Särmä Common denim shorts, blue
As difficult it is finding proper standard jeans, so is hunting for equally nice jeans shorts. They all tend to be off in some way. Well now you can stop looking - these are cut like our Common Jeans, but with shorter leg!
- No nonsense classic model
- High waist
- Zipper fly
- Fabric weight 326 g/m2, 98,7 % cotton and 1,3 % elastane
In short, these are what jeans are supposed to be but in shorts form: durable, comfortable, clean. These fit even if you're not a slim-legged hipster who hangs his trousers halfway down, and there definitely is no stone washing or ready made holes!
Then there's the price too. These are good quality jeans shorts, made in Finland/Estonia. These don't need to cost hundreds of euros.
These have what is nowadays called high waist, which is not high at all if you're seen military surplus. The waist ends just below navel and the leg reaches down to the knee with most people (you can roll it too). Zipper fly and six belt loops - the loops are large enough for wide belts too.
If it's not "slim fit", it's made of some pre-washed or pre-torn crap. Not the case with these! These are a rarity, actually looking like a pair of new jeans shorts with the nice dark blue shade. The only treatment these have had is the removal of starch, and that's it. This means they're also pre-shrunk, so you don't have to worry about that either. The fabric is 98 % cotton, 2 % elastane (or 98.7/1.3 but this makes little difference), these are very comfortable and pretty hard wearing. Material weight 11,5 oz. The metal parts on these are nickel-free.
Sizes in normal jeans sizes, but with no different lengths, the leg is 36 cm from the crotch on every size. If you already know your jeans size, it's very probable the same is the best with these too.
The cut on these is just a tad roomy. The manufacturer states that there's probably two different sizes that fit you:
- Measure your hip circumference from the widest point and look at our size chart.
- A) Regular fit - pick a size with the same hip circumference as yours.
- B) Tight fit - pick a size with hip circumference a notch smaller than yours.
Our model normally wears size 36", but here he's sporting a pair of 34" jeans.
Below you can find a size chart with the actual centimetre measurements. These are pre-shrunk so they won't get any tighter.

Seuraavan kerran kun tilaan tavaraa, niin ostan toiset, että on koko kesäksi pöksyt. Sen verran siistit, että setämies kehtaa olla ihmistenkin kanssa tekemisissä nämä jalassa.
Vieläkö sais taktisiin farkkuihin pohjautuvan version!

Suurin miinus, että vähän paksuhkot ja tukalahkot shortseiksi.
