There are two ways to construct shorts. Using 2 & 4 panels.
There is no difference when you wear either garment, but
there is a difference if you wish to have side pockets.


In order to have side pockets, we need to use the 4 panel
construction. This creates a seam on both sides of your legs and
makes the garment stronger and able to support extra weight.


We use the 2 panel shorts because they are cheaper
(less work) and they also allow uninterrupted graphics
on the sides (no sewing line).
