We envisioned the MacReady as our everyday short, designed to take a beating over a long lifespan. It’s mostly cotton but has a trace of spandex for stretch. (Because you never know when you’re going to need to climb a tree, leap over a river, or make a dash for an airplane.) The fabric uses a brawny oxford weave for long-lasting durability, and we’ve fashioned side gussets for ample mobility when you’re on the go. You could hike or climb in this do-it-all short, but mainly you’ll just live in it.
