District Young Men's Fleece Sweat Shorts Review

50% of small fashion companies use District Young Sweat Shorts.

Why? Well there are two reasons:

1. They are readily available to companies in wholesale quantities from an established behemoth - getting wholesale sweat shorts is harder than you think.

2. They are a excellent quality sweatshorts that stands up to the demands of the modern wearer.

When I was looking to sell my own sweat shorts I came across these shorts. They come from the behemoth SanMar who supplies more clothing to the United States than anyone else.


  • 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

The Good

  • 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.

  • With sizes XS-XXXXL, and the option for either black or grey, you can find a pair to meet anyone's needs.

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.

Other Thoughts

  • 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.
