  • Description

    A short based on one of our favorite, oldest pant styles - the Florence. I am decidedly not a shorts person - but dressing comfortably for warm climates almost always requires some kind of alternative to pants, and I wanted to tackle the challenge.

    The silhouette I'm most drawn to is that of the 1930s and 1940s tap shorts with a narrow waist and wide, full thigh opening. I aimed to follow the rule of thirds, with the distance from natural waist to hem of the shorts taking up about one-third of total leg length. The hem hits right around mid-thigh, which feels comfortable in terms of coverage but still keeps most of your legs out in the open air. In super soft and drapey silk crepe, these feel like absolutely delicious pajama shorts that you can also totally wear in public.

    The wide, full silhouette creates a beautiful shape that still feels modest and elegant. A generous inseam makes them practical and wearable (everybody knows that a one or two-inch inseam on shorts is a recipe for discomfort). They are nostalgic and quite modern at the same time.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Silk Crepe

    Fiber Content: 100% Silk

    Description: A washed silk crepe de chine that drapes and moves like liquid. It has a muted, ultra-soft feel with a barely-there sheen visible only with movement. This is extremely high quality and medium-weight crepe that was custom developed just for us - meant to be worn, not coddled. All of our silk is garment-washed, so it has a lustrous yet matte finish and is totally machine washable.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cool water. Tumble dry on medium heat. Hems, necklines, and sleeves will wrinkle. Press with steam to shape, and they'll return to crisp edges.

    *Silk is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, hand wash and do not tumble dry.

    *Garment measurements were taken flat, so double where necessary. All measurements are approximate, +/- a tolerance that is to be expected with handmade clothing.

    Select your size with your hip measurement in mind as you want to make sure you'll be able to pull them up. On some bodies, you'll need to shimmy a bit to get them over your hips, but once they are on, they should feel great!
