To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These shorts wrinkle badly regardless of what you do watching/drying. I had hoped they would fit and wash similar to the Amazon Essentials Twill pants which are a heavier cotton (99% cotton, 1% Elastine). These are a lighter fabric that wrinkles badly to the point where you have to iron them. I DON’T IRON SHORTS! Amazon needs to go back to the better twill fabric and sell a line of shorts. I would buy all colors if they improve the fabric.
This was the second Goodthreads short that I purchased. Didn't like the first 5" Slim short that I bought, thought I would try these. I had to return them. They were unacceptably tight in the thighs and butt! Don't know who these WOULD fit, I mean I am 6' 165 lbs, and have been a solid 32-33 for years and these were so tight I was afraid to bend down and lace my shoes! Sorry Amazon...these need some work.
The style, fit, and colors are nice, but the quality of the fabric and construction is mediocre. You can get much higher quality shorts for the same price if you catch a sale at the Gap. This is my third and last Goodthreads purchase. If Amazon wants to get its fashion brands right they need to improve the quality.
don't waste your time with these -- buy some dickies instead. the material is definitely stretchy, lightweight, and comfortable, but those qualities basically translate to a pair of shorts that will lose their shape and wrinkle horribly in the wash. they look decent out of the package, aside from being awfully baggy. but after a single wash/dry cycle? forget it. these are trash and they look like it.
Would have been a great product First pair I bought were great so I bought several others in different colors. After 1st wash and dry, became so wrinkled I could not wear them. Sorry amazon dropped the ball with this one. Do not buy unless you like tobiron EVERY TIME YOU WASH THEM.
I do not know how they get so many stars! They wrinkle like a dry piece rice paper, the wrinkles can't be ironed out All what they have going is the first day of use. Save yourself the $ and the environment not worth the plastic bag they come in
Very disappointed with the fit and finish of these shorts. i thought Goodreads would be better quality than Amazon Essential because they are more expensive. NOT SO. will no purchase again. I washed them so can't return them . Amazon get you quality control in check
These are absolutely the worst quality clothing item I’ve ever bought. They fit strangely in the butt (I have no butt so that’s never been an issue), they feel and look cheap, and they come out of the dryer so wrinkled that they’re unwearable. Ironing them is very difficult, as even with a nice $300 Rowena iron and some know-how, many of the wrinkles never come out. I threw all three pairs away after two wears, washes and ironings. Not worth even the super low price.
I bought several pairs and was initially pleased. Unfortunately it took a few loads to determine that these were the offending item ruining clothes in the wash. The red color shorts ran the worst, but the grey shorts ruined at least one other item as well. All told we will need to replace several items of clothing because of the dye running in these shorts.
You get what you pay for. I already returned first pair because of this weird crease it gets in the hem that does not iron out. Got the replacement pair and another pair, and guess what. Same unfit crease at hem. I’ll be returning these also.
