The OB Guarantee



We are so confident in the quality of our tailored swim shorts that we will guarantee them for five years. If you have bought a pair of swim shorts and they have not performed as they should, Orlebar Brown will repair or replace them. Ageing is to be expected and after several years of sun, sea, pools and parties we’d imagine your shorts to look well-loved. We are not promising they will look ‘out-of-the-packet’ brand new, but, if at any point during that time they fail you due to a manufacturing defect, we will repair them if we can or replace them—free of charge. The Orlebar Brown Guarantee is born out of pride in everything we do.

Despite all the hard work we put in to making each swim shorts, time will affect their appearance. Wear and tear will make its mark, such as colour fade or depending on what adventures you may take them on, staining and abrasions to the fabric.

If you have cared for your shorts with the same love and affection that went in to making them, things that shouldn’t happen are:

- The hardware breaking or detaching -

- Stitching coming away -

- Extreme colour loss -

Simple things to help keep your shorts looking their best are:

- Rinsing after use -

- Ensure completely dry before storing -

- Washing at 30 degrees and not tumble drying -

- Washing and rinsing separately -

- Taking care not to use abrasive detergent or spot stain remover -
