Columbia Brownsmead II Shorts for Men
Good shorts, but low quality
I bought these shorts to wear around the house while doing yard work. However they only lasted a year and half before they started ripping at the pockets, and now they have an almost 2 inch tear in the seat. I have cheap shorts from a competitor which have lasted longer. Would not recommend these to anymore.

Hard to find shorts like these
I shopped for shorts at a half-dozen department and sporting goods stores trying to find shorts that would not hit me at/or below the knee. It seems all the shorts are trying to copy board shorts that are like the pedal pusher shorts my sisters wore when I was a child. These come in 8 inch inseam and that places the hem about an inch above my knees...perfect. I had to send back the 34 inch waist that I ordered as they actually measured 36 inches. Reordered the 32 inch waist and it measures 34. Order a size smaller than you do in your other shorts.
I live in Phoenix, AZ and live in shorts during the summer. I have only worn these two days, but they appear to be well made and other than the incorrect waist size, they look to be perfect every day wear.

size is not what it should be
I have these shorts already so I ordered another pair the same size I have and they are not even close to the right size. size 36

These shorts are of great quality and comfort.
I wear shorts everyday of the year and these shorts look good at a backyard party, the golf course, or at a causal restaurant. The material is soft yet very strong and the quality of workmanship shows very well at the stitching on the pockets, seams and hems. These shorts are very durable as well. I had a few pairs previously that lasted for several years. I purchased 3 pairs and will be buying the other colors that are available. Overall experience: EXCELLENT !
