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.
These are supposed to be a 42 but are exactly the same size as my size 40 shorts. Also the belt is extremely short. The shorts fit but the belt is very difficult to do up. Size 42 shorts should come with an appropriately sized belt.
I bought these to replace an old pair that was extremely comfortable that I finally wore out after wearing them two to three days a week during the spring, summer and fall for a few years. These were by far my favorite pair of shorts, hence the wearing them so much. My local stores were all out of them in my size but thankfully Amazon still had them in stock!
The shorts are baggy and airy and are comfortable for a bigger guy like me. The included cloth belt tends to bunch up (and rust if you wash it in the shorts too many times, whoops!) but is not attached to the shorts and can be replaced with any belt of your choice.
The shorts have 2 regular side pockets, 2 rear pockets and 2 lower side cargo pockets for wallets, cell phones, pocket knives, knick knacks and anything else you want to keep in them. The cargo pockets are especially large. The cargo and rear pockets have buttons (2 functional and 2 spare on each cargo pocket, 1 button on each rear pocket) that allow you to keep things in the pockets where they belong. The button flaps can also be tucked into the pockets to allow for easy unobstructed access and don't interfere with my wallet. One thing to note though is that the rear buttons can get caught on things if you wear them exposed (flap tucked in) and I have lost one of the buttons already, thankfully it came off cleanly and they come with 4 spare matching buttons. The rear and cargo pockets also have an extra square of fabric sewn in on the inside to help reinforce the openings. The fabric in the inner side pockets however is not as sturdy as the exterior material and if you aren't careful it is easy to tear small holes near the top of the lining (have done so on 2/3 pairs I've owned).
If you aren't careful to remove them from the dryer right away they will get slightly wrinkly as they are not wrinkle-free however it gives them a relaxed rustic look so it isn't really an issue. If you are concerned by this you should be able to fix this by quickly removing them from the dryer and folding them or touching them up with a hot iron later.
Pros: -Comfortable -Airy -Lots of pockets -Free belt?
Functional pockets, these been a lot of orders I've made on short that the pockets are just for show. Made in China shorts that fitment were too off 38 felt like 36 or 40 felt like 42. These are true to size and give a little room for stretch, belt loops are thick so carabiner clips with keys will fit. Cellphone pocket on the left fasten down with Velcro making it easy in and out operation. Buttons can be secured with one hand. Will buy again, can be used year round.
I like the belt that comes with these shorts. It matches the style perfectly, and is easily adjustable. Overall, I like these shorts because I like cargo shorts, and I really like the fit these shorts have. Of course, they have plenty of pockets, some sealed with buttons, and the big pockets sealed with Velcro. If you don't like Velcro or cargo shorts, this is not the pick for you.
