Sometimes the most obvious insights are sitting right in front of you. Our OG Cloth is what we used in both our very first pants and very first shorts. As a pants fabric it's decidedly middle weight, versatile and capable of being worn year round. As shorts fabric it's actually on the heavier side, but that heaviness is masked by its incredible four-way stretch and doubleweave features. Like a superstar athlete it breathes and moves like a far lighter fabric, but with all the strength and durability that extra mass provides.

What the OG Cloth needed to reach its full potential as a shorts fabric was to break free of the tailored tradition of our previous shorts. We started with a new integrated waistband construction designed to maximize movement. We added a gusseted crotch, not for our usual movement driven reasons, but because it allowed us to taper the leg opening while leaving loads of breathing room up top. We kept some crucial details and added a few subtle new ones. Flow through pockets and an internal drawcord for swimming, self closing magnetic rear pockets, a front slider button and integrated key loop on the waistband.

The result is a new shorts silhouette that both looks and moves incredibly well and with all the performance of our OG Cloth, plus a little bit more.
OG Cloth Logo
Our core OG Cloth: breathable, comfortable and durable, the most versatile fabric around. The self-cleaning nanosphere treatment means that coffee, wine and dirt roll off with ease, keeping you looking fresh and clean in the trickiest of situations. The Schoeller Dryskin Extreme fabric looks elegant, yet repels water. But when it does saturate, it will dry in minutes (generally around 15-20). The doubleweave structure means it's tough and durable on the exterior, yet soft and comfortable inside. The four way stretch doubles-down on that comfort and moves freely through any situation.
