These Carpenter-style shorts are just about perfect for summer fashion at an affordable price, and they are well-made too.

Since having a heart attack last fall my husband has been on a mission to stay in shape. He is probably losing weight as we speak. Actually it’s reached the point where he needs to stop losing weight since he now is down to what he weighed when we were married, 40 years ago! That also means that he’s impossible to buy pants for, since his waist is now 28.

So... it’s off to the boys section of the store.

I have to admit that over the past few years I’ve kept noticing clothes made by Faded Glory, and usually being impressed with the classic, casual American styling, and even the quality. My impression of these shorts is the same.

These are loose-fit carpenter-style shorts. They are baggy and hang below the knee for the current styles. They have a side utility pocket and hammer loop, yolk back and patch hip pockets, and regular jeans front pockets, button band, and zip fly. The denim is fairly heavy (maybe 12 ounce) in a slightly faded blue. The seams are solid and even. The stitching is not uneven and shoddy like in some bargain clothes.

They have an added feature that is very nice. There is an elastic strip inside the waistband which is accessible through a slot on the inside of the pants. This can be buttoned into one of three positions (on each side) for additional adjustment to the waist.

I’m not quite sure of the size range on these shorts, but they seem to be available in at least teen sizes.

He’s getting ready to go on a short trip with some friends, and he’s really happy with the way these shorts fit and look. All for only $8 on sale. Yippie!
