3.0 out of 5 stars Dockers is cutting corners on fabric, May 18, 2014

This review is from: Dockers Men's Cargo Flat-Front Short (Apparel)
If you have not bought any Dockers for several years you may be surprised by the quality of their new products. They are using a much lighter weight fabric than they used to. This appears to be happening across their product line and I have found the same issue even in their pants being sold in high end brick and mortar stores. The fabric in these snags and runs like no other pants I own. Don't let a cat sit on your lap if you want to keep these looking good.

These shorts run slightly large, or at least the pair I received does. Sold as a size 34, the waist actually measures 36" inside. I hoped they would shrink when washed, but I measured before and after washing and found no difference.

The cargo pockets are kept closed with a large button. I appreciate that there is no velcro used in these shorts and there are no back pocket flaps. When I get pants with any velcro I always cut it off because I have found that it inevitably tears up upholstery.

There is an inner pocket in the right front pocket to allow you to slip in your cell phone and keep it separate from keys. The depth of this inner pocket is not quite as much as I would like, and my keys often seem to find their way into that inner pocket along with the cell phone. All manufacturers use light weight fabric for pocket bags, but Dockers seems to have gone to something even lighter than most.

As some others have mentioned, the inseam is 10" which I consider right for a cargo short. I like the fit, but that obviously is a personal thing.

I live in Hawaii and wear cargo shorts every day year-round. These look good, other than the dozens of snags, but will certainly not last as long as I had hoped.
