The coral shorts are made from a super soft corduroy from Brisbane Moss, so the fabric was made in Italy (via Northern England). The blue shorts are made from a luxe needle cord from Velcorex in Alsace. The shorts are roomy through the top, with quite a wide leg opening. Because they have a drawcord waist they can be worn either up above your knees or slightly below, and what-ever shape your body is. The cut and sew was done in the UK.
