As Memorial Day creeps closer, so does the time to swap our trusty sweatpants for a pair of less-confining house shorts. While we have a few favorites of the genre — including basic house shorts from Soffe and Chris Black–approved pairs from Stone Island — Patagonia Baggies are among the most beloved styles, seeing as they’re the shorts of choice for no less than three Strategist writers and editors. Managing Editor Maxine Builder is a fan of the Barely Baggies in particular, writing that she wears her pairs — which have a shorter two-and-a-half-inch inseam — “all the time.” Today, we found them on sale at Reformation (in its “Bridal Guest” section of all places), just in time for all the days of sunbathing on your roof, bike riding, or watching TV (in front of your air conditioner) ahead. They come in pigeon blue or black and are available in sizes XS to XL.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
