How do you choose your right size?

  1. The golden rule here is MEASURE YOUR WAIST.
  2. Do not choose the same size short as your jeans. Jeans come up large and stretch over time.
  3. It's helpful to take some measurements from your old favourite shorts and compare against the size charts above.
  4. If you are in-between sizes we recommend choosing the size up.
