Your favourite jeans size is always a good guide.

Measure around your natural waistline, mid way between your belly button and bottom of your rib cage. Keep the tape comfortably loose, level and breathe out.

Measure from the top of your inside leg at crotch point, down to your anklebone. You may need someone to hold the tape at your anklebone. They could hold it at your crotch... that's up to you, and them.

How do they wear?

I love the style and the fit. But I've worn (3 hour ride) and washed just once – and there are already visible wear marks on the seat (obviously where I was sititng on the saddle). I'll monitor, but I'm worried they won't last so long.

Thank you for your feedback and for bringing this issue to our attention, David. We're sorry to hear about the wear marks. This isn't something we've encountered before with our products, so please do monitor the situation, and if you encounter any more issues, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

Best wishes,

Loose button

Good fit, robust shorts. Good for all day wear. The thicker fabric gives a smart unwrinkled look. But after just one day of wear the button is hanging by a thread. I bought a pair of Vulpine shorts a couple of years ago and same problem. How can this not be fixed?

Thank you for your review, Adam. We appreciate the positive feedback! Regarding the loose button, please rest assured that the issue has been addressed and any rain shorts produced from this point onwards should not suffer from the same issue. While we have received a few reports of this issue recently, it does not appear to be consistent across all units we are holding stock of.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and encourage you to reach out directly if you have any questions or would like to discuss this matter further.

Best wishes,
The Vulpine Team
