So it seems that I’ve been on a quest to find the perfect denim shorts.  And by perfect in my definition, they are fairly relaxed fitting, not too short, not too long, and the perfect blue faded color.  So when I saw these shorts, I was overjoyed to finally come so much closer to my end goal.  These are Insight Boyfriend Blues Thrashed Shorts.

I didn’t realize it’d be so difficult to find shorts that were the perfect length (for me) until I began my quest as the weather began to warm up.  But it is, in fact, not easy to find this perfect length that I’m referring to.  And by perfect length, I mean not too short or too long.  I even tried a DIY project of cutting up an old pair of 7 For All Mankind shorts that were Bermuda length.  Good thing they were old because I completely botched up that project.  Well, I can joyfully say that these shorts are the perfect length.  They have an inseam of 3 ½ inches, and they hit just above my mid-thigh.  I love this length because I don’t feel they are super short like other shorts that make me feel self-conscious when wearing them.  And they don’t feel too long, as to make my legs look short.  The full length of the shorts is 14 inches.

The wash is called Beach Blue Classic, which is a very light blue denim.  There’s fading and whiskering along the front with heavy distress all along the front.  You can even see the front pockets peak through some of the holes.  But I like this kind of distress on shorts.  It gives a more worn, vintage appeal.

Made of 100%, these have a little stretch to them.  They do stretch out a bit with wear, as most 100% cotton material tends to do.  And they run large.  The sizing runs by XS, S, M, L, etc… and also by dress sizing, 2,4,6. etc.  Based on this sizing, I’d say these run almost a size large.  I wish I could have gone down a size because, although I don’t mind when my shorts are a little looser fitting, I think these are a little too big on me.  The rise measurement is 9 ½ inches with a button fly.  The leg opening is 22 inches, allowing for a more of a relaxed fit along the thighs.

Another big plus to these shorts is the price.  They’re a lot more affordable than most other designer denim prices.

Washing instructions are:  wash warm gentle cycle, do not bleach, tumble dry, warm iron on reverse, do not dry clean.
