Sometimes, you don’t need to try to reinvent the wheel. Brooklyn-based label Left Field, a huge hit in Japan, seems to know just that, as they prove with their Preppy Shorts. Available in both blue chambray and a brighter plaid variety, the cotton shorts are the type of hassle-free clothing made for summer. Like all Left Field clothes, these vintage-inspired pieces are proudly handmade in the USA. Despite their simplicity, they do sport some interesting design details, like a subtle plaid-lined pocket on the chambray model. For more of the collection from Left Field, visit Uncle Sam.
