"This are run of the mill cut-off shorts. Nothing particularly special. I gave an extra star for the cool colors. The pair I got didn't have *any* fraying on them *at all* which they do in the pictures, or I'd have given 5 stars. The fit is nice, but the shorts have no stretch, so I actually had to size up to wear these on my hips. (Part of that is I have a long torso, and sometimes the fit on me is wonky because of it.) The shorts are sturdy. Eh, I just wasn't that thrilled about them when I tried these on and sent them back. I think if I had stared at the shots of ONLY the shorts, I wouldn't have ordered these t begin with. The pictures are quite accurate. Ignore the images of the rolled up legs/stylized shots."
