Full Product Description

'Jack' is a true original- the first jean ever designed uniquely for shorter men, up to 5'9". A true, short rise jean means the end of the baggy seat and bunching through the crotch, shorter lengths means no more sloppy hems. 'Jack' short men's jeans feature a tailored look and proper fit through the seat, hips and thighs.  FORtheFIT jeans fit short men properly- just below the natural waist. Our short length men's jeans feature available inseams from 26" to 30" to ensure men under 5'9" find the right length, out of the box, no tailoring required. Slim? Stout? The largest available range of waist sizes in the industry, from men's waist 28"-44", means we FIT you. Even seemingly small details like belt loop sizes, pocket placement, and more, were considered and adjusted for a perfect look and FIT.  In collaboration with our customers and designers- every detail was considered to craft the perfect FIT jean, just for YOU.

NOW AVAILABLE IN A SKINNY FIT SILHOUETTE- slimmer through the hips, thighs for a more tailored, modern look.  Skinny fit through legs. Skinny Fit Short Men's Jeans feature both a short rise and a lower rise than our Classic Fit 'Jack' Jean, sitting below the natural waist of a man with a true short rise. (*confused about the difference between a 'low rise' and 'short' rise'? Check out our article on the difference between low and short rise.)

'Jack' - with its classic style and comfortable, great-fitting straight leg fit, will be your new, go-to Jean. Featuring a classic five pocket design, zip fly, and our NEW Medium Blue rinse (subtle distressing throughout) in a premium cotton denim (with a touch of elasthane for comfort and all-day great looks), it's a well-rounded, truly versatile pair to add to your collection- perfect for every occasion.

Sizing Information / Size Charts

Size Charts will help you identify the perfect FIT for YOU in our Short Men's Pants. For additional sizing information, please check our Guide to Buying Short Men's Clothing and Short Men's Size Charts

There are 2 ways to find your waist size:

1) Please measure your natural waistline, or,

2) Measure the actual waistband on your best-fitting regular jeans or trousers

Whatever the actual measurement you see, that is the size you should order for a short rise jean or trouser. Don't simply order the size you've always purchased in regular rise trousers, order your actual waist measurement in short rise trousers and prepare yourself for fit on a whole other level than you've experienced before.

For length, we provide INSEAM length. Inseam refers to the distance from crotch seam to hem.

NEW to wearing "Short Rise" Pants? If you have never had a true short-rise pair of pants before, you are in for a treat. But, please keep in mind that you may find that you need to go UP a waist size from your usual purchase, since to date, you may have been buying down a size of traditional rise pants in order to get a half-reasonable fit.

Wash & Care Instructions

Cold Water Wash, and Tumble Dry Low with no heat setting is recommended.

Cotton shrinks: All cotton products will shrink with heat on washing and drying. Please make sure to follow care label directions exactly to minimize shrinkage on our short men's jeans with high cotton content. If you know you will be washing and/or drying your short men's jeans in warm or hot water (or using any level of heat in a machine dryer), then please consider buying a longer length than you need, by no more than 1 size.

Fabric Information

Medium Blue Rinse: Premium 11 oz Cotton denim w/1% elasthane for comfort and shape retention

Deep Indigo Rinse: Premium 12.5oz 100% cotton Denim

Black Rinse: 98% Cotton with 2% Spandex

Exceptions & Final Sale Items

As we sell a lot of different items, there are a few exceptions to our returns policy and a few special cases to take note of.

Non-US orders:

If you are located outside of the US, please note that we will only receive your return items for refund or store credit (which you may use to place a reorder at your convenience).  Return shipping will be at customer expense (we will not reimburse for the cost of return postage) and we are unable to provide return postage labels for international orders. Because of the high postage costs, and additional complications (such as customs and duties), we are unable to process exchanges for international orders.  Thank you for your understanding.

However, if you have concerns about ordering or would like assistance identifying the best sizes and styles for you to ensure a great fit (with no need for return), please get in touch.

Defective Items:

Our items pass through rigorous quality control procedures prior to shipping out to you, but mistakes (though rare) do happen. Did we send you the wrong item or is there a problem with your order (such as a manufacturing defect or mislabeled item)? Simply select "Incorrect" or "Damaged" items as your reason for return so we can make appropriate arrangements with you.

Items that are Worn/Washed/Tagless/Damaged/Dirty/Stained:

Per our return policy, items received in worn, stained, washed damaged, tagless or in otherwise unsellable condition (that includes any items with lingering pet, tobacco or other smells, or covered with pet dander, other hair or excessive lint) may be, at our sole discretion:

  • Rejected for Return (returned to sender or discarded- at our sole discretion),
  • issued full or partial (minus restock fee) Store Credit,
  • And/Or refunded minus a restocking fee commensurate with the damage or delay.

