As I was browsing through inventory sitting on my couch late at night (the way I prefer to shop), I came across this pair of shorts. It caught my eye because I remembered the distinct pockets on Taverniti So Jeans. So I was wondering what shorts these were that appeared identical to the brand. These are Jimmy Taverniti Shorts. Jimmy Taverniti (named after the founder) is a new line and also a sister brand to Taverniti So.
I need to begin this review with the rear pockets because that is one of the main things that really sets these shorts apart from others. Jimmy Taverniti’s signature rear pockets are extremely flattering to the rear, which is always a plus for me. With their double rear pockets—welt pockets with a button and loop closure as well as the plain classic pockets, there’s no mistaking the brand of these shorts.
I really like the fit on these shorts. They’re not super short, having a 4 inch inseam. I think the length on these is just about perfect for me. I don’t prefer my shorts to be super short, but I also don’t like when shorts are too long either. They’re also more relaxed in fit. They’re not skin tight. In fact, I’d say these run about a size large. But since I prefer to wear my shorts more relaxed, going with my normal size works just fine for me. They have a higher rise of 10 inches. They actually don’t feel that high because of the relaxed fit that allows these to rest a bit on my hips.
The wash is called Destroy Turquoise, which is a dark blue wash with fading and whiskering. And there’s also destroyed holes along the front and rear pockets. The bottom hem and destroyed areas have a turquoise color mixed in with the wash. There’s also a built in permanent 1 inch cuff at the bottom of the 21 inch leg opening. There’s a nice yellow contrast stitch that really adds to the wash.
Made of 98% cotton and 2% elastan, these have a little stretch. And I’ve noticed that they do stretch out a bit after a little wear.
Washing instructions are: machine wash in cold, tumble dry low, use low iron if necessary.
