ABC Short 9"
I will hoard these
If they ever go on sale, if they are ever discontinued, I will buy as many pairs as possible and store them for myself and my posterity. They are amazingly comfortable and practical.

Great style but would like more mobility
I love the fabric, the length and the front zipper pocket! I do wish this had more material, like a gusset or something different (kinda like your commute short) so that when I'm squatting down it doesn't bind as much. other than that I like these ones a lot!

Fantastic Working in the Hospital/Everday Shorts
I work in hospitals doing rehabilitation work and these
shorts have been fantastic. I am constantly bending, sitting on the ground, performing ROM bed exercises on clients and these
shorts move with me, and are visually great.
I usually wear these with a button up and I really enjoy they way these feel and look.
If the dress code allows, and you are a male nurse/rehab assistant, physio, OT etc, these are great to wear on the job.

He LOVES the shorts
It was time to take the bf lulu shopping so he tried on every pair of shorts in the store (my idea). These were by far the most practical, comfortable, stylish, flattering, and well designed shorts for a decent price. They looked great on him, he is almost 6 feet with long legs and wears a 34. The 34 fit perfectly and was slim in the legs which really flattered his runners legs. If your hamstrings are your most muscular part then these might not work. They work best on a slim but toned leg.

fit is perfect (finally)
i couldn't tell from other reviewers whether the waist size for these shorts suffered from lululemon's spotty sizing. this short's predecessor, the daily short, was impossible to size correctly; they were 1 or 2 sizes too small in the waist, but buying a larger size meant you lost their slim fit in the legs.
these shorts thankfully don't have that issue. i have a true 30" waist and a size 30 in these shorts fits perfectly in the waist and everywhere else. if you want slim-fitting shorts, these are a great option.

Essential and worth every penny
Not too long ago the idea of spending this much on a pair of shorts would have seemed silly to me, but trust me that these are absolutely worth it. Probably the most comfortable pair of shorts I've ever owned. They stretch and breathe wonderfully and are very stylish on top of that. Good length and look for when you need to look a little nicer and the old baggy cargo shorts won't cut it.
I seriously cannot overemphasize how comfortable they are. They are not kidding with the "ABC" name, these are perfectly engineered for the male anatomy. These shorts remain comfortable in situations and positions where other shorts and pants have gotten tight or pinch-y. Highly recommended.

Versatility Meets Comfort
I got a pair of the ABC shorts shortly after my purchase of the ABC pants (also highly recommended). I'm 6'0/165 lbs and got a size 32 in navy.
The shorts have a trim cut that hits right above the knee. Most shorts like of this cut would feel borderline restricting, but the fabric on the ABC shorts is anything but. It has a nice weight, it's flexible, and most importantly, it's comfortable - which is super important for a bike commuter like myself. Initially wasn't a fan of the rear flap pockets, but they're easy to tuck in for a clean look. I now find it difficult to wear any other casual shorts because of how perfect this pair looks and feels. Easily my go-to pair of shorts for spring/summer.
The only thing I dislike about these shorts is the zipper pocket within the right front pocket. Like many others, I sometimes put my hands in my pocket and am surprised at how annoying it is with the zipper rubbing against my hand. On the bright side, it's forced me to keep my hands out of my pockets, so there's that.

Everyone needs these shorts!
These shorts are so comfortable! The fit is perfect and are much better then any other shorts lulu has ever had. The fit is on the more trendy side and they look good with a nice button down or with a casual tee. They can definitely be dressed up!
