    Great Pair to go Anywhere - 4/2/2014
    By: from Massachusetts

    The fit and styling are perfect. You don't often see the nice detailing like the buttons, and the length is good. Neither too short nor too very comfortable!

    Not what I expected - 3/31/2014
    By: from Northern Wisconsin

    These are rather nice shorts, however, they are below the waist and that's not something I've come to expect from Orvis. That kind of fit is okay if you are 20 but Orvis normally has great clothing for the average person. Had to send them back.

    Fantastic fit - 3/20/2014

    These are the second pair of Vintage Denim shorts I have purchased. They have a great fit and the fabric is very soft and comfy. The length is just right (not too short and not too long).

    Low Rise & runs small - 3/18/2014

    Disappointed that these shorts run at least one size smaller in the waist than other Orvis pants. I'm usually a 16, but these didn't come close to fastening. Order up a size (maybe 2 sizes) from your usual Orvis size. Back to the local store they went.

    I have been looking for denim shorts for a while. When I saw them advertised by Orvis, I knew they would be just what I wanted. Can't wait for warmer weather to wear them.

    A repeat order - 11/18/2013
    By: from Oxfordshire

    Delighted to order more Vintage Denim explorer Shorts.I have found the cut/fit to be excellent and the material is soft and most comfortable. This item washes well and needs minimum ironing. I now have a pair of every colour, And they are de- rigeur whenever the weather is suitable for shorts.
