Thank you for your feedback.
They are just as described and fit just as expected.
Most people are right-handed, which means you hold the nail (or whatever) with your left hand and draw with your right.
I selected fit as expected, because i knew what to expect, i hope i don't screw anyone up over that.

    Pros:
    These shorts are great for skinny guyz like me. They fit a little on the loose side at first, but shrink after washing. I like them a little tight so that I do not have to wear a belt. Material wears well.
    Cons:
    The hammer loop is on the LEFT side. Most people are right-handed, which means you hold the nail (or whatever) with your left hand and draw with your right.

    Seems like every summer brings a new pair of "favorite shorts" and I am wearing my Carhartt Mens' Canvas Cell Phone work shorts as I write this review. Honestly, the fabric is not as "heavy" as Carhartt used to be, but no ones are. However, the fabric thus far has been durable and is not too course against the skin. The cell phone pocket works well and my iPhone rests securely in it.

    I normally wear a size 33 waist and found that I need one size larger for a comfortable fit. Otherwise, they fit well and are comfortable yet not baggy or sloppy in appearance. I like them and will buy other colors in this style. Carharrt remains one of the better made products in work clothing.

    The Carhartt canvas utility shorts fit well.I am 5'11" 165lbs. The length is just above the kneecap which I like.The shorts have generous front and back pockets.The right side pocket holds my dinosaur IPhone 3 with Otterbox.It may not hold a more current and larger phone.I bought two pairs and can't evaluate durability as they are a recent purchase.They were delivered on time.

    These are NOT the good old canvas Carhartt pants! They totally suck in comparison and are over priced for a good work pant.

    Carhartt needs to wake up and go back to the old way of doing things that worked well for years!!

    We have purchased Carhartt coats and insulated coveralls for my husband for years. They hold up so well I'm not sure how Carhartt turns a profit because we don't have to replace them very often. When my husband became a large equipment opterator we tried buying cheaper work clothes, but they wore out so quickly. We decided to put out just a little more money and go for Carhartt all the way! We've saved so much in the long run! He loves the shorts. He says the deeper pockets keep things from falling out. The relaxed fit makes them more comfortable. We just buy 2 pair every other year and cycle out the ones that have finally become totaly faded and finally started to fray at the hem. I don't think he's ever worn a hole in a pair. Now he dresses from head to toe...literally...in Carhartt.

    I ordered a pair of size 36 shorts and the waist seemed too small. More like a size 34. I think I might have just got a pair that was marked wrong. I returned them and ordered another pair of the same size and the size larger and we will see. I had an old pair that fit just fine. I compared the tags and the size, model, color were exactly the same so not sure why they didn't fit right. It wasn't like they were just a bit snug and needed to be broken in, they were uncomfortable major suck in the gut tight. When the new pair come I will post an update. I love my older pair of these shorts so I was disappointed when these didn't fit.

    UPDATE - So my second pair of shorts came and they fit just fine so I think I just received a pair of wrongly labeled shorts. The larger size I will just send back since I don't need them.

    I really liked these. I was a little hesitant about the canvas, but they feel good. I like the metal rivet closure button instead of a standard one, I think it will hold up better.

    The only reason for the 4 stars is the cell phone pocket is useless for modern phones. I have a Samsung 6 and the top of the phone comes to the top of the pocket. I'm a little leery of putting my cell phone in it and it staying, both from working and moving around, and from fingers of people in crowds. Maybe if it had a closure to it I'd feel better.

    I have for many years used exclusively Carhartt 34" waist garments for my business uniforms consisting of relaxed fit carpenter jeans and the washed duck shorts I live in although I prefer the weathered duck shorts but carhart discontinued them last year, big mistake. I just reordered 2 new jeans along with 2 pairs of these shorts instead of the washed duck that I'm currently using again, all 34". The jeans fit as expected while the shorts are at least 2 sizes too small. I had this same thing happen once before maybe 2 years ago. Sent them back as these are going back also. Carhartt's quality control has definitely gone down in the past few years probably due to out-sourcing to china and mexico. I'll be changing manufactures for sure maybe try Duluth Trading co. and can never go wrong with a good-ole pair of levi's
