The Bessie is the city short designed to take you from urban summer to beachside with ease. Based on the best selling Amelia Trouser, the Bessie Short is the same beautifully tailored fit around the bum, hips and waist, with the shorts fanning out into a soft A-line shape. The Bessie Short is cut to flatter, finishing elegantly just below mid thigh. This timeless silhouette will be your go-to wear-on-repeat summer outfit base.

Streamlined but functional, discreet side pockets with deep pocket bags bring a practicality to summer dressing, whilst the back patch pockets hold an unexpected detail; a delicate embroidered flower. Finished with a metal zip fly, and fly clip and hidden jigger button to fasten securely, and khaki topstitching, the Bessie Short is a spring summer staple.

For the full co-ordinating look the Bessie Shorts can be teamed with the matching Frances Shirt for the perfect green summer co-ord.

Wash less, love always

We recommend hanging your shorts to air outdoors, rather than washing after every wear. This way, they will last longer and also have a lower environmental impact. Spot clean marks with warm soapy water, and when it does need a wash, follow our care advice:

  • Machine wash 30 degrees
  • Wash with similar colours
  • Medium iron
  • Do not bleach
  • Do not tumble dry

A note on our cotton and Codelite® buttons

Our textured olive cloth is from designer deadstock, bought through Fabric House, an Italian supplier who helps ensure surplus cloth from fashion houses gets repurposed. We’ve used Codelite® for our buttons, a natural material made from casein, a protein derived from milk. Codelite® is also biodegradable, which means your shirt’s impact on the environment once it reaches the end of its lifecycle will be reduced further.

The Bessie Short is handmade in the UK, in North East London at MAES, just down the road from the Saywood studio, keeping our carbon footprint minimal.
