    Terrific Casual Short

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Feb 2019

    I have been wearing this short for over a decade. I am a short rise, so the 7 inch inseam is the best fit I can find. The short is extremely comfortable although it doesn't hold a crease very well if that is important to you. I didn't give five stars mainly because I need to replace these short every 2-3 years because the fabric breaks down after that time and stains become difficult to remove.

    Great Shorts

    I was very skeptical when I had to go to the flat front shorts. Pleats are just made for some folks. These work well.

    Summer Comfort

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Jun 2017

    The Kimo II is a great short for summer. I am a short rise, so the 7" inseam helps for a better fit. Not perfect, but better than most shorts.
    Captain's Landing does a great job in fulfilling my orders.

    Excellent update of the traditional pleated-front one-half elastic shorts

    Posted by Bruce Wright on 20th Jun 2017

    I am very pleased, having always enjoyed the pleated-front Kahala version that's no longer available. The new shorts are just as comfortable and very well made. I personally wish the inseam was one-half inch longer as I'd likely get even more use/wear from them if they were a little longer. Captain's Landing service and delivery were excellent.

    I have worn this style for decades. Great fit, and long wearing. Your price is great with the free and fast shipping and no California sales tax. You're my go to place for these shorts.
