    Buy these right away.

    These are sophisticated walking shorts. They look clean, sharp, well appointed, and on-point. I have yet to wash my original pair. They just do not pick up odor. It is incredible. Fantastic for trips, and less laundry is a welcomed bonus.

    Great short

    These have become my new favorite shorts. So much so I bought them in black. One thing I would like to see in the next edition is a little deeper back and front pockets with a little stretch in them.

    Essential shorts

    Quality workmanship, great attention to detail. Good for when the weather starts to cool a bit. If you can handle the temperature on long distance flights in shorts these will be perfect.

    Great product!!

    Nice sturdy fabric. Good stretch. Versatile light gray color. I’ll be using this quite a lot, whether it’s WFH or afternoon walks! Definitely great option for summer travel.

    Amazing quality shorts!

    I bought these for my partner for his birthday, and he absolutely loves them! The material is very good quality, they fit great, and he says they’re super comfortable. We definitely will get more in the future!
