The Basic Shorts Leaf


The most comfortable shorts you’ll ever wear (and never want to take off). Our green Basic Shorts are slightly longer (mid-thigh length) than your usual summer shorts and have two big pockets in the front. The fabric feels soft and cooling on the skin. Adjust the fit using the drawstring waistband.
