Good workhorse of a short.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 11"
    Weight: 235 lbs
    Size Purchased: 36

It's hard to beat these shorts for the price. They are pretty stiff, I have used them regularly for a couple of months and they are still stiff. They are also very long, I think mine run a good 3 - 4 inches below the knee. They feel like they will last a very long time and all in all a decent short.

Shants!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 165 lbs
    Size Purchased: 36

So after reading the reviews I decided to size up from a 34 to a 36. Normally I wear a size 34 short and I am glad I went up to the 36. The waist on the 36 fits well, but these shorts do run small.

The shorts are made from quality materials and seem like they will last quite a while. The material is rough to the touch, similar to a pair of shorts from Carhartt. However, that being said, I don't think these will last as long as a pair of work shorts from Carhartt. But for the price these shorts are AWESOME!

If you like a loose, long fitting short then these are right up your alley. If you would rather have a more trim fit, and something that doesn't hang much past your knees then you will want to look elsewhere. These shorts fit very loose in the legs and have a longer cut. Think mid calf length in the correct waist size. However, combined with a fresh pair of Timberlands, a shirt that is two sizes to large and a flat brim cap, these shorts fit right in.

These are WORK shorts.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Think Vans version of Dickies/Carhartt shorts. the material is a cotton/polyester blend that is stiff and can be abrasive at first but that washes out quickly. they are NOT board shorts or soft cotton. Size up because they do run small in the waist. i got my usual 32 and can barely get them closed. the cut of the short otherwise is great though

Good shorts,

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Good shorts, thick material a little stiff at first, may need to wash a few times to get them broken in. They are only 35% cotton, 65% polyester so they don't really shrink at all . The waist runs small as the reviews so do size up I'm normally a 36 and went to a 38. Downside is the shorts are very roomy in the legs, while very comfortable, they are very baggy.

Good Enough For Me

  • Fit: True to size

I was surprised to show the lower star reviews on these shorts. They fit just as I expected them to, I bought my regular size. And they are just simple thicker casual shorts. They look nice and have held up for me.

Ehh

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I like theses shorts but i read all of the reviews about them being small so i got a size bigger. i am normally size 32 so i got the 34s but they are very baggy and wish i had goten the right size.

Size Up

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

These shorts are very durable and have a good feel to them as well, they will for sure stand up to skating, working on your car, to busing and waiting tables in the summer time. You will want to size up though they fit tight in the waist.

They do fit tight.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I'm a 34 waist and per other reviews, ordered the 36...but I'm not sure about the other review that says they are tight...I felt like I was gangster about to bust of this joint. I gots my .40 and pack that sucka in the waist!

I'm 6'2" 175 lbs and they were incredibly baggy on me...I'll be returning them...because I no longer live the thug life.

awesome looking shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Awesome colab on these shorts. Fit is a bit tight, I would recommend sizing up for sure. Other than that they are pretty solid and seen really durable.

Love these shorts they are a bit tight

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

these shorts run really tight. I'm hoping that they loosen up after i wash them.

Responded on

yeah i figured that out.. decided to give them to my brother..

Really tight.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Well, they don't run true to size (either that or I'm not really a 34). I'll need to lose a few lbs to wear these bad boys. Pretty simple, get 1-2 sizes bigger than you'd otherwise get and you'll be fine.

More than a size tight

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Waistband says 32", can barely even get the suckers buttoned. Feels like a 30" at most. Returning. :(

Run A Little Tight

These run a little tight. They are also pretty stiff, like a Carhartt short, but they soften up a bit after being washed.

What is the inseam of these shorts?

Awesome shorts!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Well made and the fit is nice.

below or above the knee?

below or above the knee?

Responded on

These will fall right at the knees for a lot of people. They have a 12" inseam if that helps.
