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

Great cut and nice material!
These fit really well and they're super comfortable! I bought these after having owned the durable cotton trouser shorts, and I was surprised to find that the rear pockets are more jeans style than the chino style pockets on the trouser shorts. I would have preferred the chino-style pockets and wish the photos would have shown what the pants look like in the rear. Not a huge deal, but I bought these for dressier occasions and the pockets make the pants more casual than I had expected.
the perfect pants don't exi—
what else can i say about these? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ they're incredibly comfortable, durable, and stretchable. they look good enough for a self-conscious dweeb to wear out in public, and are versatile enough to go from work to climbing without having to pack a change of clothes. they make great travel pants if you wanna be comfy but don't wanna wear sweats. the bit of water resistance is nice. i really like the CA grizzly brown color. thanks for another ******, swrve.
finally retiring first pair after 7 years
posting a review update since I'm about to purchase my second pair of durable cotton trousers - the first have served me well since 2014, I've put them through the ringer and they've held up well save for a few loose threads. The fabric has developed an interesting patina - seen against fresh black cordura, they are more of a grey at this point but they catch light in interesting ways. I would continue to wear this pair, but I started wearing them higher and need a 34 inseam. go-to do anything trousers for sure.
Fantastic and Durable
I have two pairs and have worn them everyday for the last 5 years and they are just now starting to wear in a few places. They will probably last even a little longer before they start getting holes. They are super comfortable and look great as well.
The pants are well built and the fabric seems durable with a small amount of stretch. My only gripe is with the inconsistent fit. Ordered a pair with a 32" inseam that fit well through the seat and thigh, but the inseam measured about an inch short (31”). Exchanged for a longer 34” inseam which measured fine, but the crotch gusset was noticeably larger on the second pair. This lead to a much less “slim” cut to the pant, as it falls a bit looser through the thigh and knee. I ultimately needed to have these altered. Decent pants overall, just wish the sizing was more consistent between pairs.
