IMAGE>ADJUSTMENTS>REPLACE COLOR>

Use the eyedropper tool to choose the color on the shorts and then use hue
saturation
lightness
to change variety of colors.

You need to darken the luminocity. See if the pants are dark in one of the original channels (eg. blue). If so, copy the channel and paste into a new layer and set the layer to luminocity. If it's too dark, step back the opacity until it's got the information you need.

If the blue sucks (which it often does, stupid blue) you'll want to use a curves adjustment layer and do the same thing (set to luminocity and pull the mids waaaay down).
