Sad they didn’t work out for me

Beautiful pair of shorts! Quality and color. But the fit is so awkward. The waist was way too tight and the thigh area way too big. It literally makes no sense. I sized up hoping they’d fit but nope. These are made to fit a very slim waist with longer legs maybe. I’m 4’10 petite with 25” waist. Retuned twice.

Not true to size

These sizes are so small compared to other brands.

too big

so i know la apparel tends to run big, and i measured my waist at 31”. ordered these in a 32- and they’re huge. way too big. i like the fit but don’t order up unless you’re between sizes. other than the size, they’re super nice. i just feel like they’re gonna fall off sometimes lol

Returned, these are not like the old American apparel shorts. Quality is good but not as good as the AA ones. Also the length is kinda awkward? They weren’t as short as they are in the pic and the thick inner thigh seam was really uncomfortable. Couldn’t close my legs all the way!

Holy Grail Shorts

These are literally the perfect shorts - they're fitted in the waist, super high rise, and a great wash. These are my only denim shorts and I wear the **** out of them! Unfortunately, this means I also busted the zipper on my current pair, but they're so hearty and well-made I'm still wearing them regardless, they just take a little extra effort to zip up.

Bought a size 26 and they fit great! I’m 5’8 and about 130 pounds. Love em!

Quality shorts!!

High quality rigid denim, waist runs a bit small. I may recommend sizing up especially if you are between sizes.

The Perfect Shorts

I've been looking for these forever! Great cinching at the waist with wider leg openings for my thicker thighs . Gives a great hourglass look.

if i wasn't already sold on LAA's quality, these did it for me

i'm 5'10", 145ish lbs, with big things and a relatively small waist, so it's difficult to find shorts that really fit. these are the most comfortable and high quality denim shorts i have ever worn. they don't ride up at all, but they also aren't frumpy. with a perfectly tapered waist, ideal length, and just enough room in the thighs, they put Levi's, AA, and Everlane to shame (sorry not sorry). comfortable, stylish, high quality, ethically made, and affordable at that-- you can't go wrong, especially when you consider the responsiveness of LAA's customer service team these are THE superior high-waisted short
