whats so funny about that ?

Uh, jean shorts? I'd say that, generally speaking, jean shorts = not cool.

I suppose you could get a cheap pair of raws and have them hemmed to above the knee...

Yeah I don't know what it is, everyone seems to hate on denim shorts but where I'm from, they're kinda cool.

My mate has a pair of slim jims cut off to just above the knee, and another mate has a pair of ralfs to the same with the cuff.

I'm gonna cut myself a pair this summer coming up, I don't know what jeans I'll use yet tho.

My recommendation is to look for a pair of slightly used jeans in your size here or on SUFU and just chop em off and let the fray up.

That will be hot inside raw jeans in summer.

oh well, depends how u wear with and what you wear it with.. and its hot during summer, i reckon short jeans +tshirt+ flipflop/plimsolls aint that bad at all.

i think jean shorts look good, especially raw, last summer i wore my cut off jims like every day

just cuff them to the knee and roll them while cuffing:mrgreen:

i've never been a fan of denim shorts, but it should be interesting to see how raw short denim look like.

Slim-fit denim shorts are freakin' huge this year in the indie style circles around Vancouver.

I'd really like a pair of SJDBC or SGDGC cutoffs.. Those'd be the nicest jean shorts you could have, I think.

I talked a guy at general pants at paddington (dont get why its there since its like 20m from the nudie store) and he got TFDBC and it stretched too much for him so he sized down on another pair and just cut the stretched out pair above the knee and cuffed em. Like zac said they arent hated here. Also ksubi sell a gray pair allredy worn and cuffed and everything~ they seem to be selling.

That's pretty cool. I like the trick where you get some nice dress pants at a second hand store and cut and hem them into some really nice shorts.

6th April 2008, 11:30
yeah mate, might just get myself some sj or equivalent if there's a cheap one up in the market place.

6th April 2008, 11:38
Cultizm had these really sick Levi's Red Shorts a while ago. Cant seem to find them anymore though.

6th April 2008, 11:50
i suppose they arent raw rite?

6th April 2008, 11:52
They were raw. Let me see if i can dig into the deep bottoms of the internet for some photos.
PS: The fit on them is really weird.. I think they are sick however.

To all you that lives in America and England and Canada.

Do you call it shorts when it is cut off just below the knee cap?

i think a baggy raw denim that is cut and cuffed so it is below the knee cap looks okey.

Would that be called shorts?

7th April 2008, 00:40
I would consider those to be shorts. Generally speaking, I never wear shorts that are above the knee.

7th April 2008, 00:43
thats what i thought. we call it shorts.
what would you call it?

7th April 2008, 00:43
i think we still do call them shorts, loste. :)

the only shorts that are above my knees are my swimming shorts :mrgreen:.

7th April 2008, 00:48
Shorts should be above the knee or at the kneecap, in my opinion. It's 2008, for god's sake. If you're going to wear shorts, wear shorts.

the only shorts that are above my knees are my swimming shorts :mrgreen:.

i only have one swimming shorts too.

i dont wear shorts ever. only jeans......yeeyyyy. JEANS..:mrgreen:

i wouldnt wanna cut off my jeans to make a senim shorts but those at the knee dont look bad at all imo.

I have a couple pairs of shorts, and both are at the knee-cap. I'm in basically the same boat as Loste, however, in that I never wear them. I've not been big on shorts since high-school where we weren't allowed to wear them because they're "childish looking." I haven't been there for over 8 years now, but that notion has stuck with me.

i reckon demin skinny shorts are hot. but i'm too scared to buy a pair of nudies and cutting them myself....but i really want a pair :-( does anyone have any suggestions ??? :?::?::?:

20th April 2008, 17:03
pick up a pair in your size for $50 at the next Nudie sale, that way you can look cool and keep the change!

21st April 2008, 09:30
zomg when are nudies on sale? :confused:
I don't think there's ever been one in brisbane. *sigh*

21st April 2008, 09:37
Ah yeah probably not in brisbane. The Nudie store in Sydney has the sale once or twice a year, last one was on australia day.

21st April 2008, 09:44
damn it. stupid Brisbane and it's lack of fashion sense. :-( :-(

21st April 2008, 18:08
