Description

The Marblehead Madras Whaler Shorts are a great selection to add to any man's spring and summer wardrobe. These summer preppy style shorts are named after Marblehead, Massachusetts, just up the coast from Boston. We wanted to pay tribute to one of towns that make the East Coast such a great place to be in the summer. These shorts are made with 100% cotton patchwork madras. No poly/cotton blends here. We believe only pure cotton fabric gives the breathability and comfort that you need to stay cool and relaxed during the summer months. Our madras is true patchwork. Each piece of plaid fabric is sewn together by hand to create a unique and interesting pattern. Our shorts have a 9" inseam, so the shorts fall to just above the knees. We've made sure to construct them precisely to avoid any unwelcomed bagginess. Our Whaler Shorts all have a nylon zipper because we have found that nylon is more hardwearing than metal zippers that can break easily. Two slanted front pockets are positioned to allow your hands to comfortably sit, if you choose, without causing your belongings to come tumbling out every time you sit. There are also two back pockets that can secure with a button. The Marblehead Madras Whaler Shorts are made in the USA. We believe there is something to be said about wearing American-made clothing.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really like the way these shorts look and the fabric is ..., August 19, 2016
I was lucky enough to be able to purchase these shorts with a discount code in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion. I really like the way these shorts look and the fabric is of high quality. The stitching is consistent and strong although the stitching around the button could have been a little better (maybe a thicker thread in the future?) it does not look like it will fall off or anything like that, but it is loosely stitched on. The length is just right and the fit is true to size. These did not shrink much in the wash, if at all. I love the look and feel of these shorts. I wish the company had even more choices, such as these in a shorter cut as I am very interested in ordering more from this company. Great shorts!

4.0 out of 5 stars They keep me fresh and looking great during the summer!, September 9, 2016
This review is from: Nantucket Brand Men's Stripe Seersucker Whaler Shorts (Apparel)
Man do these shorts look great! I was looking for shorts that I could wear for the summer that look somewhat bright and fun. I got the Light Bluefish colored shorts and they look awesome! They don't look baggy or flopping around every where. They stay close to your legs and can be worn with dress up attire.

What I like:
-The color is amazing. It doesn't look faded or washed away. It's solid light blue sky!
-It is very comfortable around the waist area, crotch area and thighs
-The fabric feels tough but looks very smooth
-Looks amazing with so many outfits, you can't go a summer without wearing these bad boys
-The zipper rides up and down so smoothly I miss it when wearing other shorts or jeans

What I didn't like:
-Some of the stitching, as you can see in the picture, is sticking out making me sort of worried about the long term wear on these shorts. At this price range I'd expect there to be little to no flaws with stitching... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Husband loves them!, August 29, 2016
My husband loves these shorts and I think they look great on him. The seersucker fabric is great and the seams and button are sewn well. He says they are very comfortable and he likes the feel of the fabric. He had another pair of similar shorts that he had worn to death and I wanted to throw them out so I got these for him. These are much better quality than his other shorts and I think he will get a lot of wear out of them.

I received this product at a discount to provide my honest review. I always write honest reviews because I rely on the reviews myself before making purchases. Please feel free to ask me any questions and let me know if this review helped by clicking Yes or Helpful below. Thanks!
