- Clifton Springs

Nice fitting short. Easy to wear. Did get a larger size than the Bengajean I normally wear.

Great quality, the shorts are tighter than the Bengajeans so these are a bit tight on me, but still very happy with them. I am always a size small with BI but I might go up a size with the next pair of shorts.

I love my white shorts--have just ordered a second white pair and am about to order the same in denim. They are a great fit, so comfortable and wash well. I particularly like the length - most flattering. You certainly have a winner with Bengajean fabric -- I now have 4 pairs of jeans because they wash and wear so well.

Ordering and purchasing online is super easy. Garment arrived earlier than expected and it fits perfectly.

I love these shorts! Have bought most of the colours over several years. They wear and wash very well and fit well and comfortably. The knee-length works for travel to places like Bali, Thailand, Japan for culturally appropriate visits to temples. The length is also smart for big-city sight-seeing in Tokyo etc. Thanks Blue Illusion for the comfort, value and style of these shorts!

Love this style of short. Suits my body really well. Very flattering to wear with a longer top or shorter top. Very versatile. Hope this style never disappears. I bought the black and white ones and would love to see the denim ones come back into stock.

Please bring back the dark denim shorts in this style, White is good, but not slimming for bigger people.
