Taking inspiration from 20th century military riding breeches, Motiv have cut these shorts with a high rise and contrasting wide waistband. These feature precise pocket reinforcement stitching, another historical nod, as well as a drawstring inside the waistband that can be used to adjust your fit.

It's made from a 100% linen delave herringbone fabric, produced by some of the top linen weavers in China. The texture comes both from the weave and from the dye, as multiple differently colored yarns are used to create it, giving the fabric a texture reminiscent of tweed. This effect is helped by the slubby nature of the heavy linen.

The extended waistband is made from a 55% linen / 45% cotton blend, that gives the garment a touch more structure as well as contrast. There's also a single welted pocket in the rear, with a button closure, so you have somewhere safe to put your cash or government bonds.

Fits true to size. Wash cold on delicate and hang dry.
