Burkman Bros. 1 Patch Pocket Short
I've only been wearing one pair of shorts this summer. They're made of a funky Indian fabric with a great pattern and come from a company I've recently discovered called Burkman Bros. Burkman Bros is a contemporary brand founded by two brothers (named Burkman) who were formerly designers at Gap. The brand now resides at high end stores like Barneys, Bergdorf and Bloomingdale's. But these shorts have a story attached to them. When I first saw the fabric, I knew I had to get a pair, but stores had long sold out of the popular style. I emailed the brand website and found that they were more than happy to assist, suggesting a couple more stores that I could try to look for the shorts. Eventually, when I had no luck, the company found a sample pair of the shorts and I was able to meet up with Ben Burkman himself to collect them! Talk about insane customer service. You can check out their collection here. I'll be looking forward to seeing what they'll have in store for the fall.
