High-Rise Denim Boyshorts in Glenoaks Wash: Cutoff Edition

High-Rise Denim Boyshorts in Glenoaks Wash: Cutoff Edition is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer shorts I have been looking for a good denim short for forever. I was looking at these, and they are great. I have muscular quads and they still look ok and fit fine on me. The inseam is long enough to cover my butt, the denim is stretchy and the wash is fine. I did have to trim a lot of the denim strands but that's not a big deal, then I folded it and sewed it so the cuff would stay down. Love these shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I live in these shorts If you are going to purchase one pair of shorts for the summer, make it this pair! I live in these shorts on the weekends. I usually will swap shorts out at home for gym shorts, but these are so comfy I just keep them on all day. Perfect high rise (not too high, not too low). My usual size (27, 140 lbs). I've received complements from complete strangers as well as my family. I prefer to make the fold over on the bottom of the shorts slightly smaller than the model to add some length (5'-8"), but you can make the shorts as long or short as you want. It's a great wash too. I wish they'd make a darker washed pair (not black, I already have those). I would purchase any pair of these shorts that came out. Living in FL, these are a must.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit minus the extra fraying I usually wear a 28 in boy jeans and bought these in a 28 and they fit perfectly. I especially like the high rise waist and it fits the bum nicely. I trimmed a lot of the fraying mainly because I'm in my mid-40s and my Coachella days are pretty much behind me. Other than that they are my summer staple shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute I have large quads and thighs in general from lifting and have a hard time finding shorts...most descriptions state that the leg opening is smaller than the circumference of my thigh (aka all jean shorts are skin tight and I want some modesty) I chose these shorts because the "boyfriend" style tends to be looser and these had a longer inseam. I went up a size to be safe and they fit well. A little bit loose in the waist but not too much where they're slouchy (my butt helps keep them up :)) The cuff on these is not stitched in place so you can wear them down but if you don't want to they do tend to come un-cuffed on the back from moving around. I'm 5'7 and about 155 and usually wear a 28 in Madewell but went up to the 29.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect classic shorts I typically wear a 26 or 27 in Madewell jeans depending on the stretchiness of the fabric. Based on other reviews, I ordered a size 26 in these shorts and they are perfect. For reference, I'm 5'3" 115lbs. The material isn't very stretchy, so I would say these do run a bit bigger than normal. The rise hits right at my navel. These are very classic and will be a summer staple for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy little shorts Love them. This particular pair had many more "strings" than what the picture showed. Too destroyed looking for my taste...so I removed most and now the shorts are perfect for me. I wear between size 30-31. (Or 10-12) Never sure of the shrinkage factor so I went with the 31 and they fit fine. Washed up ok too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts! I have these same shorts in the bo wash and wear them everyday, so I had to purchase these as well. These are the exact same, just different wash/distressing. I wish Madewell would list this info because it's so important for sizing, but the material is 98% cotton, 2% elastane with around a 10" rise. I wear a 25 or 26 at Madewell depending on how much stretch is in the fabric, and I wear these shorts in a 26. They seem tight at first, but stretch to the perfect size. Also, the shorts I received had more strings hanging off and they were longer than I liked, so I trimmed a few of them to look more like the model photo and love them. Some of the strings are poorly placed in the inner thigh area so I removed all of those, no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts.. Received these shorts in the mail today and they're super comfortable. I'm usually a 26 or27 and took a 27 in these shorts. Although, I do not like fitted shorts. For reference I'm 5'0 112 lbs..Highly recommend..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fit, nice rise, covers bum I have a large rear and small waist, so finding bottoms that fit is tough. These are a blessing. They cover my rear, and have an amazing fit in the waist (supplemented by a belt, of course, because I refuse to get shorts tailored.) The rinse is darling as well, not too faded, not too dark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Denim Shorts Great great great! I have had such terrible luck finding a go-to pair of denim shorts over the years and have always ended up feeling like I was just settling for whatever I could find but not with these shorts! The fit is perfect - not too long and not too short (I only wish I could roll the bottom of the leg up and have it actually stay). The high waist is super comfortable and looks great when tucking in shirts/wearing cropped shirts. There was some fraying on mine but not to the extent of what some other reviewers have mentioned. The only reason I cut my strings was due to the interest my 4mo old puppy took in them, not because they were excessive, too much, etc.
