  • Fit: True to size

Ridiculously comfy, slightly baggy, stretchy for movement and just an all-around great short. Love the corduroy fabric choice too--just works so well with the way these look and feel. Length is not overly short--no worries though, still stylin', flattering and fun.

Wahoo for Oahu shorts! Relaxed for sure!

So I have many many good things to say about Carve Design's Oahu relaxed corduroy shorts, I must admit that they are a little longer from crotch-to-top than I imagined, expected, and hoped for. Though, the fabric is flexible and forgiving enough that you can rock a saggier hang for a more boyfriend look. But hey, if needs be, buy a smaller size for a more fit feel - they're somewhat flexible enough to be daring and size down. They dont stretch much with wear but they are forgiving enough to do so. As far as the color - the description is right on point - I dont normally wear any shade of purple but the color seems a little grey and that's exactly how they look in person: grayish with an overall "muted" purple or in other words, not vibrant or loud by any means.
The length is...well I would describe it high thigh but not cheeky; cool yet modest.
The corduroy fabric is also cool and modern, lightweight for sure. These are a great choice for corduroy-first-timers so if you're on the fence, buy & try em!

Can't Own Enough of These Shorts

I found these shorts last year on and fell in love immediately. So much so that I've got one in each color. They're comfortable, stylish, durable (I know because I've put them through the wringer), and just the best for kicking it in spring/summer. If only I could wear them to work every day, not just casual Friday.
I wanted a more relaxed fit so I ordered a 6 versus my normal size 4.


    Great short! Stylish and comfortable! True to size, easy to wash.

    Don't listen to men that review for their SOs, get your normal size. These shorts are super cute, and comfortable.

    These shorts are awesome! Very comfy, stretchy and light for summer fun! I felt they fit true to size, I purchased the 4's.

    stylish, stretchy summer goodness!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large

    I picked up a pair of these for my wife and she is loving them. They seem to run just a bit large originally i purchased a 4 for her and had to exchange it for a 2. They are super cute, not too tight and have plenty of stretch for fun summer activities.
