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.
When selecting the correct size for Hammies, go by your waist measurement. Measure the smallest part of your waist, and then round down to the nearest number. For example, my waist is 31" but the size 30 fits perfectly.
