Styles mentioned in this thread:
You are in LA, right? Check both out in person at Mohawk. I think black batik is the way to go. Not too keen on the slightly lighter blue in the Foulard Andover. But honestly, both pieces are pretty cool.
True to size in my experience.
Mil shorts are completely different cut and shape from the Fatigue shorts, they are longer in length and more tapered and fitted.

Tried this on today and was surprised to find that the Large fit best; the M had pulling in the shoulders when buttoned and looked too short (and I am already short). I now fit S, M, or L depending on the piece, so that's pretty funny (and I'm guessing XS fatigues would complete the set).
I have not yet but I will. Love, love, love them:
- Super lightweight
- Super big - size down one size
- Super comfy - loose fitting even after sizing down
- A bit cropped: Length is shorter than previous fatigues (Example: My 34 size AW13 fatigues are 33" inseam. For SS14, I need an M: Waist is at least 35" so I have to use the strings. Inseam is ~30 - 31". Do not even worry about thighs. If I fit, you fit)
- Measurements on the Bureau Belfast site are very accurate
Not a huge ripstop fan but they blew me away because the fabric is so lightweight. These pants are perfect for every day, not flashy but super comfy basics. They pair exceptionally well with the print jackets this season (Batik, Foulard, etc.). I will get the olive one and likely the blue one.
Now what's up with the brown window pane stuff? That seems to sell like hot cakes.
