Crafted from 49% Australian cotton, 49% US cotton, and 2% spandex. Why Australian cotton? As we continually look to improve our fabrics and their comfort, we discovered that in the past 10 years, Australia's cotton farmers have innovated their cotton production process by reducing 95% of the pesticides typically used while growing cotton. This has allowed cotton farmers to grow more cotton on less land, using less water and ultimately leading the world in sustainable cotton production. Using significantly less pesticides while growing - the cottons spinning ability is vastly improved because in it is less contamination, which in turn, creates a finer, more comfortable cotton. Add in an elastic waistband, two deep side slash pockets, and two back button close pockets, you have yourself one amazing pair of shorts.
