Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 September 2020
I bought these shorts with trepidation due to the vastly differing reviews on Amazon. Some said they were far too small and some said miles too big. One reviewer even said they were cut funny and cut into his bum crack uncomfortably. My son really needed something similar for work and I couldn't find a pair of black cargo shorts anywhere else so in the end I just went for it and ordered his normal size with my fingers crossed that they would fit OK.

When they arrived he was out so I laid them up against another pair of his shorts, bought from Tesco that I knew fitted him well and the waistband was EXACTLY the same size and sure enough, when he came home and tried them on, they fitted him fine. He always wears a size 30 inch waist which is a fraction loose on him but he uses a belt and prefers them comfy. I asked him if they cut anywhere or were loose anywhere else and he did a few Ninja type moves in them to demonstrate that they were not uncomfortable, did not cut into him or restrict his movement in any way. They are not made from a stretchy fabric but the material is very nice and the shorts look smart, despite the pockets on the leg. There is no sag or loss of shape if you use the pockets, provided they are not over-loaded.

So, if you are thinking about buying these shorts and are put off by the contradicting reviews, I would just go for it. Different retailers have different ideas about sizing and some cut stingily and others generously so I would just buy your normal size and have a little faith.
