With many years of moto and mountain bike success under its belt, you might think Fox would be content to cruise on its performance apparel pedigree, but you'd be wrong. For the past few years, Fox has been churning out stylish, comfortable casual wear that rivals anybody in the business. While the Essex Walkshort's 60% cotton construction somewhat lessens its sport utility, it more than makes up for it with post-ride style and comfort.
The Essex starts with comfortable, easy-to-care-for cotton/poly blend. Fox then added four pockets for storage and a side cell pocket for easy access to your phone. The 22-inch outseam is more than enough to cover your knees, and belt loops at the waist let you cinch up for the perfect fit.
The Fox Essex Walkshort is available in sizes 28, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 36, 38, 40, and 42. It comes in 9 colors: Plaid White, Navy, Plaid Heather Graph, Plaid Light Grey, Plaid Black, Pinstripe Light Grey, Pinstripe White, Heather Graph, and Fatigue Green.

Fit true to size. The heather graphite color is a little lighter in person.
Hand pockets very shallow, and leg length a bit short. Overall a bit on the small side compared to others of the same size I have bought. I'm 6'1" and slim.
