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 other reviewers have noted, these are sized a little small. I would recommend as the others do, buy a size larger than what you typically wear and you will likely receive a pair that fits great. These shorts are very lightweight and breathable which is a huge plus. I like longer shorts and these fit my liking to a tee. At 5'10" and wear I generally wear my pants, these sit about an inch to an inch and a half below my knee cap. Perfect.
These aren't 5 stars in my opinion only because:
1. I think they are slightly overpriced. Yes you are buying a quality product but at $25 a pair, they are a bit salty for my liking. If these were priced in the $15-18 range, I would be much more satisfied, and would certainly purchase more pairs.
2. When you order these from amazon they ship (at least mine did) in "economy packaging" which equates to a thin plastic bag. Absolutely no problem there, i'm all about low cost packaging, the only problem was they have an odor to them. By odor I mean they straight up stink. I had to wash them twice before I was comfortable wearing them. I say this because I don't know if it's the straight from the factory plastic bag packaging that caused it or if I just got a funky smelling pair. It's worth noting.
All in all, they are a pretty good buy. A little cheaper and no smell and I would have rated at 5 stars for a quality product.
The quality of Dickies shorts is excellent, and they are really comfortable through the legs, crotch, and seat. Unfortunately, the waist size was significantly off with the pair I ordered. What I ordered was a 40 waist size, which was reflected on the label but not reflective of the true waist size. My son wears a size 36 waist and these just fit on him. Not sure if I received a mislabeled pair or if they just run that small. Either way, definitely not true to size based on my experience.
I really love these shorts. They fit right and have a good length. Finding cargo shorts that aren't too baggy and a good knee length has been a little challenging for me.
I have three cons. First, the front pockets are shallower than I would like and, consequently, their opening is a little small. Second, the cargo pockets keep getting caught on the cabinet handles in my kitchen and I know I'm going to rip or break something soon because of them. Third, I would like larger belt loops to accommodate wider belts.
We debated on whether or not to send this back because the waist was slightly smaller than his other waistbands - the same size - and the legs were much wider than expected. He otherwise loved them for lightness, appearance, and functionality. The legs were also long enough to cover his knee surgery scars.
I am impressed with the comfort of these shorts and the number of pockets. Unfortunately, the belts loops are too small to accommodate my larger belts on which I hang my Leatherman Super Tool. With great effort, I have to force the belt through the loops with the shorts off.
I needed some long lasting work shorts for my job doing outside grounds keeping. My prior shorts would rip and snag. These are durable, easy to wear, comfortable and the material is of good quality. The size is pretty true to fit and it does not have a button but a slide type of button. Works for my job and I don't have to worry about rips, tears or my butt showing
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"
I love Dickies clothing. The product overall is very good. These shorts are nice and loose fitting which is perfect for me. My only gripe is that they are longer than what I expected. This is the reality of buying clothes online. Overall good buy.
