Men's Fit Guide
Though each Patagonia® product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, we can generalize our fit descriptions in four ways:
Formfitting: Conforms to the body’s contours.
Slim Fit: Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.
Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body.
These all-purpose shorts have the durability and comfort of our tried-and-true Wavefarer® Board Shorts in an everyday walk-short silhouette; made from quick-drying nylon (38% recycled) with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 50+ UPF sun protection. Fair Trade Certified™ sewing. There are still a few situations where board shorts don’t really fly, and it seems most of them involve the in-laws. Made from the same durable and quick-drying nylon (38% recycled) as our classic board shorts, our Wavefarer® Walk Shorts blend water-friendly performance with an everyday walk-short silhouette. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish, 50+ UPF sun protection and bartacked interior drawcord give them great functionality when you’re surfing, bouldering or back flipping into the lake; classic flat-front chino styling with belt loops saves you from disapproving looks at dinner, while the flat-lying rubber button fly and closure provide long-wearing comfort in any situation. The two front slash pockets and two rear pockets have self-draining mesh pocket bags; the right rear pocket is buttoned, has an internal key loop and is Surf Dry Bag-compatible. Outseam is 20". Fair Trade Certified™ sewing.
