Fabric Options: Read more about the fabric options here.

  • Charcoal Neon Speckled Cotton - Surprising hints of neon yellow and pink dot this silky soft chambray. With a relaxed drape, this fabric is the perfect twist on a classic fabric and will become a fantastic pair of shorts. The charcoal gray color gives you a lighter take on a basic black short, and the lightweight fabric will keep you cool and comfy as the days get longer and the temperature hotter. A wonderful choice!
  • Summer Madras Patchwork Cotton - If you've ever been to the Northeast in summer, you've seen this fabric. In fact, if you've ever looked at a J. Crew catalog, you've seen it. It's a classic Nantucket madras patchwork, and the fabric actually is constructed from pre-sewn squares of colorful tartan, like a quilt without its backing. Embrace the plaid life with this bright and colorful print!
  • Mist Brussels Washer Viscose Linen - Brussels Washer combines the textural feel of linen with the drape and softness of rayon to create a lovely and versatile fabric. This mist green color has a lovely serene quality to it, not too bright, like a green that has been faded by the sun. A perfect color for both the beach and the backyard, this fabric will become a lovely pair of shorts to wear all summer long!
