The Dorian shorts have a few details that make them stand apart. The waistband has elastic on the sides to cinch at your waist. It's finished with a button and our easy-to-sew zipper method. The shorts have a relaxed fit with inset pockets that create a unique silhouette, perfect for tucking in your favorite tee or blouse.

Choose medium-weight wovens like twill, denim, or linen, and feel free to pick a fun contrasting fabric for the pocket lining.
