These used to be great shorts at a reasonable price back just a few short years ago and many years before that! Hook & Tackle raised the prices and lowered the quality of these once fantastic shorts! It used to be that I could get 3 or 4 sailing seasons out of a pair of what used to be great shorts for under $25. Then they lowered the quality and raised the price and I was getting 1 or 2 sailing seasons out of them. Now they are produced in Bangladesh and lowered the quality again... I can only get 3 months before they start to wear thin or break at the seems and they raised the price to $35. I would be willing to pay $35 - $40 a pair if the would raise the quality instead of lowering it! They used to be my GoTo shorts.... but now I am Very Disappointed in Hook & Tackle Beer Can Shorts... time to find better shorts!

    Comments about Men's Original Beer Can Island Shorts:

    there should be two back pockets that velcro closed. the zipper on the single back pocket is not necessary. the secret pocket is a total waste and basically unusable unless you'r willing to get undressed to access it. an additional cell phone pocket would be a plus and the beer can pocket is a great innovation.

      Comments about Hook & Tackle Men's Original Beer Can Island Shorts, Khaki, 42:

      It's my own fault for not paying attention, but what I really wanted was a 3" inseam, not 5". I thought I could shorten them, but H & T has lowered the beer can pocket, making hemming just about impossible. Nevertheless, they're OK if you're not short like me and can tolerate a 5" inseam.

              Comments about Hook & Tackle Men's Original Beer Can Island Shorts, Chambray, 42:

              I've gotten used to wearing shorts over the years and I've never found better. These take a lot of abuse at work, play and everyday use without damage. They last for 3-4 years of constant wear before dying. I only wish that other brands made clothes like these. Luckily West has offered these since before 2000 and the price has always been reasonable.

                Have been wearing this type of shorts for 5 years and just love them. The side pocket is great for a handheld gps or a beer can.... The length is great as I do not like the shorts that dangle around the knee.
