I'm just wondering if I can get shorts tailored to be slimmer. I know its probably a stupid question. Sorry.

Yes. I get my shorts and pants slimmed regularly. The first time I asked my tailor to slim down a pair of shorts, he looked at me funnily. After a while, he got used to it.

Thanks for the help guys. I will try that next week when I have a day off then.

I was also wondering if anyone knows somewhere that sells slimmer shorts. I like J.Crew shorts, and I just bought two pairs of the 9" inch broken-in chino (the one's I would like to get tailored). I just feel they're too relaxed for the look I'm going for. Any other help in finding a slimmer pair that rests right above the knee OTR will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

My sister's boyfriend buys slim-fitting chinos and gets those hemmed to shorts. They look really good on him.

That's a good idea and I will keep an eye open for cheaper slim fitting chinos, but I want to see if anyone knows any slim fitting slightly above the knee shorts that would fit well off the rack.

alts on shorts are the same as for trousers.
