You must be the person they are using to make pants patterns. Did you look at your photos and see how great your bum looks in these shorts?

I've been waiting anxiously for the official review since you first mentioned these on the message board. They turned out great!

How does the mock fly work? Is it top-stitching or something additional? I love a fly front and would love to learn any new techniques for one.

Wow! Shorts in November- I wish I dared expose my legs for photos now! They look very nice, Mary.

Martha, the mock fly has an extended facing, and no separate facings or fly shield. Thanks everyone, for your kind comments and ignoring my winter white skin.

Oh, you look great in your shorts. I do not dare wear them. Looks like you are practicing your zippers. It's snowing here and your making shorts. You look hot.
