If you know Carhartt products, you will love these Twill Work shorts for the summer. They have a firm hand when you first get them, but will soften after a few washes. The twill fabric is rugged, just what you would expect from Carhartt. I am 5'10", 135 lbs and I feel these shorts run a bit small in the waist. I went with the 34 waist and the fit is very good. Just enough room to tuck your shirt in comfortably, and I always wear a belt to fine tune the fit. These shorts are definitely on the longer side. They fall probably 1.5 to 2 inches past my knee cap, sitting comfortably on my hips. Work stylie, durable product, and at $30, how can you go wrong? I would highly recommend these if you like longer style Twill walk shorts a la Dickies and Ben Davis.
