Here are the versions on the Named site:
The pattern was clear and easy to follow. The only tricky part was ensuring the place where the wrap starts is nice and neat.
I made my version out of some cream herringbone linen I bought in Tessuti Melbourne several years ago:

and side, where the tie is:
I love these shorts. I am not sure the plain linen is the best fabric to use for visual impact, but they are super comfortable and a good weight for Sydney.
I did have a sizing issue in that they turned out quite a bit larger than expected, which means I need to pull the tie tighter and makes it look messy. As this was a pattern test I would not take this as necessarily true of the released pattern, and I will confess that I haven't checked the final release to see if the sizing is different.
I would like to make these again in a lighter weight fabric in the pants version - again I think they will be great for Sydney winter. I will definitely also be getting some of the other patterns from this collection - lots of lovely designs!
Ciao for now!
