Great Fit and Appearance

This is a review for a pair of large light chambray 6" cotton shorts.
I am happy that fashion trends are allowing American men to wear shorter shorts again. I am 5'8" and 200#. I wear 36 waist pants and jeans and size large shirts and t-shirts. So, short and stocky. When I wear longer shorts, I look even shorter and wider. These shorts are fashion forward for the hip crowd but traditional enough for other folks as well.
The fit is comfortable, not too loose, not too tight. The cotton fabric is fairly lightweight and feels like a chambray shirt. The side pockets are deep so I don't worry about items falling out. The back pocket is deep. The velcro tab is sometimes difficult to fasten but items stay in securely. The elastic goes all the way around and holds the shorts up but if I put things in the pockets the pants will slide down if I don't tie the drawstring. The string is a heavy blue and white cord so it coordinates with the color of the shorts themselves. The string is long enough to easily tie but not too long to distract. If you wear an untucked shirt, others are not likely to see it.
I previously purchased the same shorts in the 8" length in gray. Those are no longer available. The only difference is the 2" shorter length. The 6" shorts have the same sturdy construction and features as the 8" shorts.
Would I buy more of these? Absolutely. I keep looking to see if they're going on sale so I could add at least one more pair to my closet.
