I know I said in a previous post that I wanted to get bright colored shorts, so when I saw these I was pretty excited. They're not as bright as other colors might be but I think this pink tie dye color is great. Also, they are my made by Hudson, my favorite brand of jeans. Although I love them I would never spend full price on shorts this expensive- jeans definitely, but not shorts. I believe these retail around $170, but at wonderful stores like Loehmann's they are only $60.
