These are J.Crew's Stretch Summerweight Bermuda shorts (item #99432), which originally retailed for $49.50, and is on sale for $39.50. This item is available in-store and online, and is available in several addition colors: navy, honey brown, grey, bright tulip (above, and the color I tried on), white, stone, and sweet cantaloupe. J.Crew describes the shorts as such:
Our famous lightweight cotton chino, with a hint of stretch. City fit—our lowest rise. Sits just above hip. Belt loops. Zip fly. Front and back welt pockets. 11" inseam. Import. Machine wash.I found that these shorts fit true-to-size, and wore my same size as regular J.Crew shorts. The little bit of stretch is nice, too.
As soon as I put on these shorts, I think I started laughing. I am not a fan of these shorts at all - I think these are just a bit too long on me. I would have preferred the shorts at 9" over the 11" bermudas.
I have always been a fan of the double belt back loops and welt pockets, but even those couldn't save these shorts for me. The color I tried on is supposedly the same that the model is wearing, and while the lighting makes the colors a little off in the pictures, they were definitely not as pink as the ones on the model.
I definitely passed on these shorts. The chino fabric is super nice and soft, like J.Crew's other chino shirts, but I prefer my chino shorts a tad bit shorter.
What do you think? Do you like these shorts? Do you like bermudas?
