Rated 5 out of 5 by barley1 classic shorts
i really like these shorts. this wash is a very classic true blue. i have the same style in a more faded wash from a couple years ago and these fit the same. i like my shorts to fit a bit loose so that there is some room between the shorts and my thighs. i'm not sure if it's just because i have muscular thighs, but i always size up two sizes from my madewell size in skinny jeans to get them to fit this way (i.e. comfortably). so i'm usually a 27/28 or size 4 in bottoms, but i take a 29 in these. this means there is a bit of extra room in the waist, but not so much that i have to wear a belt or anything. if you like your shorts to fit tight (like on the model) you're probably ok with your regular size. this style seems to have a wider leg than the cut-off style of shorts, which i prefer.

These shorts are great for pretty much anything! I love the fit of these shorts! They have a slight baggy fit on me but the worker at Madewell said this is how they are supposed to fit: fitted at the waist and baggy toward th thighs. Which is exactly how they fit me. Would DEFINETLY recomend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CallieRose87 Great fit
These shorts look dressy enough for everyday wear. The wash is true to the picture. These are also flattering in the back, although the waist band is a little big. Not enough to cause them to slip down, and fit is snug. I have short legs and these are still very flattering. Overall very happy with the purchase.

This is my second pair of denim midi shorts from Madewell. I also own them in Locomotive Wash from last Spring. Super comfy and very versatile; a perfect staple for warm weather outfits.

Thought the denim was a poor quaity, has a inexpensive feel about it.
