Product: .PHAT SHORTS INFORMATION ONLY - NOT FOR PURCHASE are being added to cart ...


With the Fusion Backpack strapped on, every trek is an adventure - even a bus ride to work. That's partly because two large zippered compartments store everything you need, while a front zippered pocket and side mesh pouches are perfect for stashing those little extras, in case you change your mind and take the day off.

We can make phat short version of most phat pant designs you see on our site. Email us if you would like one.

Phat shorts are handmade to order with reflective material sewn on. We have some delay at the moment & designs can only be delivered in approximately between 7 and 8 weeks from the date we receive order with all correct details. If we are creating a design brought in by you or you are modifying one of our designs delivery can take a week longer.

Pick one of our great Phat pant desigsn for us to create your Phat shorts. Phat shorts are usually made of denim but can also be made of cotton. Phat shorts are fitted at the waist and wider in the leg.

Measuring yourself. Measure your waist, inner and outer leg and also the thigh using template provided as image. Measure from a good fitting pair laying it flat on the ground. Measure from top of waist band left to right. Multiply this by two and add 2.54 inches or 6.4 centimetres to the waist measurement to get the actual circumference. Example: you got 16 inches across the waist ( lying your pair of shorts ) measuring from a pant. Your actual waist is 16 X 2 + 2.54 = 34.54 inches. Round it to up 35 inches. With centimetres add 6.4 instead of 2.54 after multiplying across measurements by 2.

From body Wrap tape measure around waist where you want shorts to sit breathing in. If you are in doubt add half an inch or 1.5cm We adjust crotch, thigh and inner leg measurements to create the baggy fit. Waist and length measurements must be accurate. We will make the waist and length of your shorts exactly what you send us. We do not adjust these two measurements. Wear shoes when you measure yourself for length so you get the required length with shoes on. Crotch - The default crotch measurement for men’s shorts is 12 inches and for women, 10 inches. If you would like it to be smaller to make it look more flattering instruct through order comment box or in an email. Thigh - Wrap the tape measure around one leg closest to the crotch area to arrive at the thigh measurement. We adjust to this to make it baggy so do not add any inches or centimetres to what you send us. Inseam - Crotch to bottom of hem with shoes on. Max length of phat pants you can order is 25". If length required is more than 25" the cost of your phat shots will be same as a pair of phats. Contact us if if you need it any longer so we can create a purchase link for you.

Please note we do have kids sizes. Waist sizes of 28 inches or less with lengths of under 36 inches are considered kids’ sizes. Please email us for kids’ rates for the designs that are not included in the kids’ shorts category.
