Ixchel's summer shorts: Our Classic Patchwork Cargo shorts, hand woven cotton shorts, our new embroidered and garment dyed shorts, 18 varieties of stylish summer shorts for men, and 5 for women. All with elastic waist band and drawstring, and our famed concealed pocket.
Our hand woven shorts now come in unique variants, so we ship you the exact color & pattern you see, our garment dyed shorts are beautifully softened in vibrant colors, and our patchwork shorts, well, since we introduced them on Phish tour in '98, they have created a fashion niche for themselves.
Our Classic Cargo Patchwork shorts with a Terrapin applique, lovingly embroidered with a hand woven ikat applique! The same classic style that took the lot by storm in the summer of '98, upgraded (we never stop upgrading, even our classic styles, they may have the same look that defined the patchwork style, but in little ways we keep improving them) In our soft corduroy, dyed in house so they match, and cotton twill, with a big cargo pocket and our Terrapin applique in the center.
In 3 colors and 4 sizes, Medium to XX Large. $59.00
We just updated 1 image- the latest batch in green have a lighter olive color in the twill patches (see image on menu) we will probably go back to the original palette later this year, but for now, this is the green we are shipping.
Our new all patchwork summer shorts! Lighter than corduroy, but still durable, in 100% cotton hand woven mercerized native Ikat. Not quite as long as our "XC" style cargo shorts, but still over the knee. We aren't going to do unique variants on these, the colors of the individual patches will vary slightly, but all are in the same color family your choice of Blue, Green, or Café, and the woven patterns will always vary.
Our newest summer short! We found this light but durable cotton, yarn dyed in great colors, so we blended them with hand woven native ikat.
Available in three colors, the dyed cotton comes in Green, Blue and Cafe, then we match it up with hand woven ikat in the same colors. We don't need to sell them as individual variants, as there is only a small variation in the pattern of the ikat cloth. Available in Med, Lg, X-Lg. & XX-Lg.
NOW IN STOCK!!
The original Ixchel shorts; corduroy (of course!) and cotton twill patches, hip and cargo pockets, in three colors, green, blue, and café, but you knew that too, and our concealed pocket. Drawstring plus elastic waist, cut long, so you might want to go a size smaller than usual for you.There is a size chart on the home page of the shorts collection.

SEPT !! : MOST SIZES / COLORS ARE BACK IN STOCK !!
We managed to get one last end of summer run of the garment dyed patchwork shorts back in; this is it for this 2016; we'll have a new garment dyed collection in 2017!
We are truly sorry if your size or color is no longer available, demand for the garment dyed shorts was much higher than we anticipated this summer.
New for 2017! In our new lightweight cotton, our classic big cargo short with a mountain landscape lovingly appliqued and embroidered on the cargo pocket, in a rich forest green or a rich chocolate brown. Medium, Large, X-Large & XX-Large.
NOW IN STOCK!!
We took our popular Terrapin embroidery and put it on these cargo shorts, in a soft summer weight cotton, dyed, softened and pre-shrunk to perfection. In two colors, Forest and Dark Smoke. The Dark Smoke option has a hand woven Ikat applique in the center. M, L, XL, & now in XXL. 6 Pockets plus our concealed pocket. Cut in a long, baggy pattern, like all our "X" collection pants and shorts.
NOW BACK IN STOCK ALL COLORS/SIZES!!
Please note the "Smoke"color from last year is now in a Dark Brick color for fall; most people like it, but it is not the grey we offered this spring. (The individual product image shows the new color)
(the same short in our new Two-Headed Mayan Eagle DOES come in the Sky Grey)
( the same short with a Lotus embroidery in two different colors-still available)
We can honestly say this new style came about by popular demand. People have asked us, more and more in the last couple of years, to do products with the Ganja leaf, or Ganja plant, for decoration, and to make a statement. We knew that if we did it, it would have to be stylish and artistically executed. We put a lot of effort in the embroideries, and we hope the result pleases everyone. In our new summer cloth, we're calling the colors, just for fun, Jamaican Green, and Chocolate Thai. Medium, Large, X-Large, XX-Large.
Of course we know it will be 10 years or more before it is legal in all 50 states, and so, our famed concealed pocket is still right where it ought to be.
NOW IN STOCK!
