Shorter board shorts?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Do you know good and current brands that are selling them (preferably an online store) modern fit and cut a little higher board shorts?

Thanks.

Does anyone know who makes low hightops?

There was a recent thread on this, but it quickly turned to skin tight speedo shorts. Check out Birdwell and Lightning Bolt.

Lightning Bolt makes some awesome board shorts. Also check out Saturdays NYC. They sell Lightning Bolt and also have their own brand (J.Crew is also selling Saturdays' in house brand now). If you are out in LA, you can swing by Lightning Bolt's only flagship store in Venice, they are super cool.

You are an idiot. His question was legitimate.

Walked through Bloomingdales the other day and saw a bunch. Have a look:

LOL +1 on birdwell. volcom makes a few. just a little bit shorter. buttons instead of laces. mine's a plain midnight blue with some star moon pattern. it's my fave pair after ditching all the quicksilver/ billabong shit.

Birdwells are the standard but they're definitely anti-fit. The great thing about them is that they're pretty much customizable and you won't see yourself coming and going.

I like the ones from Saturdays; not sure who makes them. Also Katin has made some shorter ones. I know that Quiksilver has reissued some of the 80s style nut-huggers, too.

I surf so I can't comment on nonfunctional brands. I go for a 21" outseam length, but that's purely a function decision.

Onia is another good brand. The length is exactly what I wanted. Not as nice as OB, but half the price. Try them on or size down, however. Made in the USA w/ Japanese fabric.

I actually really like J.Crew's 7in board short. They hit a couple inches above my knee which I think is perfect. You can also check out: Orlebar Brown, Parke and Ronen, Original Penguin and Sundek.
