Fall front shorts?  A "fall front" is a flap that buttons up, forming what look like pockets on the sides.  This was the form of trousers before the popularity of the fly front.  I think it's a neat look.  I had a pair of favorite pants like this.  There was a waistband across the front with a button, and then the flap buttoned up over that. I believe there was a back elastic waistband.

I'll see if I can find a tutorial, but in the meantime, this page has some pics:  http://www.northwestjournal.ca/VI6.htm

Burdastyle also has a pattern called Ruby, which is for shorts that do up with buttons on the sides.
