  • Description

    A short based on one of our most popular, practical pant styles - the Clyde. 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. A generous inseam makes them practical and wearable (everybody knows that a one or two-inch inseam on shorts is a recipe for discomfort).

    These are incredibly versatile with our classic Clyde pockets and durable topstitching. Distinctly utilitarian in feel, I picture these being right at home on an archaeological dig but also very wearable for a weekend brunch and trip to the park.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Midweight Linen

    Fiber Content: 100% Linen

    Description: Medium weight, sturdy broadcloth linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. Linen possesses natural strength and durability, and it's a super friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing and is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry warm. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look (as pictured here), or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles.

    *Linen 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!

Just what I was looking for!

I purchased the 4 and they fit well but I think I could have even sized up to a 6 for a looser, more comfy fit. I’m 5’5”, 120 lbs. The linen is such high quality!

Not a shorts person

The shape and rise of these shorts is so flattering, I will definitely be ordering a second pair in another colour one day. They are so comfortable and give exactly the right coverage for me, showing plenty of leg ( gotta get that Vitamin D! ) but I never feel too exposed. And they pair with everything. I was wearing them during the day when my partners mother was visiting, we were preparing a big family dinner. When I changed into a long skirt she said “what happened to your shorts, they looked great you should wear them to the party!”

Comfy shorts for hot days

I love throwing on these shorts for doing things around the house. I do wish they were longer though, like a walking short.
