Killer shorts are not necessarily easy to come by. Ideally, you’d cut off some of your old jeans… and voila! Only it never really works out that way. They either end up too short,  too long, or the cut of the jean is out-of-date… and if it’s not, then why would you be cutting up a perfectly good pair of jeans?! Do yourself a favor and leave this one up to experts!
