Men's Fixed / Non-Elastic Waist Styles
Our board shorts are sized such that the size is the actual circumference of the waistband. For example, a "SZ 38" will have a waistband that measures 38" like in the photo below. In this example, you may have 38's in your closet that measure 40" in circumference (when measured like in the photo). Therefore, we recommend measuring your best fitting shorts/pants and ordering the corresponding size from us (in inches) as compared to ordering from the size tag sewn into your favorites. 
For example, a SZ 38 (measured in the photo above) in either Grizzo Brand or Xelos Brand will have a waistband with an actual 38" circumference (19" flat X 2 = 38")
