About Ride or Dye

Amanda of Soie Botanical

Laura La Rue started Ride or Dye in Ojai, California in 2019. She started by tie-dying everything in sight: old t-shirts, stained bedsheets, vintage Levis, etc. What started out as a hobby has become her full-time job. She spends her days at home harvesting plants and making beautifully dyed goods with them. "The beauty of dyeing with plants is that every piece is unique. You never really know what you're gonna get and it's all part of the fun!" You can shop more Ride or Dye goods at rideordyeojai.com and at Canyon Supply in Ojai. 

Care instructions

  • Wash on a cold cycle
  • Use a PH-neutral detergent if possible 
  • Do not hang dry in the sun as it can make the color fade!

Sizing

These shorts didn't shrink as much in the waist as expected, so they will fit 0.5-1.5" bigger than the normal Hammies short. If you have a pair of normal Hammies and there is a little room in them, we suggest sizing down in these shorts.

See our size guide for measurements for the men's and women's shorts.

 

About the Hammies short

The Hammies short is an old short for a new generation. This short style was popularized in the 1970s in Southern California and for a decade it was the staple of skateboarders, surfers, rollerskaters, camp counselors, Tom Selleck, and many more. In the mid-1980s, shorts got longer and pants got baggier and for the proceeding 3 decades, the shorts were forgotten (a period also known as The Shorts Dark Ages). Fast-forward to 2017: Hammies has revived the once forgotten shorts in all of their primary-colored and wide-waled corduroy glory and once again, all was right with the world.

In short, the Hammies short is a homage to a time when shorts were shorter, fuzzier, and more colorful. These are your mom's shorts!
