Perfect shorts for tall people, iPhone's and dirt...
on July 16, 2013
Being tall ( 6'5" ) one of the greater challenges in the search for clothing that fits is shorts. And, in case you haven't noticed, at the time of writing cargo shorts are way out of style. I got my first pair of these a while back on a whim. I was looking for long ( tall ) shorts, but I didn't want to look like a teenager. As a tall guy, now I look like I'm wearing a more normal length short rather than bordering on showing too much thigh when sitting etc. I wear them with button down short sleeve shirts and it's the perfect short for me.
A couple other pluses. First, there is a right side pocket perfect for my iPhone ( I don't use an iPhone cover by the way; risky I know). Second, having a young child and being known to drop food on myself, these clean up really, really well - they're Dickies...
Now, for those that are first time Dickies buyers you need to understand something about Dickies. It is a stiffer material, but this is a good thing! One, they will last a long time. Two, they won't look like a wrinkled mess the first time you take them out of the drier. Three, they have a nice crisp look every time you put them on. But be warned they may give a wider than normal preview of your junk (hopefully your junk is covered...) upon first few wearings when you sit down and kick back with your legs open.
