I order from other online retailer's based on inseam measurements. I am looking for LONG shorts. Long enough so that when you wear them on your hips, they come to or cover the knee. Anything shorter, and Fashion Boy risks looking like his dad. Not happening.
All other retailers give you a waist and inseam measurement. This is pretty standard in the industry for menswear. So I have to issue the disclaimer that I took a chance ordering without the information I needed. Kinda cranky that Dept of Goods doesn't help me out with the data, and that the photo is misleading as it makes it look as if the inseam/rise ratio is good (Looks like long leg and short rise. In person, it is long rise and short inseam.) Also, guys, why can't I do a search that goes "men's shorts/30"waist"? Tiresome looking.......
These shorts are too short. Bummer. Inseam of 11" on a 30" waist. Fashion Boy is 6' now, so these may be OK for guys 5"6" - 5'10"- ish.
