Find Your Perfect Pair Of Vintage Denim Shorts

Posted on

Finding that perfect pair of vintage denim shorts that fit in all the right places is something we don't want to take you all summer long! Here at Rokit, our vintage shorties are all measured by hand and categorised by waist size - this measurement sometimes doesn't match what the original label says as shrinkage may have occurred through previous washing. It's these little top tips we wanted to share with you to help you choose from our huge vintage selection...

Forget UK Dress Sizes

High street stores generally correspond a size 8 to a waist size 26 and so on. However, the diversity in high street sizing might not always correspond to our sizing methods. We measure the waists of all of our shorts accurately by hand, so we recommend that you use the same method. All you need is a tape measure!

Measure Up!

Make sure you measure the correct part of your waist - Remember that our shorts generally sit higher at the back, and dip slightly at the front. Find the part of your waist where you want the highest part of the waistband to sit at the back, and measure round. See below.

That Extra Half An Inch

If you are in between two waist sizes, we recommend the bigger size. There's nothing worse than shorts that you can't sit down in, and it just means there's more room for pizza!

Be Honest, Girlfriend!

We are all guilty of breathing in when measuring our waists, but true measurements mean that your shorts will look as fab as possible. Don't worry, your secret's safe with us.

One-Of-A-Kind

Our vintage denim shorts are reworked from different styles of jeans, so all fit a little differently. If buying online, look closely at the shape of the shorts to ensure they are the the fit that you want. Pay attention to the difference in size between the waist and the bottom edge. In general, low rise shorts are fairly rectangular, whilst high waisted shorts have a more triangular shape to them. Also, look out for the length between the waistband and the crotch - high waisted styles are typically longer, whilst low rise styles are shorter.

Now there's no excuse not to grab a pair in time for summer!
