finally, a non-gendered bike short for everyone to enjoy. cheekily, a little shorter than the typical bike short - these beauties are full of personality. they have a dropped crotch with some extra space around there before tightening up to give a classic tight fit from the lower-thigh down. a pocket on each side + built with heavy, premium 100% cotton - they're more for casual or formal wear than an actual bike. born out of a mission to use every piece of leftover fabric from crafting 'the legging'. enjoy.
