Okay, but not for me
I would have loved these had the inseam been about two inches longer so that they went to the top on the kneecap. They just don't hit me at the right place on my leg, namely they fall right at mid thigh. I am 5'3 and I prefer my shorts a tad longer. If you have dynamite legs, then you will likely be pleased. The destroying was great and the light color was true to the pics. I normally wear a size 30 in Free People but I ordered a size 29 and they were definitely big enough, but I like the baggy comfy look. I could have probably gotten away with a size 28 because they run big but I do think I would have kept the 29s had they been a bit longer in the inseam, like I already stated. I wanted to like them so much. Hopefully, Free People will make more cool destructed knee length denim shorts???Pretty please?!
These shorts rate high in the cool factor. Yes they run quite large. I bought a 30 for a loose baggy look and I could have gone down a size or 2. But I don't want to bother mailing them back. I just wear a belt and it's all good. The rips are true to the photo. When washing be sure to put these shorts in a mesh bag so they last longer.
Badass But Big
There pants are wicked cool, though like everyone has been saying they run very large. I ordered down a size and could have gone down another size. So unless you know your fit with FP definitely size down a couple of sizes I'd say. Am keeping it anyway, they hang on my hips and just give a mega baggy look which I'm cool with.
I purchased the 24 size and they were still way too big so I decided to keep them and hot wash and dry them to shrink. After two washes they fit! I was concerned about my thighs chaffing as the crotch is low but they are super soft so no problems! Have washed a few times since and they wash well on delicate. they do stretch out after a days wear but look cute with a belt on day two :)
These shorts are very nice and look great!!! I should have ordered the sz 24 instead of 25. I am 5'4 (long legs) 102 lbs and they nearly fall off and hit me at the knees. I have had such turmoil with returns/ exchanges lately that I just kept them in order to avoid the nightmare of exchange ....last one was over two weeks and I had to call 5 x to get somewhere and ended up getting a refund instead of an exchange for a smaller size.
LOVE THE RIPS!
I was upset that there was tons of pictures of people wearing these shorts below, but no reviews!!!! I waited for these to get back in stock, and because I didn't know what size I needed I ordered both the 28's and 29's. I ended up keeping the 28's. These are super cute and perfectly destroyed without showing too much skin! I ordered the lighter pair and they are true to the color pictured. The front button is a little stiff, but it will loosen within time. I am 143 5'9" and have an athletic build and the 29's had a huge gap in the back, and the 28's fit perfectly with a touch of room to spare. In my opinion I would order down a size from what you normally wear in other brands (TR, JBRAND etc), BUT if you are a 28 in FP then order a 28 in these. Get them while they are in stock!!!
