I've been wearing lululemon for years and have tons of their clothing. The last few years their quality has gone downhill which has been the perfect opportunity for me to try out these shorts. Being in AZ, you wear shorts almost year round. These are extremely comfortable, fit perfectly, and have just the right amount of stretch. These are a lot like lulu's shorts, but have a snap button at the top of the fly which I like a lot better. I would say the quality is better (stitching, material feel, etc). What I like most is how they fit. They're in between a slim fit and regular fit. They are true to size. I'm a 32 in lulu, so I ordered 32 in these and they fit perfect. I have quite a bit of items now from Rhone and have not been disappointed yet. Please keep the quality up! Thanks!
