I've never seen this Carhartt short before

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anonymous from Missouri on Saturday, February 20, 2016
I bought this short as a third choice. After I had to return two other pairs of summer weight Carhartt shorts due to sizing errors. I have worn Carhartt shorts for the last 20 years and had never seen this model before. They have some nice touches. The gusset in crotch is a nice touch and the piping at the pocket tops should keep the edge from fraying as soon as normal. But the rise is pretty low for a relaxed fit work short with a gusseted crotch. The are pretty prone to sliding down unless you have a VERY toned physique, the old 'bad moon rising'. Another thing that struck me is that they're made in China. I've purchased 5 pair of Carhartt pants and 5 pairs of shorts this year and these are the only 'made in China' pair. I don't know if all of this model are Chinese made. After first impressions I probably would have preferred the classic 7.5 or 8.5 oz canvass shorts, but these might grow on me over time.
