Pull pockets work real well, rugged material roomy fit and all around good to work in, also you look professional wearing these Blaklader shorts and not like a bum with the loose jersey shorts on. What else can I say about these shorts? They get better with each wash the material gets softer with each wash. They also do not shrink in the wash. The leather tape measure patch is great so you wont wear out your top pocket. I do wish they would add a pencil pocket just in case you wear these with a T-shirt. Other than that no complaints.
