So far, these are probably my favorite shorts to come out of the SS11 season. Slim without being too tight. Short without being embarrassing. Detailed without being ostentatious. And built like an effin’ tank. The Ripstop Fatigue Shorts from Engineered Garments are meticulously handcrafted in New York City from 5.5 oz. 100% cotton ripstop. Fashioned after Vietnam-era fatigues (hence the name), the shorts come equipped with two deep front slash pockets, which are a nicely subtle alternative to the more traditional cargo style. Other features include flapped back pockets, an interior drawstring, cinch tabs on the waistband and a zip fly.
