Champion Authentic Cotton 9-Inch Men's Shorts with Pockets is rated 3.6286 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great shorts with tiny little pockets I have been buying your cotton jersey shorts for many years. I have always loved them. They have always been an all around excellent product. that is until last year when you decided to put little tiny pockets on them. now every time I sit down my wallet, phone, keys, ect. fall out whereas all the years prior to last year this was never an issue. (nice deep pockets). I was hoping that this year you would realize this flaw and resort back to making them like you have always done in the past. Would be willing to pay the extra money it would take to correct this problem. It's a shame that you decided to change the pockets and ruin what I felt was a other wise an excellent product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waist band comes unstitched Purchased on April 23, 2014: I have worn various Champion USA brand shorts over the years and had been very happy with them, so when I needed to purchase replacements it seemed to be a no brainer. Unfortunately, right from the first time I wore these the stitching for the waist band started to come apart. With each washing/wearing it has become worse. Not sure how much longer the waist band will remain attached, making the shorts useless. It appears to me that the stitching used to attach the waist band is not elastic, so they break.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comfortable, quality knit, poor Design Flaw I bought 3 of these shorts. The loop style waistband is tacked down in the back. It isn't strung completely around like old style drawstrings. The tacking creates a weak point and sooner (1 month) or later (8 months) the string breaks at the tacking point and you now have an unadjustable waist band. Since this happened 2 of 3 pairs (I don't wear the 3rd pair too often), I say it is a poor design flaw.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One fatal flaw... Cotton jersey shorts are really super for lounging around the house, working out, wearing as summer pajamas, etc. Unfortunately, everyone seems to like a different fit, inseam length, and fabric weight. Therefore, it's helpful when the on-line descriptions are accurate and complete. These Champion shorts are made of a medium-weight knit cotton fabric, have an easy loose fit, and are true to size. The 9" inseam is entirely accurate. It's all good if these details are to your liking. These shorts also have a one piece drawstring which needs looping in order to secure it. Some folks aren't too fond of this design. You can always cut the string and knot the ends if you'd rather tie it in a bow. I think there is ample cord for this and it's of a substantial weight. The deal breaker for me, however, was the exposed elastic waist band inside the shorts. It's uncomfortable and can chafe unless you tuck in your shirt or are wearing underwear that sits high. My old Champion shorts have fabric inside and out which allowed them to use a heavier grade of elastic in the waistband. I'm sure it lasted as long as it did because of the heavier weight. I assumed these shorts would be similar design. Instead, they've chosen a fabric-covered elastic similar to that used in jockey-style briefs. It doesn't appear very durable. I feel Champion is a bit deceptive with this item since they've only shown pictures of someone wearing the shorts with a loose fitting shirt that's tucked in. You can't see the waist band detail at all. They also don't mention this manufacturing choice in the description as most manufacturers do. As with pockets, flies, and fabric content it matters to a lot of customers whether or not a garment has a covered or exposed waistband. At least if we're informed we can try to make better purchasing decisions up front and avoid the hassle of returning items. Returns are inconvenient for both the vendor and the consumer and don't make for very good PR. In the end, however, I've chosen to return these since I ordered a dozen pairs. A bit too confident, I guess!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Husband Loves Them!!! My husband loves these shorts! He had a couple of pair in the past, but these have pockets which he was thrilled to find. He doesn't like the flimsy shorts that are mostly found in the athletic stores. He likes his a little bit heavier. He puts them on as soon as he gets home!!! So they must really be comfortable!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Waistband is scratchy Love everything about these shorts except for the waistband. The elastic is exposed and the tag is made out of the scratchiest material possible and is sewn onto the band making it difficult to remove. The pockets in the shorts are nice and deep. The fabric is a little thinner than I was expecting but fairly soft and comfortable. I bought a similar pair of C9 shorts a few years ago that had a soft, knit waistband with a drawstring and I was hoping these would have the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Champion Cotton Shorts I have been buying champion clothing for years.. These shorts are not the same as they used to be. Have always bought XL for my husband.. These shorts seem to be a XXL instead of an XL.. Washed and dried thinking would shrink some but they did not. Not sure why they changed them after such success in previous years.
