I think I'm done trying to buy clothing on Amazon. The items I receive are never what I expect based on the description. I bought these shorts because a pair of the same model purchased 3 years ago have been my favorite. I loved those shorts because the many cargo pockets were protected by buttons instead of Velcro and there was the most perfect cell phone pocket on the right side. The shorts I received now use Velcro on half of the pockets. The "perfect" cell phone pocket is gone and was replaced by one that is too small even for an iPhone 6. These Lee shorts went from perfect to just ordinary and are no longer worth the price.
Belt is the main problem with these shorts. They are comfortable, durable, and fit well but the accompanying belt leaves little to be desired. It’s difficult to buckle, curls between the belt loops, and difficult to remove. I would buy the shorts again but the belt is horrible. They need to make these with a built in liner and belt. Fashion them after water shorts.
Wished they had a dedicated phone pocket like some others. Love the look of the shorts, but with the pocket design, if you put your wallet on one side and your phone on the other, you'll get "floppy shorts". The other Lees shorts have the dedicated phone pocket which is amazing (even for my 8s Plus with a case. Otherwise great and comfortable shorts, but not my go to as the others with the better pocket design are....
These run big. I am a 36"-38" waist, depending on what I ate for supper. I bought the 38" pair. They were huge and I had to return them. I loved the pockets and they seemed decent quality though. Lee makes great jeans. I also don't care for shorts that hang down to my knees. Shorts rubbing against the back of my knees drives me nuts. I'm sorry guys, but we all look like idiots wearing long shorts. I further researched and found 6" inseam shorts. I wish a major manufacturer (like Lee) would produce a 6" inseam cargo shorts. They would amazed how many 40+ years olds would buy them.
