Shorts weather is rapidly approaching if you're in the East, and already here if you're in California. And while your legs will take time to acquire color, there's no reason why your shorts shouldn't be perfect from the get-go.
Which is where Taylor Stitch's cool new Après Shorts in Indigo Slub come in. The brand's easygoing Après style is already an athleisure standout, with four pockets, an elastic waist, antique brass-tipped drawcord, and dark horn buttons.
The key upgrade here is 9-oz., 100% organic cotton slub fabric, which has a distinctive texture to it and breathes well, so it doesn’t cling to the skin when it gets hot. Dyed indigo, it's also damned handsome.
And as they point out pure organic cotton "uses a fraction of the water and energy resources of the conventionally-grown stuff, and doesn’t pollute waterways and ecosystems," so you can feel as good as you look.
