Rated 2 out of 5 by SusieL Style not flattering
I bought 4 colors of these shorts last summer and was hoping that a restyled version would be offered now.
I hardly wore them at all because the small had a waistline that was too tight yet the hips were baggy and the medium had a waistline that was way too big and the hips were huge. The flat front and pleats made the waist impossible to alter easily. The side pockets made it impossible to alter the hips easily. The fit was just not right. Unlike others I thought the length was fine.
I, too, would love a simpler linen design for shorts AND a simpler design for ankle length linen pants that would replace the flat-front styling. Something more tailored in the hips and legs and with an elastic waistband.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AlexFL Great fabric and easy style, but not for curvies
Wanted to keep these, but too straight for my curvy figure

Rated 4 out of 5 by KathleenB Worth hemming!
Finding shorts that I love is a nightmare and these may be the first ones I've liked in years...thick, wonderful linen and comfy elastic in the waist. I'm ready for summer. Yes, they are too long but at 5'2" that is usually the case. These are definitely worth hemming!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nonesuch Too wide, too long
I got these shorts in a plus size. I should have listened to the reviewer who said they were too long. In general they just seemed big and uncomfortable on. They're going back.

I like the material; very nice quality but the best part is the lining of the pockets which is nicely done!

Rated 1 out of 5 by watchintennis So Sad.. too long!
My kids play tennis so I am out in the heat all summer long. Linen shorts are my go-to. These are just too darn long and wide. I feel like a clown. The linen shorts you had a couple of years ago with the knit waist were fantastic and I completely wore them out. PLEASE bring these back!! I am desperate!

Rated 3 out of 5 by justmindy I love my J. Jill!
I am a 5' 8" woman who lives her life in J. Jill Women's clothing. This short is too long for a short and too short for a Bemuda short. A few years ago I purchased every color of the linen short with a full elastic waist band and that is cut at least two inches shorter than this short. I am making a strong plea for a return of that short. I would purchase two of each color without hesitation. Several other comments make this request too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Southernliving Too long!
I wish J Jill would bring back the linen shorts they made several years ago. They had a shorter inseam and were full elastic waist. These are too long, and the I don't like the flat front. I ket hoping they would change them back but this is like the third year in a row for these extremely long shorts. Sigh...I am off to other retailers to locate some shorts.
