GENERAL NOTES ON FIT

for swrve bottoms, we strive to be as true to size as possible. most other companies offer vanity sizing, but with us, a 32 means the waist circumference of the garment is 32". we update our size guides to provide the current sizing per garment frequently.
if you have trousers of which you like the fit, measure the waist and that is the swrve size! to measure the waist, lay them flat and make sure the front and back of the waistband lay evenly across each other, then measure from side to side (fold to fold on the inside), multiply by 2 (there are 2 layers of fabric) and voilà, you’ve got your measurement.

for swrve tops, please note our fit is a slimmer European fit similar to American Apparel's fit

FREE Priority USPS shipping with your $135 order, or $5 shipping under $135.

for other options, shipping cost is determined by the package weight and destination.

for domestic (US) customers USPS Priority is usually the fastest, least expensive option. to get an accurate shipping cost, please add the items to your cart and enter your mailing address at check out, the system will give you an estimate for shipping with various USPS and UPS options.

It will arrive at your doorstep, regardless of where you are in the world, within 5 business days, and you get to track it as it makes its way to you. USPS Priority and First Class Mail may be a bit less expensive, but they have a higher tendency to lose packages. Please note that we are NOT responsible for lost packages! UPS rates tend to be rather exorbitant and you may be faced with a custom brokerage fee NOT included in the shipping rate.

international customers: please note that you may be charged additional customs duty fees at delivery NOT included in the shipping rate. these fees vary widely from country to country and there is nothing we can do to prevent them.

attention Canadian customers! our system will offer you UPS as a shipping option that may seem attractive, but we suggest NOT using UPS for orders going to Canada as they sometimes present you with a separate and additional customs clearance bill (on top of the customs duty) for $50 or more. eek!

Awesome shorts!!

Love these transverse and durable cotton shorts, tough as nails, they fit perfect, and look great, the only thing I would change going forward would be the mesh pockets-so far they hold up but just having keys in my pocket makes me nervous, I much rather deal w solid pockets in all my shorts no matter what- makes me feel more confident since I constantly have them filled w stuff, thank you swrve!!!

Great for biking

This is my fourth pair of the shorts. They fit pretty tight. I wear 32 in other clothes, but need a 33 for these. They are snug, but flex a bit. Nice shape.

My current favorite pair of shorts

They start out pretty stiff but with repeated wear, they have become the most comfortable pair of shorts I own. They're tough, too - perfect for cycling and commuting! Pockets are great and I know they'll last me for years to come.

Bullet Proof

They’re expensive upfront, but considering how long they last and the punishment hey withstand, they are worth every penny and more.

Great short with one issue.

There is a lot to like about these shorts. Fit, materials, comfort all good. I use them for mountain biking cause i hate most actual mountain bike gear, and they’ve been great for it. I have one big gripe. The front pockets. The opening is just way too small. I struggle to even get my hand in there. If you need to pull your phone out of your ocket while riding to check a map or take a pic, good luck. Probably gonna have to stop to get it out. I do t know if this is just because I am a size 28 waist, maybe the opening is larger and more useful in larger sizes, but yea. Really wish the pockets were easier to us. Also wish they were a little more to the side. Phone just sits right in the front of your thigh while riding. That or if they had a slit pocket on the side, would also be nice. It’s still a good product, the pockets are just the only thing that’s keeping me from buying several pairs and having them be my go to.
