The Commuter Shorts
Matte Black Ponte
Merging the brilliance and class of a dress pant with the beauty of flexibility, The Commuter Shorts are the only shorts of her kind.
With a body-hugging high waist, she complements every torso and lays perfectly with every top. Plus, with an 9" inseam, The Commuter Shorts are suited for sitting cross-ankled in a meeting or cross-legged in the park. And, of course, she comes with two 10" pockets ready to hold keys, phone, wallet, everything.
And it's all made possible by our material: organic Ponte de Roma. Tired of athleisure that was full of plastic, we custom developed the perfect double layer stretch knit with a cool matte finish and a think, polished handfeel -- all with the comfort of a sweatpant.
The short answer: fit and fabric
By cutting a classic, tailored silhouette using comfortable 4-way stretch technology, we took the “bike short” genre to new heights.
And in 94% organic cotton Ponte de Roma, they’re the sustainable summer short of your dreams.
Meet our Ponte de Roma
Working with our mill in Portugal, we set out to develop our own material that would use as little virgin plastic as possible. After a year’s worth of weave samples and lab dips, we got it right: a signature Ponte de Roma made with 94% organic cotton and only 6% elastane. Unlike recycled polyester, our 94% organic cotton ponte de roma is a sustainable solution that won’t break down fast with every wash.
Measuring about 1mm thick, our Ponte de Roma is a firm, sturdy material that offers more structure and polish than your average stretchy legging. With a cool matte finish, it hugs the body gently. And with 4-way stretch technology, it’s perfect for sitting, standing, running fashionably late, eating your favorite meal, and biking. All while looking extremely, extremely good.
