Fancy a pair of short shorts? These 18th Amendment 'West' Denim Shorts in Herringbone are just the ticket. The thing to remember, however, when shopping ecommerce is that nothing is quite as short as it looks, unless, that is, you happen to be 5'11". If you're not, you can count on that 'mini' dress coming straight down to your knees, those floor sweeping wide leg trousers to bunch up at the floor, and those 'short shorts' to just be, well, short. While many jeans shorts walk a fine line between relaxed and straight up tacky, these shorts have the sort of details that put them in the former category. There's a smocked waistband at the back which helps with the sizing issue, that is, high waisted garments can be hard to size as you have to consider not only your hip measurements but your waist as well. The denim, a light (right on trend) herringbone wash also give them that tailored fabric feeling, so they don't look like the Levi's cut offs you've had for ten years. 18th Amendment is an Australian denim company. The line pivots on vintage silhouettes and so became especially coveted when styles like the high waisted, wide leg trousers came back into fashion.
