Great look and feel, not too sure on quality
Bought these for our vacation to the Outer Banks last week. Really like the look of these shorts. Love having a zipper fly. Overall I really do like them, but have a couple small issues........ After only one week I am noticing some fraying or loose strings. Hope this is only because they are new and won't continue to get worse. Also they seam to have stretched a bit in the waste. At first, they fit PERFECT, but after a few days they got slightly bigger in the waste. So I started to feel like I needed to be kind of careful to pull them up sometimes cause people might not wanna see all that lol. Got lots of compliments on them though! Perfect length I think.
Fit: Feels true to size

In the late 1950s, Nancy and Walter Katin were in the business of making canvas boat covers, and the $7 billion surf wear industry of today was all but unimaginable. Yet one day a young man came into the Katins shop in Surfside California, complaining of the difficulty in finding a pair of swim shorts durable enough to stand up to the then-quirky pastime of surfboard riding. Walter went to his sewing machine and with of the sturdy boat canvas and whipped up the first pair of Kanvas by Katin surf trunks. The surfer was stoked.
Word of Nancy and Walter's creation quickly spread up and down the coast, and the Katins were suddenly in the surf trunk business. The American surf wear industry was born. By the time the sport of surfing boomed in popularity in the mid-1960s with the Gidget/Beach Boys-era, Katins were firmly entrenched as the grooviest surf trunk around. The Katins kept making their high quality surf trunks, selling them from the surfside store and through a network of surf shop dealers all over the western hemisphere. From the sixties to the seventies, virtually every top surfer wore Katins and all were proud to appear in surf magazine ads for their favorite trunks.
"Quality, durability and good looks has long been the Katin motto and it’s our attention to detail which continues to separate Katin from the rest of the surfing pack."
