Exchanged the shorts at Sears store for smaller size. Worked out great.
My husband is tall - long legs - and likes his shorts long. These did not fit that way, so we will need to return. No such animal as "One size fits all"
Found these shorts on the sale rack while picking up some other items that were suppose to be delivered for pick up. They are sturdy and great to wear with many pockets to place things. The only draw back is the back left pocket doesn't have way to secure your wallet, such as a button or even Velcro.
The waistband does not have elastic sides
