Good Fit, Great Look
These are typical Taboose material - durable, kind of a cross between denim and corduroy, but not as heavy as corduroy. I normally wear XLs in TA shorts for some extra room, but these XLs were too large, so I exchanged for L and they fit perfectly. These are not shorts for a 100 degree day with 90% humidity, but perfect for Pacific coast beaches and most spring, early summer and fall days.

Decent shorts, fit a trifle small
I've had these shorts about a year now, they wear well, are extremely comfortable, and very durable. After a long, hot summer here in Dallas, they have held up to everyday use showing very little wear and tear. Fit is a just a tad small for the sizing. I'd consider purchasing them again if they came in more colors.
Sizing a problem for me.
First let me say that these shorts are great. They may be a little on the heavy side for hot summer days for some people but I like the weight and quality. I ordered a pair of large British Khaki and a pair of large Indigo. After washing the British Khaki fit great but the Indigo were a little snug. Also the Indigo pair had two more belt loops than the Khaki so I guess they were made in different factories and the cut of the Indigo was slightly smaller. Ok, so I thought I'd return the Indigo and try a pair of large Dark Grey. Well the Dark Grey were cut the same way as the Indigo with the extra belt loops. I really wanted a second pair so I thought if the Indigo and Dark Grey were being made in a different factory with a slightly smaller cut I would try an X large in the Dark Grey. Just got the x large yesterday and guess what...these must have been made in the same factory as the British Khaki because they had the two less belt loops so now these are too large. None of this makes any sense to me. That they would make different colors or even different sizes in different factories seems very odd. Anyway I guess I'll be sending the latest pair of x large Dark Grey back and only have one pair of these cargo shorts.
Stylish, Functional Shorts
One of the best cargoes in my collection. Sturdy material that can handle keys, wallet, smartphone, etc. in the cargo pockets without feeling overloaded and floppy. I have all 3 colors; the only oddity is that the bottom of the cargo pockets are sewn down at the bottom in the blue and grey but not in the khaki. Spoke with a CSR and he said they were all like that.
I bought one pair of these and liked them so much I bought two more in each of the available colors. They fit very well and they soften up after a little wearing and washing. The leg length is perfect. They are made of a little heavier cloth which is good because I clearly will wear these for a few years.
A bit more than I normally pay for shorts. I am happy with the quality. Durable and can tell they will only get better with time. Button came off before first wearing, while irritating - did not affect my overall rating.
Bought this as a replacement for worn out Eddie Bauer shorts. Fit great, look is casual but with a little more class that rugged cargo shorts. 10"" inseam is a little long...I am 5'11"".
Great looking, durable wearing shorts
These shorts really fit the bill. Dressy enough for the marina evenings, but durable enough for sailing, fishing, and hiking. Great product for a great price. More color options would be awesome!
bought these twice!
the fabric used for these shorts has great texture and strength - thought they might be too hot for florida summer wear, but they're very comfortable. would LOVE to get these in a longer length; they're great on the golf course!
Great shorts, love the material
Very comfortable and great fit. Love the unusual material.
Comfortable & All Purpose
Very comfortable for cargo. Fabric is med/weight, soft & has almost corduroy look, but not thick. Nicely designed w/stretch waist in back -- run very slightly large for size. 10"" seam is nice and legs not too large/baggy. Bought navy colour & seems to wash well. Definitely would recommend! Stylish for cargo shorts.
