I'm not a shorts guy but these may change my mind
I just simply like the way they fit and feel, I have not worn shorts in years, but I bought these at a Farm And Fleet on Sale when I was in a shopping mood, tied them on and have been looking to another pair since then. They just look good on me.

My Favorite Shorts
These are now my favorite pants/shorts. The material is so comfortable and the way the pockets are designed make these shorts so useful. I don't need a man bag with these shorts. Since I have both colors, I now want more color selection. I would really like these to be about 2" shorter.

My overall impression of the shorts is that they are a security guard shorts and I highly recommend them
I bought two pairs of these for work I am electrician and I like all the pockets but I found them too nice to wear so I wesr them casually but could use them for work later on when they wear a little bit One of the pockets has a smaller pocket inside with the zipper for safekeeping of money or keys they fit nice and the material dries quickly if you sweat or water gets on them
