amsterdam shorts - red check
Like you didn't try at all. These are oversized, super high waisted shorts with a flared silhouette and cinched waist. Invisible zip closure with a vintage mother-of-pearl button. Unlined. Add a vintage tee and espadrilles, or dress them up with a backless top and heeled boots. Matching scrunchie included!
Our vintage-fabric-womenswear is made using vintage fabric remnants dating 1930-1989, meaning each piece has zero impact on the environment and is what we like to call few-of-a-kind™. We only found enough of this red check cotton (circa 1980s) to make 14 pairs of shorts! Ethically made in NYC by our legendary seamstress. BTW our sizes may run slightly small. For a perfect fit, measure yourself— these best fit a 24 inch waist in XS, 26 in S, 28 in M, 30 in L, and 32 in XL (and if we're sold out or you'd like something custom to your measurements, check out our made-to-order page).
*Please note, these materials were upcycled from pre-consumer vintage textiles, aka a fancy way of saying recycled. This means the fabric can be delicate, and the content not always guaranteed (our specialists assess). Dry clean only— or try lazy washing: spot-clean, pat odorous areas with vodka, and place in the freezer for a day.
