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 Shorts Dark Ages). Fast-forward to 2017: Hammies has revived the once forgotten shorts in all of their primary-colored and wide-waled corduroy glory and once again, all was right with the world.

In short, the Hammies short is a homage to a time when shorts were shorter, fuzzier, and more colorful. These are your dad's shorts!

  • 🌱 Stretch corduroy (98% cotton, 2% elastic)
  • 📏 3" inseam
  • 🤸‍♂️ Elastic waist
  • 💎 Copper snap


The fit is true-to-size. If you're between sizes, size up if you're trying to skate or do activities and size down if you're trying to show off that bootay 🍑
