To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As a larger guy (6'1, 300 lbs) with a 44 inch waist, it can be difficult to find a pair of shorts that fits well enough (lots of breathing room) and with a good length past the knee. These fit the bill perfectly. Along the aforementioned issues, tearing the shorts and having the button pop off are things that have plagued me. There's no button here, it's a hook and loop which has proven itself effective. I have also squatted and sat down/stood up without any issue (common for button to pop off while doing so). These shorts are great, I bought more than one.
Not sure how they come up with sizing. All my pants waist sizes are 34-36 but 36 in these are way too small. Measured my waist with a tape and got 44”. Ordered 44 and now so loose I can pull them right off. Going to try a 42 not sure what to think. The quality seems good but sizing not right at all
I know that fit, pockets and whatever else is subjective so it's hard to "review" clothing outside of whether or not it falls apart or lasts. So, my "review" is entirely based on what I would have liked to know before buying these shorts. The inseam is long, I knew this, but I didn't know how low the bottom of the seat sits, THEN the inseam. I've got short legs, which doesn't help the issue but these are 9inches past my knees. The secondly, the belt loops are incredibly tight for a larger belt like mine. It's 1.5in wide and a bit thick. I had to feed my belt through with the shorts off and with great effort. So, I hope you don't plan to use a large belt. The worst of the issues, the pockets suck. A lot. They are nice and wide at the top, but tapper very quickly as you go into the pocket. Granted, I have a Razer Phone 2, but it barely fits my phone, let alone my hand and phone in order to retrieve my phone from my pocket. I'm not sure how these are "work" shorts if the pockets are small, you basically can't use a heavy duty belt and the sizing is off. They are also very tight in the hip section. I always buy pants 2 sizes larger because I have big thighs and I also conceal carry. Normally 2 sizes bigger are massive on me in the waist and big in the hips and thighs, these are far from that, these fit like a snug correct size would in the hips, 1 size up in the waist but fine in the thighs.
While the material and look is fantastic, these run about a size small and, to my complete astonishment, the belt loops are too small. I have to really fight putting my belt on with these, loop by loop. It's a whole extended process. I have never seen this before, and I'm a little unsure about how I want to proceed with these. I'll probably make do for a while and then eventually send these off to the Goodwill. I got some other Dickies locally with some stretch to them and the belt loops are a normal size, and I would honestly probably rather buy new shorts again than fight with these weird shorts for years. Decent shorts, they are pants once you finally get them ready to wear, but they're too small in unusual ways. Buy cautiously.
This is the second time I have ordered Dickies shorts. Amazon lost the first package. Ordered so I would have fresh cloths for an event in WA. NOPE. Pissed but stuff happens. Reorder , fresh clothes anyway. I got the shorts today and they are to small. I ordered 2 sizes higher than my size (enjoy loose fits) and I have to fight to button them up. They are made in a country that I can not pronounce. Will not by Dickies again.
The waist of the shorts fits to size and was perfect, but I avoided purchasing the Waist size 44 "Big" because I dnt like how big the leg slots are & I couldn't seem to steer away from tht even though I ordered the size 44 "regular"
