    Alright, hear me out: shorts fit weird, are hard to style, and generally are far inferior to jeans at all times. Right?

    Whether I'm running to Walgreens or going out out, I find myself reaching for these guys to match with just about everything.

    They hit my thigh at the perfect place.

    Not so short that they show cheek and not so long that I feel like a grandma!

    The denim is both stretchy and sturdy and feels great.

    So far, they’ve survived several washes and don’t shrink.

    I got these in the color Oahu Clouds!

    Fortunately (or unfortunately), I no longer reach for any other pair of shorts.

    Usually, I dread wearing denim shorts because they're either too short, itchy, or just plain weird-looking. But these fit like a dream and look so damn good!

    They are not fake pockets. I repeat, they are not fake pockets!

    I slip my MetroCard and my keys in these all the time and so far, nothing's fallen out.

    Great back pockets for putting your phone in too!

    All in all, they're definitely the comfiest shorts I've owned, and I can't wait to wear them for a long time.

    They're currently sold out at Levi's, but I grabbed them on Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes 24–34 and 11 colors).
