Beware if Allergic to Elastic
Reviewed in the United States on February 15, 2018
These shorts are a good deal, fit as they should, and should last many years. I, however, am going to return mine [or give them to the Salvation Army]. I bought 1 pair of the navy and 3 pair of the black. The shorts themselves are 100% cotton as advertised--but the entire inner-waist band is a FULLY EXPOSED, expandable, non-cotton material [probably elastic]. [I have other shorts from Champion, KingSize, Casual Male in which there is an expandable (probably elastic) waist band--but they are all covered completely in the cotton material of the shorts.]
I ordered 4 pair, wore 1 pair of these shorts for a day or so, then washed them all at the same time. For the next 4 or 5 days or so, I wore these shorts almost all day everyday [just as I have with my other all-cotton shorts]--but then I discovered a terrible rash around my waist [and when you wear 2x shorts, that's a lot of waist]. I gave up wearing them, ordered from Amazon 4 pair of KingSize shorts at a similar price, and 8 or 9 days later they arrived and I have worn them since then without any rashes. They have an expandable waist band, but whatever lets them expand is covered with the same material of the shorts--COTTON.
