The Commuter Shorts

Organic Cotton Ponte de Roma

The brilliance and class of a dress pant meet the flexibility and feel of activewear.

The Commuter Shorts are crafted in Ponte de Roma stretch knit that we custom developed out of organic cotton and just a hint of elastane for a more sustainble stretch. A body-hugging high waist complements every torso and lays perfectly with every top. With a 9" inseam, they have you (literally) covered whether sitting cross-ankled in a meeting or cross-legged in the park. And, of course, the two 10" pockets are ready to hold keys, phone, wallet, everything.

Bianca, pictured here, is 5'3" and has a 27" waist, and 36" hip and wears a size S.

Why we make it:

The short answer? Fit & fabric. Our take on a bike short brings our classic tailoring and preference for natural materials to the athleisure sphere, resulting in a pair of shorts that have a sweatpants feel but dress pant appeal. Made in breathable organic cotton with just a touch of elastane, they follow your every curve and every move without pinching, bulging or riding up or down.

Meet our Ponte de Roma

We spent a year developing a custom stretch fabric that would use as little virgin plastic as possible, resulting in our 95% organic cotton, 5% elastane Ponte de Roma. Unlike the recycled polyester used in most athleisure, our fabric doesn't break down after every wash, and lets your skin breathe.

First developed in Italy, Ponte de Roma is a double knit made from two layers of fabric and knit with two needles. The name comes from its bridge-like overlocking construction ("ponte" means "bridge" in Italian). Measuring about 1mm thick, that gently hugs the body, it offers more structure and polish than the average stretchy legging, and its cool matte finish ups the classiness factor.

With 4-way stretch technology, they're perfect for sitting, standing, running fashionably late, eating your favorite meal, and biking. All while looking extremely, extremely good.

With two 10" pockets, you don't have to cram your phone, wallet, keys, clutch, and iced coffee into one hand.
