I bought several pairs of these shorts for my husband, in charcoal, beige, and black, because he wears shorts most of the year, and these can go almost anywhere. I just wish the beige didn't have that green tint. Beige with a little more gray - taupe, actually - is a more neutral color and coordinates with more colors. And neither of us like the brown accents on the zippers, belt, and stitching. He wears a lot of taupe and black, charcoal, or white; seldom ever beige and brown. Honestly, he seldom wears the beige/green ones.
