When we set out to design the ultimate mid-length shorts, the obvious starting point was the classic 5 incher.
So-called due to the length of the in-seam, 5 inch shorts have always been the garment of choice for the runner favouring a more casual aesthetic.
Disregarding orthodoxy, our designers rightly believed the mid-length formula could be improved upon, and so began a lengthy process.
In order to perfect the desired silhouette, we experimented with the in-seam over many iterations, before the optimum length was achieved.
Short enough to athletically reveal the quads but long enough to maintain a casual aesthetic, all whilst offering total movement, it became apparent the magic number was closer to 4 than 5.
4.13 inches to be precise.
