The Dad shorts are made of medium weight chino cotton, a year-round daywear fabric fit for any essential of a cool dad’s wardrobe. These casual shorts are a revised version of « all-American gold shorts », with their box-pleated front, buttoned waistband and secret ticket pocket. They are finished with a contrasting zig-zag stitch inspired by the finishings offered by 1950s domestic sewing machines.
