Roark Revival Chennai Short - Men's

Banana pancake chic.

Halfway from Chiang Mai to Krabi province, you put on Roark Revival's Chennai Short, and your whole trip changed. The lightweight, full cotton fabric breathed easy and complimented your already-minimalist Banana-pancake chic. The patch pockets were deep, and stored plenty of bhat for street food and the all-night Thai coffee binge that culminated  on a bonfired beach for sunrise.

Chennai Style

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 28

Soft cotton, button fly, biiiiig pockets, and an above the knee (just above, im not singing the short shorts song) fit makes this one of the most appealing shorts I have bought in years. I needed something that would work well for general daily use, but less formal then a chino short, and great for lounging around in. You could think of them like board shorts for daily wear.
