Great minds think alike.

You've got a late-night dinner date with the cutie you met at the bar last night and you don't want her to know you've been living in your van with two dogs and your surfboard for the last seven months. Pull on your Stoic Men's Workhorse Chino Short, tuck in your shirt, and she'll have no idea—at least that's what you thought before you realized she actually lives in the van parked right next to you.

too small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Seem nice enough for the price but just don't fit. Recommend a size or 2 bigger than normal.

pretty good

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: 32

These are pretty good shorts. The waist fits well, maybe a touch on the small side (I'm a 30-31 waist and and the 32 fits great). Lightweight, comfortable. Pockets could be cut just slightly different. Overall, I would get these again to wear out and beat up.

Thin and Poor Quality

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 34

These shorts have not held up well. They had excess threads on a lot of the seams and are piling excessively after only a handful of washes. The material is just not that nice. In addition to that, they run a full size small. My son is a 34 and the 34's fit like a 32. They'd be ideal for camping or roughing around the mountains in though. Just not for looking nice and sharp.

Not used to the fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 34

Might have got a size too small or it's just the design, but I wasn't a fan of the fit. Maybe I'm just not used to wearing shorts that don't stay below the knees. The charcoal heather color looks nice and sort of has a sheen to it like you'd find on dress slacks.

Love them.

Nice pair of shorts

Runs Small

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 36

Great shorts for the price! The waist sizes run a bit small, I'm a TTS 34, but this fit like a 32. I returned the 34 and got a 36 and it is perfect.

Breathable and comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 32

Pretty straightforward pair of shorts. Nothing really special about them but they are comfortable and breathable enough for those hot summer days. Lots of good color options and pretty affordable. Took off a star due to the fact that a back pocket buttons came off on the first wash on both pairs, and there were some loose threads throughout that needed to be cleaned up. Not a deal breaker especially at this price but thought it was worth noting. Ill continue to wear them all summer without issue. The fabric itself actually seems pretty durable without being thick or stiff.

I found them to be fairly true to size, also keep in mind that due to the fact that they are 80% polyester they dont really shrink when dried and will break in/stretch a bit over time. The Wine heather color is my favorite of the bunch!

Lightweight and Breathable

  • Size Bought: 36 usually 34

i purchased every color of this model of short. Love them almost worn daily, light weight and breathable for the summertime. Does fit small but I suggest going a size up.

Super comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 40

These shorts are dressy enough for the office and durable enough for the trail. Fits a little small.

Nice shorts, fit is a bit small

  • Fit: Runs small

Nice shorts, order a sized larger cause fit is certainly small
