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!

  • 🌱 Stretch corduroy (98% cotton, 2% elastic)
  • 📏 2" inseam
  • 🤸‍♂️ Elastic waist
  • 💎 Copper snap


Hammies sizing is based on US pants sizing (size 28 means 28-inch waist), so if you wear a size 28 in jeans, then you're a size 28 in Hammies. If you don't know your waist size, measure the waist of your favorite jeans in inches and multiply that by 2 (14" across x 2 = 28"). Keep in mind that Hammies have a high rise and sit around your belly button, so if your favorite jeans are not high-rise, you may want to adjust for that. If you're in between sizes, we suggest sizing down.

Amazing. Fits a little big after wearing.

These are exactly like the Op cord shorts I grew up wearing. I love these. So flattering. Not sure why all shorts aren’t like this again. One reviewer said they were super small and needed to size up twice. I would not do that. Hammies says if you’re in between sizes to size down. I agree. I’m fairly slim about 123 and 5’7” and the 28s are probably a little baggy in the bag. They stretch a little. I’m going to try a 26 as soon as they’re back in stock. I bought two already. I’m thinking at some point these will replace all my shorts 💗

The best

These shorts are the cutest and the most comfy. They fit great and are every thing I’ve ever wanted when it comes to a style of short. I had a baby 2 months ago but these shorts are still incredibly flattering even though my body isn’t where I want it to be. Bought two pairs and already can’t wait to buy more


I can never find shorts that fit my figure right and these are TO DIE FOR!! Super excited to wear them out this summer:)

Size up

These are super cute and quality is great. The sizing was surprisingly small. I’m usually a size 4, so I ordered a 26. It’s tiny. I’m going to return and go up two sizes since I’m not even sure going up one would be enough.


Love these shorts! Super comfortable with the elastic waistband and the corduroy fabric is really soft. I sized down from my regular pant size and they fit perfectly. Comfy enough for an entire day at Disneyland, too.
