I got these in a large for my son, who is 5’10”, about 180. But they’re going to have to go to my brother who is 5’8″ and around 140. A size large really is equal to a US medium. They also took quite awhile to arrive, about a month, which is fine for me, but I wanted to make note of it if you’re wanting them for summer, you need to plan on the shipping time.
They can be used as swimming shorts, but as others have noted, there is no mesh lining. The fabric is a medium weight, so as shorts they work fantastic, and really as swim trunks, they would still work. They have nice deep pockets. What I really like about them is the drawstring. It threads through the interior lining, and then there are two rivets that they feed through to tie outside, so it gives another level of security, assuring the string will stay in place. But, the string is a bit short, around 6 inches exposed. The colors in the one I received are bright color blocks with contrasting stitching, and all of that is done nicely.
I’m the one wearing the shorts in the picture, my waist is 29, my hips are 36, and these are a size large.
