John Blair&#174; Back Elastic Twill Shorts
Sizing way off
I bought 2 pairs of these shorts in May of 2013 and loved them. Elastic waist was comfortable, inseam cut just right and a good length. The shorts are based on JB Back Elastic Slacks, of which I own several pair. I just ordered 2 more pairs of the shorts and was shocked when I tried them on. They are so tight in the waist that I cannot button them. I got the old pair and laid them over the new pair and the waist appears to be about the same. The difference that I see is that the new ones have no elastic stretch in the waistband. The elastic is there but it is not puckered. The old ones have a larger cut fabric waistline but the elastic is puckered to bring the waistband to the marked size. In other words, the new one are the marked size with no elastic give, versus the old ones that have full give and stretch. I returned them for a refund and hope they resolve this quality control problem. There are several previous reviews that mention this problem. I would hope someone in management or purchasing is aware of this and is doing something to rectify it. I would like to purchase more of these but will wait a while. We have identified a problem for Blair and hopefully someone will do their job and fix this.

In general your products are a disapointment
The color and quality of the material is good. However, I've never met a new zipper that was quite as reluctant to perform its appointed task.....
I'm going to use this space for comment on the belts... The leather, at least so far, seems to be of good quality. Again--however, a small problem. The elastic seems to be old. Both brand new belts have little stretch.
I would comment on another pair of shorts that I've ordered but--gosh darn it--they are on back order. It seems to me that if you included process review of both product and ordering process that

Quality men's denim shorts are hard to find
Actually. the shorts I really like and wanted are currently on back-order. I ordered these as an alternate. Although I prefer the others, I am satisfied with these as a temporary replacement.

Ordering was not only easy but the product was ama
Having been a customer for years, I naturally went to Blair to order men's shorts in advance of going on vacation in Florida and was again happily surprised when they arrived at my doorstep. Not only were they perfectly tailored but the quality was exceptional, as always.

Fits perfect and material great
Very good gift, stretch enough around the waist,
Needs little ironing out of the dryer.
Would buy two pants again, different colors.
