  • Description

    A short based on one of our most popular, practical pant styles - the Clyde. I am decidedly not a shorts person - I don't like showing skin, and short lengths on anything usually make me uncomfortable. But dressing comfortably for warm climates almost always requires some kind of alternative to pants, and I wanted to tackle the challenge.

    The sihouette I'm most drawn is that of 1930s and 1940s tap shorts, with a slim waist and wide, full thigh opening. To create the most flattering division of leg, 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. This also puts the hem of the shorts at the part of the thigh that has just begun to taper in circumference, which slims the leg visually. Those factors combined with the wide, full silhouette create 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).

    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.

    Sturdy, durable cotton canvas that has body and structure.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Cotton Canvas

    Fiber Content: 100% Cotton

    Description: This heavyweight cotton canvas is a real workhorse fabric. The weave is one of the most durable - resisting pilling, thinning, and tearing by nature of its very structure. It has sturdy body and weight, and will break in and patina beautifully with wear. It’s structured with a distinctly architectural feel - looks ultra sharp pressed to a crisp finish, but also excellent rumpled and worn. It holds its color, washes and wears consistently, is adaptable to all sorts of applications and climates, and has the nostalgia and security of a thoroughly American fabric.

    Care: Machine wash cold, tumble dry warm. Press on low with steam to remove wrinkles, or leave unpressed for a perfectly unfussy look.

  • Sizing & Fit

    Intended to have a comfortable, relaxed fit through the waist and hip and a roomy cut through the thigh. Wider at the thigh than our full-length Clyde Work Pant, but waist and hip will fit the same as the pant. Elastic waist allows for wiggle room between sizes - choose your size based on how slim/relaxed you'd like the hips and thigh to fit. Size down for a fitted look, size up for a roomier, relaxed fit. Modest but sporty mid-thigh length.
