Arpenteur Sews Up Its Cargo Shorts in Cotton/Linen Gabardine

Arpenteur’s Cargo Shorts are the ultimate summer shorts for those wishing to channel the coveted “dad-core” look. Crafted in France from a blend of cotton and linen gabardine, they’re as light and breezy as a dad joke at the barbecue.

With roomy pockets that act as a point of difference for both form and function, these shorts feature a drawstring elastic waist and a relaxed, high-waisted fit. They’re available in two extremely versatile colors – midnight navy and stone – these shorts look great dressed up with a crisp white oxford and a pair of brown suede loafers or dressed down with a pair of ankle-high socks, some grey 990s, and a loose oversized tee.

Each pair is made in France by skilled craftspeople who’ve pulled off a techy side seam-free construction that elevates the clean aesthetic to new levels.

Available for $269 from Lost & Found.
