Comfortable and practical, this style of cargo pants and shorts is a go-to for good reason!

Features a relaxed fit and natural waist height, with pants and shorts lengths included, and an enclosed elastic waist with optional faux fly look.  The Cargo Pockets are uniquely placed on the front of the legs instead of the more common side placement, and are perfect for decorative topstitching.

    These shorts are such a good fit. I like the flat front which sits very neatly. Instructions easy to follow with lots of useful tips for making your shorts even better.
