The vintage short short
Inspired by women who pushed creative boundaries, the Yoko Short is Denim Forum’s signature slim cut-off. A high rise and side slits give them extra personality, while premium Italian, 100% organic cotton denim becomes more beautiful over time — we call it performance art. This version comes in a medium vintage blue wash and has a raw hem.

denim shorts
I am so glad you sent me this email, I washed the shorts and the dye on the leather patch on the back rant when I washed it in cold water. Not only did this ruin the shorts it also ruined everything else that I washed with it.

Runs small -- could be nice for the right person
I love the Yoko jeans, I have two pairs in size 26. So i ordered the same in the shorts. I was surprised to find I can barely put the 26 on. I had to order a size 28! And the 28 fit but was not super flattering. I have an atheletic build. (waist 27: hip 27) I feel this model would be best for those girls with a very slim figure.

SO CUTE! But, too big!
These shorts are super cute!! Unfortunately, I ordered a 27 and it was definitely big on me. I'm 5'4, 124lb. I usually fit between a 26-27 in jeans/shorts, and I decided to order a 27. Definitely should have gone with the 26. I'm returning the 27 and exchanging for the 26, hopefully it'll fit!

How Does it Fit?
Great quality! The sizing was small though :(
Thick jean material! But fit was way too snug on me. And it was looser on my hips. My thighs are really big and the material doesn’t give. I had to return unfortunately:(

How Does it Fit?
Super super cute shorts, if I could even get them up my thighs. The biggest size was still too small. Guess Aritzia isn’t made for bigger girls

Best shorts I own
These are the best fitting shorts I've ever had. Usually the legs are way too tight or the waist is way too loose (I'm not even curvy so it's always weird), but these have just enough room in the legs, and only a slight gap at my waist. I would recommend sizing down as my waist is like 32.5" the 31 still gives me like an extra inch at the waist. They're also the perfect shorts length for tall people, or anyone who wants shortish shorts that prevent your thighs from rubbing together. I would give it 10 stars if I could, the only thing is that I found the black ones fit slightly looser in the hips than the two blue colours, but not enough to warrant sizing down again.

Just too big
I like the short, either the materials and the color looks nice to me. Just the size is not accurate. I ordered size 23, at the waist part, it still too big to me. Normally Levi’s size 23 fits me.

Size up
This is my second pair, the first I had to return as even though my regular size is a 28 I was unable to button it up. I now have a size 30. Please consider sizing up.

Perfect length!
Great fit, true to size! I’m a 25 in denim forum jeans and it was the same for these shorts. Love the mid thigh length- a great alternative to short shorts
