Initially pleased; ultimately disappointed

Reviewed by JC VA Beach from Virginia on Tuesday, June 18, 2013
Remember the old saying about first impressions? When I first opened my package from STP and looked at these shorts, I was pleased with what I had. It didn't take me long, however, to discover a poorly stitched seam in the pocket leaving a three inch hole and a very frayed fabric edge. I considered exchanging the shorts but the $6 return shipping plus the $3 replacement shipping would have been an effective 20-25% surcharge. So I'll repair them myself. Now back to the first impressions... This being my first purchase, I have to ask, "Was the flaw in the product an isolated incident or are the prices at STP so low because their product is more prone to flaws?" Granted, the flaw in these shorts did not directly impact their functionality. But, then, what's to say that the next flaw won't. Indeed, I will probably think twice before purchasing from STP again.
