and shorts - and these ever-fading red canvas pants are THE summer staple for church, parties, yachting, or just knocking around. They wear really well, and improve with age!

    Nantucket Reds Shorts - 7/10/2014
    By: from Birmingham,AL.

    These shorts are not red. They are much more in the orange family which is what I wanted so that is great. I was told to order a size down from my normal size and that should fit just right.....wrong!!! You need to order your normal waist size for them to fit. I had to return mine and I can't wait to receive the right ones!

    Quality Still Exists - 6/17/2014
    By: from Birmingham, AL

    These shorts last. I have a hard time saying that about anything anymore. Make the purchase, pay for quality. One caveat....order big. I wear a 38 carhartt or american eagle, that translates to a 42 nantucket red.

    poor quality seam stiching - 6/15/2014
    By: from UK - Hertfordshire

    Like the shorts but not the quality - I purchased two pairs of nantucket shorts and both pairs have developed stitching failures on the outer seams which is most annoying considering the price and claims - these shorts are just 12 months since purchased - my advice would be to consider purchasing Orvis own brand
