If you've been on the look-out for a pair of polished and versatile shorts, shoppers say that the Men's Classic Fit Perfect Short by Dockers are a "perfect" pair for summer — and they're affordable, too.
SHOP IT: Amazon, from $27
What are they?
These Dockers shorts are a summer take on the casual-cool polish of a chino pant, with a shorter inseam for a more contemporary design. These shorts are made from a durable stretch twill fabric in 14 different colours and plaid patterns, with zip fly and larger pocket so you can store your smart phone.
What people are saying
Dockers shorts are popular with Amazon shoppers: The Men's Classic Fit Perfect Short has earned a 4.5-star rating from more than 24,000 reviews from shoppers all over the world who have dubbed them a go-to casual short for summer.
"The shorts fit perfectly, look smart and appear to be very durable," one shopper wrote. "I was so pleased with them I ordered another pair, which were received with equal satisfaction. I can highly recommend the product."
Some shoppers have noted that since these shorts have a somewhat slim cut, it might be best to order a size larger to ensure a proper fit.
"These are very nice, and fit about how I expected. Not to loose, not too tight," another shopper wrote. "Results may vary for some, but in general the fit should cover all but either very muscular legs (cyclists, some swimmers/body builders) or overly plump physiques where there's more above the waistline should get the next size up. They feel very comfortable and useful for a wide range of uses, including casual and more dressy situations."
Another thing to remember before you order is that some of the colours may vary compared to the product photo online. Some shoppers have said that the navy blue looks more like a medium blue, but still a great colour to pair with T-shirts, polos and button downs.
If you're looking for a pair of summer shorts that don't break the bank, these Dockers shorts might be up your alley. However, since some customers have noted issues with fit and colour, if you're picky about those elements, you might want to give these a pass.
