Pure Cotton Authentic Cargo Shorts is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 100.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Having purchased 3 pairs of these shorts in July 2018 for a summer holiday I was quite impressed with their fit and initial rugged feel. However, after a few times of wearing the seems began to separate on 2 pairs, the green pair ripped when twisting to get out of a vehicle which had fabric seats. I was only wearing these casually during the warmer months, now all 3 pairs are in one way or another broken. I have one pair that I keep for DIY etc, not the intended reason for purchase. Normally marks and Spencer’s are so good for all men’s clothing, this time they really have not impressed. £90.00 for 3 pairs of shorts that after less than a year have all ripped due to poor quality is inexcusable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from His new fave shorts! My dad has been looking for cargo shorts for years to replace his much loved ones as they have well and truly been worn to death! Through trying many on in a variety of other retailers including M&S in previous years he's always found fault with them whether it be fit, size or length. He's also quite conscious of style I saw these and had to get them. He tried them on and was so happy with them he's got rid of the old ones. He was ecstatic with the fit saying they were very true to size comfortable to move in and the length he's been after, they don't feel too long and not too short where they feel like short shorts. He's since purchased 4 other colours! Brilliant buy and he is a very happy chappy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Priscilla I purchased the shorts for my partner, to replace a pair brought last year. Oh dear, firstly the photo can not show how thin the material is and goodness me do these shorts come up short !!! They are cut mid thigh !!! A really mean amount of material which left my partner looking like a school boy on his way to a P.E lesson. Such a shame because the previous cargo shorts were fab... good heavy material which sat just above the knee. Please redesign M&S to the earlier shorts and be careful with both the quality of fabric and length. I can not recommend....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed When I collected my parcel and opened it, the shorts were not in a plastic covering and they looked as they had been worn (they looked like dish rag!) They were extremely creased and there didn't seem sufficient material on the flaps of the pockets in order to lay flat. I didn't know whether this was the style or what. I purchased these for my husband for a smart pair of shorts for holiday. I expected good quality for £29.50!!!! Needless to say, these were returned for a refund

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Husbands new cargo shorts The last cargo shorts are years old and now need replacing. These shorts are a little shorter than old ones but same problem ,difficult to iron and trim pockets etc and detail on shorts doesn't flatten properly when ironed. Husband loves these shorts and the style.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from CARGO SHORTS Bought these for my husband, unfortunately they were much to baggy and the fabric was rather thick so didn't hang well

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cargo shorts Didn’t like the crumpled effect on the pockets. The flaps looked very badly made.
