The DIY (dye-it-yourself) short is prepared for dye and ready for you to make it your own. You can tub dye them to match your skates or sneakers, tie-dye them to get a little funky, or plant dye them using foraged plants…the possibilities are endless! 💭 

How to dye

There is no one way to dye your Hammies but most methods involve these three steps:

  1. Scour or pre-wash: Even though your Hammies are brand new, you want the fabric to be clean of oil, dust, and even fingerprints before dying because these can affect how the fabric absorbs dye. You can use a professional textile detergent but any old detergent will do.
  2. Dye: There are many different types of dye and dying techniques. If you're dying for the first time or interested in an easy, inexpensive, and predictable type of dye, we recommend reactive dyes (specifically Procion dyes from Dharma Trading). If you're interested in going deeper, you can try natural/plant dye (a good place to start is with pre-reduced indigo from Dharma Trading). As for techniques, there is tub dye (for solid colors), tie-dye, ice dye, transfer dye, discharge, etc. Most methods require a fixer such as soda ash to fix the color and prevent it from washing out. 
  3. Wash: After you're done dying, it's very important to wash it out so that you don't accidentally dye the rest of your clothes! Most techniques involve rinsing with cool water until the water runs clear and then washing with hot water and detergent by itself (or at the least with very dark colors that won't be affected by the dye that you used). We suggest washing and drying on a hot cycle to shrink them to size.

It isn't difficult or expensive to dye your own Hammies and after you dye your first pair, odds are you will start dying everything in sight! 😸

The DIY shorts will fit about a half size too large before you dye them. See our notes about "sizing" below.

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

The Most Comfortable Shorts Ever

These shorts are so comfy and adorable! I want them in all the colors! The best part is - they don’t stretch out or get baggy.

Moon Over My Hammies

I love ‘em. High quality, tough corduroy. Cute cut and shape. They sit well on a curvy body. They look great with slides and a t-shirt or a blouse and boots. I went right away to order my second pair.

R.G. (Chicago, US)

This is my second time trying Hammies—I first ordered them several years ago when I was heavier (size 40 at that time) and REALLY didn’t like the fit. Decided to try them again now in a size 34 and I absolutely love them this time. I mention all that because I really think these look best on someone with a smaller waist and average to curvy hips/butt. When my waist was closer to my hip size I thought they just looked goofy and kinda dumpy on me.

Love the super high rise, the elastic waist for comfort, and the slight stretch makes them very comfortable to sit and move in. I also like the high quality zipper!


Fit perfect

Most Comfortable Shorts!!!

I now own 4 pairs of Hammies in less than 2 months. I saw them in a shop called Navy Dylan in Warehouse 3540 in Lawai, HI. I can’t remember the last time I wore shorts before buying these.
I am now comfortable wearing shorts again thanks to Hammies.
Living on Kauai you should definitely be wearing shorts with our weather.
Hammies also reminds me of growing up on the OP shorts I used to wear so
Thank You for reminding me of beautiful memories of when I was growing up and going to the beach on the mainland.
Also the customer service for Hammies is 5 🌟’s too.
I look forward to getting more shorts in different colors. ❤️🧡💛💚💜💙
Thank you to the ladies @Navy Dylan & Thank you Hammies for making these amazing, comfortable shorts.
