Just the right length! -

Love these shorts...nice color...comfortable, and elastic waist, so they don't ever feel tight. I could do without the drawstring, but just keep it tucked in. They wash really well, and should last a long time.

Roomy, comfortable and soft but durable cotton. I expect to enjoy these for years to come.
By: CURVY from Houston, TX
Very comfortable, fit well, quality material, will last. Only thing is that stores near Houston, TX do not carry, always have to order - would prefer to be able to try on in stores near me.

Comfortable, well made, great price and the fit is perfect. What's more is they do not ride up. Who could want more in a pair of shorts.
The Practical Fashion of Vintage Denim
Few fabrics can boast the tradition and the colorful history that denim claims. From gold miner’s staple to the darling of high fashion, this down-to-earth indigo twill has worked its way into our hearts and into our closets. Our signature version, Orvis Vintage Denim is a traditional mid-weight denim made of pure cotton.
The Rugged Outdoor Fabric of Choice for Centuries
No other fabric is as quintessentially American as denim is. Used for the sails on Christopher Columbus’s ships, it first arrived on our shores in 1492, but the rugged textile had already been known in Europe for centuries. From the original serge de Nîmes, denim had been manufactured in France since 300 A.D. ad the outdoor fabric of choice for workers and farmers throughout Northern Europe.
Orvis Vintage Denim: The Toughness of Original Denim, but Prewashed for Softness
This sturdy cotton fabric derives its toughness from the weave — twill is the strongest of all of the fabric weaves, with threads woven in a tight diagonal pattern for increased strength. This diagonal pattern, or twill line, makes the fabric very durable and prevents it from tearing or ripping easily. The steeper the twill line, the higher quality the fabric; this is because the steeper weaves have more yarns per inch. Woven in this strong pattern, our 8 oz. Vintage Denim is prewashed for softness and will only get better with age.
Great for Travel
Orvis Vintage Denim is ideal for travel. Our sturdy, easy-care skirts, pants, and dresses are as stylish as they are comfortable, resist wrinkles, and the mid-weight fabric is suitable for year-round wear. Because our Vintage Denim is so versatile, practical, and popular, we offer a wide variety of styles for women in traditional denim blue, plus a range of wardrobe-expanding colors.
