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.
My husband bought a few pairs of these shorts for work 3 years ago and is still wearing them. He liked them so much he decided to add a few more to the rotation. So we bought 2 more and the new ones are his "day off" pairs while the "old" pairs are strictly for work. Dickies always makes sure their articles of clothing are well made, and these are really no exception. The downside is that it takes a LONG time for them to soften up and get really comfortable. It probably doesn't help that we machine wash them but then hang them to dry - I think that preserves the quality and prevents excessive wear, but then it also prevents for the fabric to break down and get cozy. The way we dry them, they'll probably last forever.
