I had wondered about making a pair for Jed.
But Tildy said they were a bit too cool for Daddy.....
The Jedediah shorts by Thread Theory.
A slim fitting, groovy, seriously-nice-to-sew pair of shorts.
Hugo fit into the smallest sizing and I made them, no mods.
They look quite dressy with a nice shirt.
Decent size belt loops.
Wear them casual
Wear them dressy.
Or somewhere in between.

I purchased the PDF pattern which is considerably cheaper then the paper pattern ($11 compared to $20).
It goes together quite well with only a few dodgy joins but it does make a huge sheet. I found folding it like a commercial pattern and storing it in ziplock bag works best.
As for sewing, all the pieces sew up well. I found the instructions good but confusing at times.
There are good diagrams but they are not always directly next to to corresponding text.
But remember, I sewed these with a nine week old baby for company, sleep deprivation anyone?
I think they are slim enough through the leg but Hugo (and the girls at school) think they look great!
(And Hugo does have muscular thighs)
It would be fairly easy to do a narrower seam allowance to add some ease.
Over all, I thoroughly recommend them.
Navy is jolly hard to photograph.
