Birdwell’s original style, updated with a modern fit and conveniences.
You can’t argue with a classic, but you can make it even better. We get requests for our original board shorts styles every day, so we looked back to our archives to craft a pair of 305s, our founder Carrie Birdwell Mann’s original design, that would live up to modern demands. A timeless style with a classic 1” waistband and short length, the 305 brings the best of the golden age into today.
Just like way back when, each pair of our 305 LE Board Shorts is hand cut from our proprietary SurfNyl and sewn by expert craftspeople in Santa Ana, California. With an updated velcro fly for easy on/off, a tab closure for an adjustable fit, and a contrast lining, it’s safe to say we expect these to gain a cult following of their own.
