ABOUT CLASSIC FIT

Our legendary M01 Original Fishing Shorts are the genesis of our shorts fit. Built for comfort and movement in mind. The Classic Fit has an elasticated waist and slightly more room in the thighs and hips. A wider leg opening completes our classic silhouette.

 

WHAT SIZE SHOULD I BUY?

Refer to the size chart above to match your body measurements to the proper size. If you’re in-between sizes, you can likely size down if that’s your preference. For example, if you typically wear a size 35, most body types will be able to fit comfortable into a size 34. However, the nature of the elastic waist means that either a size 34 or 36 should fit you great.

My sons have worn them every day since arrival.

According to both my sons, these are the best shorts ever to be made. They’ve worn other name brand athletic/active outdoor shorts, but agree that AFTCO is far superior to any other short.
