Full Product Description

Short Men's Open-Bottom, SLIM FIT Jersey Athletic Pants- FIT for men up to 5'9"

Subtle, tonal 1" Embroidered 'ForTheFit' Logo at thigh

Short Men's SLIM Athletic Pants:  Sweatpants designed for men up to 5'9".

FORtheFIT's SLIM Fit jersey joggers feature a slim, tailored fit through the seat, thighs and legs, and sit just below the natural waist, for a clean, modern look. The super soft cotton jersey ensures the comfy 'sweatpant' feel you know and love, but the midweight jersey is light enough for year-round enjoyment. 

Optimize your Workout (or comfy Work-from-Home look) with athletic pants that FIT you best - so you can worry about the task at hand (not your too-long workout gear!).  Designed with a more modern aesthetic, our SLIM sweats are tailored specifically for men under 5'9", meant to sit just below the natural waist of a man with a true, short rise.  Short Men's Rise means the correct amount of room from crotch to waist, to FIT shorter men best - no more bunching, sagging or uncormfortable extra material. 

Plus, we offer a wide range of short inseam lengths:  25" (2X-Short), 26/27″ (X-Short) to 28/29″ (Short).

EveryBODY is different- slim, stout or somewhere in the middle - so we offer a wide range of waist sizes from S to 2XL to FIT you.  An elastic waist with inside drawstring further ensures a secure and customized FIT.

FORtheFIT Slim Fit joggers feature an Open-Bottom hem (for a more modern look).  Also, side pockets are a convenient feature (extra storage, keys, wallet, etc).  A single back pocket with velcro closure offers a secure spot for valuables.  Yep- we've thought of everything, just for YOU.

Premium Materials:  enjoy Comfort and Durability. Our cotton jersey sweatpants are made of eight ounce cotton jersey, and the premium fabric makes all the difference – they're light enough for year-round comfort, hefty enough to be durable, and ring spun for soothing softness, great when you're working out (or just hanging out!). It's easy enough to come up with reasons to skip a workout...not having the right, comfortable, well-fitting workout gear is no longer one of them. #SorryNotSorry

Sizing Information / Size Charts

Size Charts will help you identify the perfect FIT for YOU in our Short Men's Sweatpants. For your actual waist size, we recommend measuring at the natural waist with a soft tape measure. For athletic pants, it may also be okay to simply select the same size you usually order in similar, elastic waist items, such as athleticwear, boxers, lounge or swimwear.

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

GARMENT SIZE = Your Waist Measures...

Extra-Small (XS) = < 28"

Small (S) = 28" - 31.2"

Medium (M) = 31.3" - 35.2"

Large (L) = 35.3" - 39.2"

Extra-Large (XL) = 39.3"- 43.2"

2X-Large (2XL)t =43.2" - 47"

INSEAM LENGTH = Inches/ Suggested Height

2X-Short (2XSH) = 25" / up to 5'5"

Extra-Short (XSH) = 26-27.5" / 5'5.5" to 5'7"

Short (SH) = 28-29.5"/ 5'7.5"and taller

Pro Tip: If you are new to FORtheFIT, when ordering SLIM styles, just order your normal inseam. . However, if you typically buy our RELAXED or Classic Fit styles,  consider ordering 1 length longer than you normally order in those relaxed styles, to account for the slightly shorter rise and more tailored seat. 

If you have concerns about shrinkage, please read care instructions from the tab below

For additional help with sizing or HOW to take your measurements, please check out our Short Men's Sizing Information and Style Guide

Please Note: EveryBODY is different. The suggested heights are just a rough guideline based on our experience and data, but our short men's sweatpants inseams are pretty accurate. So, order the inseam closest to what you normally wear. Inseam is measured from the crotch seam to the hem of your short men's sweatpants.

Also, our short men's sweatpants are double pre-shrunk prior to manufacturing, but they also feature a high cotton content for comfort and softness. Read the "Wash & Care" Instructions tab below for our care guidelines for cotton products such as these short men's sweatpants. Garments most prone to shrinkage will arrive on the longer end of the "Garment Length" spectrum provided in the chart above to ensure best fit over time.

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 sweatpants with a cotton content. If you know you will be washing and/or drying your short men's sweatpants 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. (Ie. If you choose to size down in short men's sweatpants because of the relaxed fit to a 27, when you normally wear 29- go ahead and order that 29 if you think you will be washing or drying with heat).

Fabric Information

All-Season, Premium 8oz Ring-Spun Cotton Jersey - this is all season fabric (much like a premium t-shirt fabric, but heavier).

Solid Colors are 100% Cotton

Heathered Colors are 70/30 Cotton/Poly Blend

Please note: If you are looking for traditional sweatpant material, check out our FLEECE products instead)

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.

Discontinued Items:

When we discount items scheduled to be discontinued, they are sold on the understanding that returns on these items are limited.  DISCONTINUED items are clearly marked as such in the title and product descriptions, and typically end in a .44 price. Items clearly marked DISCONTINUED are generally items that have been deeply discounted or discontinued and are being sold below our cost. Items sold on a Discontinued Only basis are accepted for store credit only, MINUS a $5 restock fee. Store credits cannot later be refund or turned to cash - they are final. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy. Discontinued items are different than items marked "FINAL SALE" - for final sale terms, please read on below.  

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, and typically end in a .88 price. 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 18th, 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 19th, you have up until the later of January 5th 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.

Mens work out pants

Great pants in tall size . Liked the inside draw string and they are a nice thickness. Good quality.

Thank you for your review of our Tall Men's Slim Fit Athletic Pants! We are glad to hear that you found both a great fit and quality in the materials. We take pride in providing high quality products for our customers. Thank you for choosing FORtheFIT!

Michael Sklaroff (New York, United States)
Great fit and service

The pants fit very well and looked good to boot. I wanted them for doing some stretching at home and also to be able to take a short walk afterwards. There was an unusual problem, though - a missing drawstring. Customer service said it was the first time they'd heard of or seen (I sent a photo) of this happening, but they issued me a store credit for the full price of the pants. This was generous of them, and I'll certainly shop here first when looking shopping for clothing.

Thank you for the feedback! We're glad to hear that you're happy with the pants and appreciate the customer service's willingness to help. We hope you'll continue to shop with us and recommend us to your friends.

I'm glad to hear that the Tall Men's Slim Fit Athletic Pants are working well for you. They're a great choice for a versatile and comfortable pant in tall men's sizes

Betty P.
Perfect fit

I bought these for my son & he loves them. It has always been difficult to get pants short enough & look great!

Thanks so much for the great feedback about our short men's sweatpants! I'm so glad he loved the pants FIT

Pamela D.
Slim fit

Waist ran small, need to exchange my order for large instead of medium

thanks for the feedback - if you ever have questions about size or fit prior to purchase, please feel free to reach out via chat or email, or check out the on page size charts.

love the FIT & they wear really well over time

The slim fit was too tight for my tall and skinny, 6ft 11" 190 lbs - he prefers the relaxed fit. But, we've been purchasing these jersey pants for him several years now since he was 6 foot 2 and growing! He loves them and they wear so well. Hold up to multiple washings. Give them a 5 star plus

Wow! Thanks - you made our day!
