A214729 - Kelly by Clinton Kelly Fly Front Denim Shorts
Great City Short!
These are very well made city shorts! I purchased them in blue. I've worn them on casual Fridays to work but are great for bunch, weekend trips with my sorority sisters or evenings out...looks great with my MK pumps and RL white jacket down to my Born thong sandals. You will get multiple compliments. I did order up a size based on the advise of other reviews. I'm glad I did. I usually wear a size 6-8, and decided to order the 10 for extra wearing ease.
Quality but style so not for me
I so wanted to love these shorts as the other ladies who did in their reviews. I was so excited to receive them and tried them on immediately. As fast as I tried them on I could not take them off fast enough. I felt like an old lady in them. Not fit for a petite woman with curves.Needless to say they went back.
Best made shorts ever purchased
I wasn't expecting much when I purchased these for less than $30 recently. Boy was I surprised! When I opened the mailing bag and examined the shorts, I could hardly believe my eyes! The quality of the fabric, the consistency of the coloring, the seaming along the waistband and legs, the firm but forgiving elastic along the waist, all spoke of a garment that would cost many times what I paid. I have always appreciated Clinton on his tv show, and I now I have something else to appreciate him for!
These are the perfect shorts, I have both the blue and the black. They are casual and elegant. The fabric is a medium stretch, medium weight (not thin). The classic tailoring and the fit allowed me to size down from a 12 to a 10 with no problem. Needless to say, these were a wonderful purchase.
Nice color, Terrible fit
The length of the shorts was perfect for me, but the fit in the waist felt so tight. I don't think the pants are true to size. They were slimming and I liked the color. Thats why it got two stars. However, I had to return these and continue to search for some other pair I like better. Too bad because I figured with Clinton being on "What not to wear" he would have a better idea how to fit clothes on a woman. Unfortunately I was wrong. There should be more women designers, so these issues won't come up any longer!!
Well made, make me look thinner, nice fabric. Lots of stretch.
I don't see any problem with the zipper on these shorts....I ordered the denim in a size 4 figuring I would naturally have to take in the waist (as usual) When I got them, they fit great everywhere except that extra 3/4 inch in the waist. Then I remembered someone's review about the "adjustable" waist..In I went to discover the most ingenious elastic w/butoons that allowed to get the PERFECT FIT around my waist without any bulk or tailoring! GREAT ENGINEERING ON THESE SHORTS.I went right in and ordered the black. THe material is not cheaply thin..looks expensive and hangs beautifully!!! I Love them!
I loved the way these shorts were constructed. However, I have to rate them 2 stars because the zippers were defective in both pair. I tried them on too late to return them so I had to have both zippers replaced by my cleaners which cost as much as my initial payment for one pair of the shorts!
Super shorts but I guess I am no longer my usual size. Seriously without a pull on elasctic waist I need to go up a size.
More Colors PLEASE!!!!
Got one ,loved them and then got the other color. I was desperate for a longer short (5' 9") and these hit the top of my knee The waist adjust is a great feature. Just about the only thing I wore all summer,even to work. Would absolutely buy any other color that was available. How about tan, charcoal, or brown -- olive?
I did order up a size and the fit is perfect. I have a full bottom and tummy and these shorts hide it all. They make me look thinner than I am. Very classic in styling. They remind me of a Talbots classic cut and style. After receiving the blue pair, I ordered the black pair. I would have given them a five if I hadn't had a problem with the hook and eye coming loose and I also had a problem with some zipper stitches coming loose. I liked them so much though I decided paying for a Taylor to fix them was a good solution. Cost was the same as return shipping.
Cute but not good for my shape
I really wanted these shorts to work. I liked the weight of the fabric and they looked good from the front but they needed more fullness in the back at the top of the thigh/bottom area. They were a little tight but would have fit if cut just a little fuller there and not so straight. These probably won't work as shorts for someone of average height or shorter. I'm 5'9" and they hit me at the knee.
