Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow for Quality & Good Looks! Love,these shorts. Great looks, nice fit and wonderful cotton that resists wrinkles and thin enough to keep you cool. They wash great and come directly out of the dryer to wear and look good. Wow! Love,these shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wash and wear for the HE man These Columbia shorts seem to always hold up after washing for a long while. Whatever they are doing to get quality dyes, quality stitching seems to be working. Lasting product.
