    I have been purchasing the Harbor Bay elastic waist shorts for about 25 years from B & T and DXL. I am disappointed about how the material that they are made of changes every few years. Some years the material is smooth and non-clingy and other years they are made of rough and clingy material like this season. Similarly, sometimes the elastic waistbands hold up well to constant use and other years the elastic waistbands become stretched out very quickly. I brought this to the attention of the DXL manager and his reasoning was that most brands of clothing may have the original brand, Harbor Bay, etc., but is made by different overseas manufacturers and consistency of the product sometimes suffers. Just thought you'd want to know.

      Comments about Harbor Bay® Elastic-Waist Twill Shorts:

      These are easy care casual shorts. The elastic waist makes them good for guys like me who lose and gain a couple inches all the time. I had to replace some that were just too big with a smaller size, or I still would be wearing these shorts I bought two and three years ago.

          Comments about Harbor Bay® Elastic-Waist Twill Shorts:

          I wear these until they fade out or rip/tear (which is a good long time). I figure that if I find something that works, why change. When they get too worn to look good on the golf course or around town, I wear them when I volunteer at the animal shelter. The cats don't care if I look really dapper.
