It's summer time sukkas, a great time for you to show off them legs! Mine are of a certain delicious bird variety, but still really strong mothercluckers. Enter Swrve's Cordura Denim Cigarette (Skinny Fit) Shorts. Unfortunately, this cut is not available any more with the Cordura denim but they are both offered separately.
With the redesign of the Cigarette shorts, subtle changes have been made. The left rear pocket now has a zipper to secure a wallet or phone. The phone pocket has been moved to the rear upper thigh as opposed to the previous slanted pocket within the right back pocket. If you don't think your Galaxy 500 phone won't fit in there, you're right. It barely fits an iPhone with a case. Though it is super useful for keeping the simple stuff organized (i.e.ID, CC's, cash, etc.). With the pen pockets on each side, the shorts are great at keeping me organized. The major change is in the fabric. They have now been cut with their Durable Cotton/nylon blend keeping them tough as nails. If you need the extra durability, the corder denim is still available in regular fit shorts and in several of their jeans.
These shorts are skinny fit to the T. The longer there ride the tighter they begin to fit, much like spandex. For those of you with regular to large quads, these would be sausage casings. Burstin'!
In addition to the front pen pockets, the shorts still keep true to several of the finer details. Reflective fabric on two of the rear reinforced belt loops, the gusseted crotch and high rear waist to hide your crack. The front is also slightly lower for your Texas-style buckles. Though skinny fit, they've broken in really well. Stretching the the Durable Cotton without busting the triple reinforced stitching, guarantees we'll be thrashing around in these puppies for at least another year and a half. Only now are we starting to see wear in the seat of the pants. With the additional nylon, wear shows as the cotton piling and is slightly lighter but not too noticeable.
Thanks to our model, Jeffery Bruckwicki (@jeffreyseamster) of Nock Co (nockco.com) and HLHuman. He's also rocking his Pelican Clip key loop w/ reflector available currently and exclusively at The Spindle. Thanks for wearing my shorts buddy.
