These are my favorite shorts, that I've found, especially in the price range.
I'm a stocky guy, about 5'9", and I like that these shorts have an 8" inseam. Most other shorts are too long, and it looks like I'm wearing clam-diggers. These 8" Haggars are the perfect length, staying comfortably above my knee.
I like the elastic expandable waist. That way I don't have to admit to myself that I probably wear a size larger than I buy. Especially after beer and pizza.
The 60cotton/40poly blend means I never have to iron them, and after nearly two years, they show little signs of wear. I wear these shorts all day, averaging 6 days a week, in the office and at home. I have 6 pairs that old, and am ordering more.
I like the plain, flat front styling. I'm 40-something, and look kinda goofy in huge cargo shorts. The pockets are also deep enough, so that they don't empty their contents into the dark void under the driver's seat of your automobile...or into the couch.
The only problem? After about 1.5 years, the buttons started falling off of all of them. So you can just sew them back on, if they're not worn out. It could have something to do with wearing a size smaller than I should.
The price is great on these, and being available on Amazon Prime makes the deal that much sweeter!
