Fresh Review: Durable cotton shorts

By Roxy Storm

U.K. cyclist extraordinaire Tim Wiggins recently put the cigarette cut version of our Durable Cotton Shorts to the test. We’re thrilled to share the news that they emerged from the other side of the wringer with flying colors.

To quote Tim’s review, “It seems that Swrve have done it again with the Durable Cotton Cigarette Cut Shorts. They’ve produced a product that looks great both on and off the bike, but also a product that feels great to ride in, and has a significant amount of useful functionality. Built to last, and built to ride; these are sure to become a staple part of my wardrobe for a while to come.”

As a cyclist who racks up a LOT of miles, Tim found the slimmer fit of the cigarette cut shorts to be complimentary to his quads rather than restricting.


“As well as being cut for riding, the Durable Cotton shorts also have a cut that is more suited to cyclists’ physiques than most. These are a slim fitting short, so they look great on skinny riders’ legs. They are also a great length, dropping to just above the knee; long enough to cover those dodgy tan lines, but not so long they catch on your knee caps whilst riding. Perfect.”

Be sure to take a look at Tim’s previous reviews for our Modal Tees, Durable Cotton Trousers,WWR Lightweight Skinny Trousers, and Cordura Jeans.
