These shorts are technically still denim, and are still cut as jeans but they use a 4-way stretch material and are “gusseted with taint-cooling technology.” So that sounds pretty great.
Ripton & Co jeans are manufactures in a factory in Los Angeles, so they’re very American. They are available in men’s and women’s, and hemmed or raw-cut. They are available in one-inch increments, from 27 to 36. A pair of Ripton & Co Tech Jorts will run you $90.
