I'm have been wearing the shorts with tabs for 30 plus years all of a sudden the wires in the tabs break at the first wear and why did you stop making them with a ruler pocket I'm a carpenter and I need to carry my ruler. I'm a big fella and always have been the tabs have never been a problem in the past. Bit of a shame they used to be such a good product.
