    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.

    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.

    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?
