    These are the most comfortable shorts. Lovely soft cotton which washes well. I usually go for a medium but downsized to a small.

    I currently own three pair of Orvis Vintage Denim shorts. They are extremely comfortable and sized right. Since I reside in hot country, they help make the heat bearable.

    Repeat of greatest shorts ever - 5/28/2014

    Vintage Denim™ Shorts in Stone color. All I can say about these shorts is they last. Each pair, I'm on my 3rd pair which I hope will mean, I've enjoyed a pair for every 3 yrs for 9 yrs. total, are so comfortable. Their drawstring waist allows comfort even after the 4th of July picnic indulgence. I like the stone because I can be from totally informal to semi-formal for casual wear. In other words it is a more versatile color. The length just above the knees also lend itself to flexibility. And the material is a soft denim, I actually do wear these shorts so they get a lot of wear; and, also I love that the drawstring itself is sturdy, which means it hasn't ever broken.

    Just the right length! - 8/19/2013
    By: from Greenwich, CT

    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.

The Practical Fashion of Vintage Denim

Vintage Denim from OrvisFew 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.
