THE MAKING OF AN OB CLASSIC
All OB swim shorts are based on a 17 piece pattern of a traditional mans pair of trousers. They have details such as four part shaped waistbands with double fusing, darts at the back and a tailored fit.
OB Classic shorts vary in length from Springer (shortest), Setter (short), Bulldog (mid-length) to Dane (long) – and of course, the Whippet short for women. Each tailored for style, comfort and the ultimate fit, designed to take you from sun lounger to sundowner. What is the perfect length for you? We want you to look and feel great.
As we know it’s all in the details. The signature OB branded side fasteners are one of our distinguishing features. Elasticated waistbands are not for us – instead, ours are made up of 4 parts to create a curved shape and feature adjustable side fasteners for a tailored fit, as well as a zip fly and hidden metal popper closures. Our aim was to create the ultimate versatile short. That’s why we use 100% polyamide, quick-drying fabric so you can wear them straight out of the pool and into the bar.
