Hard finding conservative men’s shorts with secure pocket for CC, key and money.

#1
I decided to buy a couple of new tennis shorts and am surprised by the price and the flashy designs of the new men’s shorts. It seems almost all of them have some sort of white or silver piping running down the side of the leg along with mesh in the upper backside and on the inner legs. No additional pockets now with the exception of the two side pockets. I looking for a back pocket that is zippered or an additional side pocket that has zipper on it. I like my shorts to be all one solid color with no 5”+ manufacturers logo on it, just the standard 2”. There is now a 3” cut out at the bottom side of the short to make the shorts look funky and provide more ventilation.

I like to go shopping or to lunch after tennis and with these shorts, I would literately have carry a fanny pack around if I purchased these new men’s tennis shorts below $100.

The one short that I found have does have a back zipped pocket is a Italian brand I never heard of and sells for $250 U.S. It is all one color, no piping, no bottom cut out and is 100% polyester. Perfect in every way except the price!

I may go to Walmart now! LOL!

I am sure there is a twist to this thread, but I will bite.

What is the brand that you found for $250 for a pair of shorts, why don't you want more ventilation on your shorts?

As an addition, what are your shorts that featured ALL the requirements you here describe: brand, model?

:cool:

Nike once made an “Anytime” short, later called the N.E.T. short I believe. It has a zippered (and later, Velcro) back pocket which was perfect. They were always available in black/navy/white option and maybe a seasonal color or two. I miss those.

I decided to buy the Italian made shorts since the manufacturer said I could return them if I not 100% satisfied! They emailed me back so I purchased a pair! I will not disclose the brand until I decide keep them.

Look into Running shorts. NIKE has all kinds of running shorts of various lengths that have zipper pockets for phones and CC while you "run"

I also find that running material is just as good if not better than the tennis short material. All brands have these pocket features in their running shorts.

I got some conservative Prince shorts with deep side pockets and a zippered back pocket for a wallet when going somewhere else after tennis. Prince has been around for decades and always had quality clothing.

Can you veto the credit card if they refuse to play ball?
