Stitched shorts: What's in a name

Stitched shorts were designed to help men make the most of summer’s good times and that is reflected in the names given to each design, which have been inspired by iconic destinations from around the world that we have been lucky enough to visit. Each of these places shares the same values as Stitched shorts: modern twists on classic concepts, a global outlook, and premium offerings mixed with bags of character.
