About to sound like an old goat here but, back when Tony and I were kids, whatever shorts you had were once a pair of pants.

No one went "short" shopping because there were no shorts out there other than a swim suit or these really gnarly, angry, tight, polyester coach shorts made to hug your bunz while you yell at your players who are not trying hard enough.

Our job, as the warm weather drew near, was to essentially wear out a pair of pants at the knee so Mom could grab the scissors to make that cut just above the hole. It took about a minute and bam, you got your shorts for the summer.

Big Tony and I are the same age, and without a doubt, that cutoff era represented being outside, building jumps and skate ramps, hustling some change to lock down that combo coke/cherry Slurpee, and maybe even throw in a rock fight with the neighborhood kids. These were good days, all of them.

We wore cutoffs and decades later, we are happy to bring these back into the fold.

Cheers and thanks for listening,

Tony Patella

    A solid pair

    I jumped at these shorts when the 20% coupon came around and I’m glad I did. You can tell right away that the fabric is durable and will last a lifetime. The pockets are nice and deep. The hips fit a little bit wider giving them a “dad vibes” kind of look. Lots of space to move around in, but I would not describe them as “baggy”. The length hits the sweet spot for me just above the knee. Not too short, not too long. I plan to grab another pair in olive green when my size comes back in stock!

    khaki shorts

    these shorts are really well made and the cut is terrific. I’m 5’11 and 190 and I got L. It’s unpleasant shipping charges here to Canada but I know I’ll have these for a long time and that makes it all good. Just wish I had bought both pairs bc I know I’ll be buying those (olive) eventually. Great work and thank youuui!

    Size 33, snug at first then perfect, don't need a belt yet. As they stretch over the comi weeks, might need a belt with all my shit in my pockets. They come to my knees. So glad, tired of all the short shorts everybody has been making the last few years.

    Perfect fit and so darn comfortable! Every Tellason item I own (which is a lot) is just perfect! These shorts will be worn all summer and then some.
