Not available

Our easy-going Cargo Shorts are a best-selling, much-loved style. While they're a bit of a wardrobe workhorse – with roomy pockets and hard-wearing fabric – the excellent choice of checks and colours mean they've also got style in spades.

          I'm so glad these tan shorts are back in stock in my son's size. The size 28 fit just right. He is tall and slim, about a 14 in US sizes. The weight is sturdy but not overly heavy like some of the boys' shorts offered at "trendy" mall stores. Who wants to wear heavy shorts when it's hot?! Neutral color matches most everything. Buy these before they are gone.

          I LOVE these shorts for my son. I initially ordered a size 24; they were too small. So I exchanged for a 26 and they are enormous with no way of adjusting them.
          The design is great, the colors are perfect but the fit is considerably off and I will have to return them for a refund, unfortunately.

              Handsome shorts! I love the print and fabric and they fit my slender son great everywhere but in the waist. They wouldn't even stay up. Why no adjustable waist? This is my first time buying Johnnie B shorts and they would have been *perfect* with an adjustable waist.

                Purchased size 28 for my tall skinny 13 yr old. Wasn't sure what size to get for Johnnie B, especially since the waist is not adjustable. They fit! These look great and wash very nice. Wish the tan color was not sold out!

                        These shorts are very well made and look like they will hold up to lots of wear and washing. My son is on the slim side, and these fit just right. He is 11yrs old and we got a size 24.

                          these are a very nice weight and fabric. My son is on the slim side so they really fit nice. I love when I can find something functional and comfortable for my kids but still be fashionable and look great to please me.
