The Hammies short is an old short for a new generation. This short style was popularized in the 1960s in Southern California and for 3 decades it was the staple of skateboarders, surfers, rollerskaters, camp counselors, Tom Selleck, and many more. In the mid-1980s, shorts got longer and pants got baggier and for the proceeding 3 decades, the shorts were forgotten (a period also known as the The Shorts Dark Ages). Fast-forward to 2017: Hammies has revived the forgotten shorts in all of their primary-colored and wide-waled corduroy glory and all is right with the world again.
In short, the Hammies short is a homage to a time when shorts were shorter, fuzzier, and more colorful. (Seeing as your are buying kid's shorts, you are probably a mom or dad) These are the shorts you wore back in 60s-80s!

See our Size Chart for measurements for each size.
Thewhite- and sand-colored shorts are not preshrunk, so you can expect the white to shrink a half size (e.g. 20 to 19) and the sand to shrink almost a full size (e.g. 20 to 18).
If the shorts don't fit like you expect, you can swap them out for a different size at no cost to you (US customers only). See our return policy for details.
