For those looking to pick up a pair of minimally branded athletic shorts - look no further. Designed and produced entirely in the USA, American Trench's "Original Equipment" mesh shorts are exceptionally sturdy and well-made, with a great fit and several great color choices.

They're made from a heavy polyester mesh fabric, with an elasticated waist and internal drawstring that can be used to further adjust the fit. Featuring a very minimal design, the only distinguishing element is the small embroidered "OE" logo next to the left hip. There are also two hand pockets, located exactly where you'd expect them and serving the usual purpose of pockets.

If you're looking for a new set of shorts for more casual or athletic wear, make it these - they feel great, fit comfortably, breathe well and dry quickly. Function aside, they also look great, so you can wear them even if you aren't doing athletics.

Fits true to size, with an elasticated waistband and adjustable drawstring. Wash in cold water and dry on low heat.