Dress Shirts:

We get it – dress shirts are tricky. You have to remove them from the packaging in order to try them on, and getting them back in the package if they didn’t fit is a bit of a project. However, if you have to send one back to us, please make every effort to repackage the shirt as it was shipped to you (to the best of your ability) and include all packing materials intact.

For dress shirts out of their original packaging, we can either issue store credit or a refund, minus a re-stocking fee commensurate with the damage (because the truth is, once you’ve opened the package, we probably won’t be able to re-sell the shirt).

Please Note:
We hate restocking fees, too. If we can tell you tried REALLY hard to repackage neatly, we generally waive or reduce any re-stocking fees for shirts, so please do your very best.

Non-Returnable Items

There are a few items on which we cannot offer returns for various reasons. These items are as follows:

Customized Items:

Items that have been personalized for you, including pants and trousers which have been hemmed to your exact specifications (fractional inseams, or inseams shorter than 26″ for short men’s trousers, and shorter than 34″ for tall men’s trousers) cannot be accepted for return.

Final Sale Items:

When we discount items for “final sale” they are sold on the understanding that they are not returnable. This does not mean that every sale or clearance item is ‘final sale’ Our FINAL SALE items are clearly marked as such in the title and product descriptions. Items clearly marked FINAL SALE are generally items that have been deeply discounted or discontinued and are being sold below our cost. Items sold on a final sale basis will not be accepted for a refund, store credit or exchange, for any reason whatsoever.

Hygiene Items:

We cannot accept returns of underwear or swimwear items. This is of course for hygiene reasons as these items cannot be re-sold once they have been sent to a customer.

Holiday Themed:

Finally, any items which are Holiday themed (such as Christmas sweaters, for example) cannot be returned once the Holiday has passed and must be received at least 1 week prior to the Holiday. If timely received, these items can be returned according to the rules of our standard return policy.

Returns During The Holidays

We understand that during the holidays you may be buying gifts and may not be sure about size or whether the person you are buying for will like the item. Plus, many of you like to get an early start on Holiday shopping and we can appreciate that, too! For this reason we have an extra generous returns policy for the Holiday period each year.

For any order placed between October 1st and November 20th, you have 30 days from purchase date to receive a cash refund, but you are welcome to request store credit or an exchange as late as January 5th.  For any order placed on or after November 21st, you have up until the later of January 12 OR 30 days after your purchase to return any of the items purchased for a refund, store credit or exchange. *Bundles and Final Sale Items Excluded from Holiday Return Terms

All of which means you have plenty of time to present your gifts to friends and family and still get a refund, exchange or credit for an item that’s not quite right. For all other terms and conditions, please review full return rules above.

Time to get hip!

I'm older. My sister discovered that I dressed with that thought (I'm older) in mind when I visited her for the first time in decades[?]. On the 5th day of my visit she said, "I need to dress you. It doesn't work to just go baggier!" Okay. Okay. She is my very younger sister, after all! So, I came to I bought slim-fit jeans (with short rises). The first day I wore them, I felt self-conscious and silly--for an hour. And then I felt more confident than in years. These are nice freaking jeans that fit much better than the over-sized baggy things I've been wearing. I used to dress this way in 1970!
Don't get me wrong. I've bought solely from forthefit for many years (I'm not an employee. I'm not paid. I'm just telling the truth). I love their self sizers. I love the "oversized" chinos I've been buying! Forthefit taught me about short rise. I never knew that. These slim-fit jeans make me feel confident. Today, I'm buying slim fit chinos and even more slim-fit jeans. Oh, forthefit, please add more colors of slim fit jeans and chinos.

Wow. You made our day. Thank you for sharing this! Hopefuly you will inspire others to make some bold new choices with their style & mix it up =)

Received my Jack SLIM FIT Denim Jeans, perfect fit.

Received my Jack SLIM FIT Denim Jeans, perfect fit. I wish I could get them in black.

You can! Check out the new black rinse, slim fit style of our Jack short men's jeans

Slim Cut pair fit my husband very well.

Slim Cut pair fit my husband very well. I like the slim cut style on him best. Bought both styles and these are the first jeans that he has ever had that really fit him, and this weekend will be his 64th birthday. In the past, I have always had to shorten jeans or pants for him. And they still wouldn not fit right in the rise. Shortening jeans is not fun! With the fabric being so thick at the bottom of the legs, it was very difficult to shorten them. So, we will be ordering from again.

Thanks! We're glad our short men's jeans worked so well for you in the new slim fit style! Have you tried the black rinse pair?
