Carhartt Men's Utility Short, Tan, 34
on July 26, 2012
I bought these shorts because of the inseam length. I have long legs, and the standard men's shorts(inseams between 9 & 11 inches), leave a lot of my thighs exposed. The best shorts I have, are 2 pairs of cargo pants, that shrunk(in length) to the point where I took them to a tailor, and had the inseam cut down to 15". Now they come down to mid-knee cap, which is a bit long. These shorts have a 13" inseam, which is just about perfect, but the waist is very loose, and I have to wear a belt with them, or within an hour, or so, I would look like a kid with his underwear hanging out. The bigger problem, though, is that the cargo pockets are cut at angles, with velcro closures, which makes it easy to keep things from falling out, but not so easy to remove things(like when your phone is ringing). Because of the length, I thought these shorts would be the answer, for me, but I'll have to keep looking.
