    Did a search on 'work shorts' and 'clothing'...after 2 screens didn't find much...looking for a cargo type short that is a blend material...100% cotton just doesn't wear well in any weather and its not all that cool either...looked at Carhart...rather pricey and heavy...anyone found a supplier that makes a short you have stayed with?? All the dicount stores and sporting goods store sell basic junk...thanks for your help

    Carhartt has a new product out that is a contractors lightweight cargo short. Total weight is 7.5-oz, and 100% cotton. They are a great design, with plenty of room and many pockets. I have yet to find another line of work clothing that will out-wear a Carhartt product. As always, you get what you pay for...

    I buy all my work shorts at resale shops like goodwill or thift stores for $1 to $5. I buy all khaki shorts like polo, bugle boy, calvin klien, etc. They are almost brand new and at those prices I don't mind working them to death. Every year I buy 10 to 15 pairs of shorts for about 30 to 40 dollars.

    nice short that is cheap

    I wear the pant and the short below. Very, very comfortable. reasonably priced and as i said very very comforatable

    Not a lot of pockets but these are the coolest pants I have ever worn. When it is hot.....these are it.
