The shorts are okay but not the color that is represented in the picture. In the picture they look black, but in reality they are more of a faded gray, which makes them look old and tattered. It's just not a flattering color. They also don't fit well. I usually wear a size 26 in pants and shorts, but they were way too lose around the waist. The size 25 I have of the same exact shorts in a different color are too tight, which is why I thought it would be fine to purchase the 26. If you are thinner around the waist and have a fuller butt and thighs, I wouldn't suggest these shorts. Would love to see some billabong shorts that are made for realisitic bodies!
