Canterbury Rugby Shorts, Great Casual Wear.
on 22 July 2014
I don't play rugby so I can comment on the performance of these shorts on the field.
I bought these Canterbury shorts to replace a pair of worn out cotton drill Optimum shorts that were years old. I wanted the same type so ordered another pair of Optimum but was disappointed to find that they were not the same style or material as my original pair, so I returned them. I wanted heavy duty cotton drill again and these Canterbury shorts are the deal. They are not particularly stylish and the fit is generous but I wear these for pottering about in not for looks. They are great to wear right out of the bag if not a bit stiff. Once they've been washed a few times though they will soften up and be perfectly comfortable. The two side pockets are really deep too. No chance of keys or mobile phone falling out unless you stand on your head. The combination of elasticated waist with pull cord makes adjustment a cinch ;)
