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.
I bought the gray and brick red shorts for my husband. I washed them before he wore them. In many clothing items, 2% spandex is enough to have the item look wearable after washing. These badly need ironing. The wrinkles were just as bad after I put the dry shorts back in with a wet load and let them tumble for several minutes. Normally, that process will ease the wrinkles, but not in this case. The wrinkles are really set, and ironing is the only way to make these look wearable. I would never have bought them had I known.
Another reviewer said the brick red bleeds color. Since I grew up in a household that ran a dry cleaners and laundry, I knew that red is the most "Fugitive" color--meaning bright red cotton clothing will usually bleed very badly. However, not so with off-red colors. They are usually considerably more stable than bright red. Also, I know the best way to prevent red from bleeding is to wash it first in cold water. The cold should set the color. Boy, not in this case. None of the rules apply. This off-red color bled over everything in my cold water wash. It bled so badly that I suspect it will keep bleeding in subsequent washes. DON'T buy the Brick Red. DON'T buy these shorts unless you want to iron them every time.
