What Size Should I Order?

FOR GENERAL SIZING INFORMATION: Our Size Charts and Short Men's Style Guides are a great place to start. If you need a tape measure to take your measurements, you can find one here


As we like to say around here, EveryBODY is different =) So height alone doesn't always translate to a specific inseam (since some guys are all torso, others all legs). Your safest bet is to measure a pair of pants that fit well. Simply fold them in half lengthwise and measure from crotch seam to hem with a soft tape measure. With that said, in general, we recommend:

25" (2XSH) for men up to 5'5" 26/27" (XSH) for men up to 5'7"

28/29" (SH) for men up to 5'9"


There are a few ways to figure out your waist size.
1) For general Waist Sizes, generally Medium is 32-34" Large is 36-38" X-Large is 40-42", etc.
2) If you know your actual waist measurement, consult the size chart posted on each specific item page (look for the tab marked "size charts/measurements"). Use the chart to convert your actual waist to a general size
3) the easiest way: whatever size you generally purchase in elastic waist items (like boxers, pj bottoms or swim trunks) is likely the same size you would order from us in general size items
