Italian Gabardine Belted Short in Dark Brown

Todd Snyder


These chic shorts are a spin on our Wythe Trouser: casual but refined, in a modern oversized but tailored fit. A natural waist and double reverse pleats (which face out, away from the fly) lead to a relaxed fit for a vintage-inspired look. At the waist is a removable belt in the same chic fabric the rest of the shorts are cut from — an Italian gabardine, a type of twill worsted wool first introduced in the late 19th century. Lightweight, breathable and durable, our take is a transitional weight 4-ply wool with perfect structure and drape. Another special tailoring detail we love: the split back at the waist. Hot days are all about finding easy pieces that make a quick impact, and these pants do just that: style them simply with a tucked-in tank, or double down on volume with a slouchy top.

Tollegno 1900 (founded in its eponymous year) oversees its entire production chain — from raw materials to spinning to weaving — in pursuit of continuing Italy’s Biellese wool textile tradition.
