I wanted to make these shorts years ago already. It was supposed to be the 2nd product (Right after the DAYFARER backpack).
I have been making prototypes for it, for over 2 years now and always found something I did not like.
Now, I finally got it and I can not wait for you to check it out.
After going to various fabric fairs and testing fabrics from all over the world, I have found the perfect fabric for the DAYFARER shorts.
A fabric from Schoeller (an innovative textile manufacturer with the headquartered in Switzerland).
I have chosen a heavy Schoeller fabric for its durability, which however, because of the 4way stretch and the cut, still feels light and moves great.
The exterior is water resistant, dries quickly and keeps its shape, while the double weave fabric on the inside, reduces the surface contact to the skin contact and makes the shorts more comfortable to wear.
For hardware I choose a Swiss made RIRI button and YKK zipper and for extra security added a hidden zip pocket and a small phone pocket.
