I am excited to be back, and writing about sweat shorts.
I took a little break for the holidays. And what better way to start off again than reviewing a pair of sweat shorts I got for Christmas.
- Roughly $24
- Sizes XS-XXXXL
- 12 inch inseam
- 3 pockets (two side and one back right)
- Twill tape drawstring
- 60% cotton 40% polyester fabric
- Unfinished hem
These shorts have a very slim build. They do not have wide leg construction. That, paired with a 12 inch inseam, makes them very easy to wear out and about.
Because of the slim fit, I thought these shorts would be restricting. However, surprisingly they don't restrict any range of motion. I put these shorts through the squat test, and I had no issues.
The twill drawstring is strong and thick.
These shorts have a soft 8.3 ounce cotton poly blend. After washing them twice, the shorts did not shrink at all, and they almost seem softer than when I first got them.
They cost around $24 dollars. Give or take a few bucks depending on what size you buy. Great price point for any sweat shorts.
What Needs Work
The first thing I noticed about these sweatshorts was that they do not have a very strong elastic waist band. If I do not tie the drawstring the shorts will fall off.
The pockets are not very deep. Your belongings may slip out when you are sitting down, especially on a low couch.
The hems around the legs are unfinished. Now, some of you are fans of that style, but this is my personal opinion, and I prefer finished hems. Also, the hems have become slightly frayed after washing.
A 12 inch inseam is pretty long. I am 6'3, and I bought a XXL. The shorts hit me right below the knee. If you are shorter, you may want to think of buying a size down.
They appear somewhat dressy. I like to wear sweatshorts all the time. So, if I can find a pair that has a slim fit, and full range of motion. I have to own them.
I would rate these sweat shorts as a safe purchase.
If you are looking to buy shorts for yourself or someone else; these shorts will exceed all their needs and last a long time
I definitely have been wearing these shorts often. Even in the dead of winter I see myself wearing them to outings with friends and lazy Sundays.
Get yourself a pair here.
