Finally, the best shorts ever. I have three colors and rotate them all summer, that's it. Durable, comfortable, looks great to boot. Okay, some drawbacks: smartphone in smartphone pocket tends to swing over and slap the outer thigh when walking. A slight annoyance. Also, legs are long enough so that crotch can be tight when rock climbing, doing yoga, etc. But, I like the leg length, so I put up with this. A diamond-shaped inset in the crotch would solve that problem, but then there would be more seams to fail in the crotch (where Carhartts tend to fail, or so I've heard.)
Carhartt Work Short
Great work short! Very durable, well constructed and comfortable. This is the second pair I have purchased, based on how much I liked the first pair. Great for work, sports, traveling or casual dress. Sizing was perfect. Heavy duty cotton canvas takes work abuse and still holds up while looking great. Cell phone pocket is ideal, the other pockets are just the right size. Best value for the money. Would recommend them to anyone.
Great Work Shorts
Very comfortable. The cell phone pocket is the perfect size for a smart phone. I'm 5'9" and most shorts are too long. These shorts have an 8.5" inseam and stop right at the top of my knee cap.
