Having Board Shorts Tailored

Has anyone taken a regular pair of board shorts to a tailor shop to get the slits put in the sides of them?

Save yourself the effort and just buy "fight" shorts Tons of brands to choose from. Go with the less known brands to get better prices

Re: Having Board Shorts Tailored

Old school it and just take a pair of scissors and cut. You could take a needle and thread and just sew around and around at the top of the cut/split to keep it from growing (like stop drilling cracks).

If you're worried about doing this to a pair of $60 workout shorts ...... then you're paying too much for your shorts (both shorts to workout in and buying something that isn't exactly what you want).
However, if your shorts aren't $60 and more like $20 ...... then having them tailored is a little crazy a that price point too

Re: Having Board Shorts Tailored

I buy last year's model board shorts form Marshall's/TJ Max and make sure I buy pairs that are 2-way or 4-way flex (stretchy, not firm nylon). This is working out great for me. Sweet shorts that work, look good, and cost no more than $20!
