The slacks and shorts both feature flattering soft pleats at front waistline. Small pocket at right front, pockets concealed in the side seams, and two back pockets style both views. Slacks are cuffed at lower edges whereas the shorts have a simple blind hem, and feature a buttoned flap on the small front pocket.
