The classic straight short

Inspired by visionaries who spoke simply (and said everything), the Arlo is Denim Forum's signature straight-leg short. Arlo's easy high rise and thigh-grazing hem are designed for an effortless look. Premium Italian, organic cotton denim wears beautifully over time — we call it performance art. This version comes in washed black and has a frayed hem.

How Does it Fit?
The perfect summer shorts
I love the Arlo jeans so buying the shorts was a no brainer for me. As someone who struggles with finding the right shorts i just want to say wow. The mid thigh is perfect length where i don’t have to think twice about being able to bend over. air dry for the best results

Flattering and relatively modest
As a 30 year old mom, I love that the mid thigh length is not showing off too much leg or butt, but is still short (however, I am tall). My true size is 26 but I’m used to buying one size lower in shorts, but for Denim Forum brand, it’s true to size (26).

Fave denim short!
Love these shorts! I have them in two colours and I wear them more often than any other denim shorts I own. They're the perfect rise and I love the mid thigh length. Comfortable and wearable. I normally take a 25 or 26 in jeans depending on the brand. Got the size 25 as they have a bit of stretch to them.
