These are handmade shorts made from vintage and surplus denim. Vintage denim may vary, including the shade of the jeans. All of the photos are ours and are examples of what we have sent out in the past. While these items are in great condition, each mark or hole is considered part of the vintage charm and is not a defect.
501s Button Fly- We separate out Levis that are style marked 501s. These have a button fly and are also classic style.
Just like purchasing any clothing, measuring is not required but recommended. We suggest finding your size by measuring at the natural waist for the most accurate size choice (the smallest part of your waist and above the belly button) Please coordinate your natural waist measurement with the size chart below to select the size that will fit you best.
To measure your waist, the easiest tool is a fabric tape measure. If you don't own one, you can use a string or ribbon, placing that around your natural waist, and then measure laid flat with a ruler.
If you choose to provide us with additional measurements, write them in the "Please leave special instructions below" on the cart page. Hips are measured around the largest part of your rear.
MADE TO ORDER:
Also, let us know in the notes section for color wash options. Faded Black, Dark Black etc). These items are made unique to you as no vintage denim is identical as we shown in the photos.

AFTER YOU RECEIVE YOUR SHORTS:
When you receive your shorts, the rise can reach above, right on or right below your belly button. All of these are considered "high waisted".
Vintage label size is not always accurate! Vintage sizing is unfortunately not the same as modern sizing. I measure the shorts to modern sizing to find your size.
Your actual shorts may not measure the same as your natural waist. For example, your natural waist measures 25” so you correctly order an XS. (according to size chart) Your shorts could actually measure 27” because they sit a little lower on a wider part of your body. (most shorts sit right below your belly button, which is wider than your natural waist) This is why you must measure at your natural waist.
Most of these items come from denim jeans cut off into shorts.
