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

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.
They last yearsssss
I've had 2 pairs that I picked up at a bike show well over 5 years ago that I wear all summer long on the bike and as a mechanic. I've had many other pairs of shorts come and go yet these shorts just keep going and looking like new, rip free and fit perfectly.
Best bike shorts I've ever owned. Seems like you have to pick between pure lycra and baggy cargo shorts. This is the perfect third option. I've used the daily for a month, been washed many times, and they look good as new.
the best i have found anywhere
I've tried and worn out a lot of different bike focused tech shorts. this fabric might be the best so far. it definitely has enough stretch but seems super durable. of course I crashed them and slid across the hard dirt at the jump park the 2nd time I wore them, but you couldn't even tell after I brushed them off. they fit just looser than the prior short versions (which I had to send back - too tight for my thighs). I don't miss the side leg pocket some others have. there is plenty of fabric on the backside that adds comfort on my bike commute (don't wear a chamois) and seems like it will last forever, I have worn holes in many other shorts/pants. the extra zipper pocket seems unnecessary and only adds an extra layer - i'm thinking these may be a bit hot in the heat and humidity of deep summer... but I've worn them now for 2 straight weeks since I got them and i'm not sure i'll ever take them off. around the house, mountain biking, commuting to work, cleaning up my yard, etc. you'll never need to take them off. also I've heard they're 'rona-proof.
