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 a long hike but also very wearable for weekend errands.
