ABOUT THESE SHORTS
The Lining

The Lining

The inside of our shorts contains a mesh-net lining, so you can hop on a surfboard, play tennis, swim or just lounge around on the beach in perfect safety. Plus we have a zip fly and a metal popper enclosure, so there really shall be no escape.

The Tailored Waist

The Tailored Waist

The side fasteners (engraved with our name like a classy pair of cufflinks) are one of our distinguishing features. We don't do elasticated waistbands - instead, ours are made up of up to six component parts for a properly tailored fit, which you can adjust.

The Quick Drying Fabric

The Quick Drying Fabric

Nobody wants to stand around in soaking wet shorts, getting cold and uncomfortable. That's why we use 100% polyamide fabric, which has also been chlorine, salt water, light and rub-tested too. Not only is it durable, it dries in a flash.

All Orlebar Brown swim shorts are based on a the pattern of a traditional man's tailored trouser. They have details such as four part shaped waistbands with double fusing and darts at the back for a tailored fit.
