As difficult it is to find proper standard jeans, so is the hunt for equally nice jeans shorts. They all tend to be off in some way. Well now you can stop searching! These are like our Common Jeans but with shorter leg!

  • No-nonsense classic model
  • High waist
  • Zipper fly
  • Fabric
    • Weight 326 g/m2
    • Cotton 98,7% (Blue) and 98% (Black)
    • Elastane 1.3% (Blue) and 2% (Black)

In short, these are what jeans are supposed to be but in a short 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. A good pair of denim shorts doesn't need to cost hundreds of bucks.

These have what is nowadays called a 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.

Proper material

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.

Size info

Sizes in normal jeans sizes, but with no different lengths, the leg is 36 cm (15") from the crotch in every size. If you already know your jeans size, it's probably the same 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.

Erinomaiset shortsit. Istuu niin helevetin hyvin, että tulevaisuudessa tilaan farkkunikin täältä.

Istuu jalkaan kuin hansikas käteen. Tohtisiko vielä toivoa mustana värivaihtoehtona niin olis äärimmäisen passelit.

Erinomaiset fakkushortist, olleet käytössä kaksi kesää, enkä ole löytänyt mitään valittamista. Shortseissa ei näy kahden vuoden, melko aktiivisen käytön jälkeen, kulumisen merkkejä eikä värikään ole (ainakaan huomattavasti) haalistunut. Elastaaniakin on just sopivasti, ei kinaa missään vaiheessa mistään. Kaiken kaikkiaan siis loistotuote, ostais jo!

Aivan helekatin hyvät pöksyt. Ei ahista tai purista mistään. Kangas antaa jonkin verran myöten niin normin 34" sijasta 33" istuu oikein hyvin.
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!

Hyvä leikkaus ja materiaalit.

Suurin miinus, että vähän paksuhkot ja tukalahkot shortseiksi.

Mustat shortsit, laadukkaan oloista materiaalia, todella mukavan tuntuiset päällä, juuri oikean kokoiset 35", kun farkuissakin olen 34" ja 36" väliltä ja just sopivan pituiset, vähän polven yli. Olen todella tyytyväinen näihin, kesää odotellessa B)
