Just don't lasso a manatee.
Cowboys like swimming too, so that's why Howler Brothers designed the Men's Vaquero Board Short. Designed with patterns reminiscent of long cattle drives and quick-drying fabric, the Vaquero is perhaps more appropriate for wrangling waves than bewildered bovine, but that's the point. Made from a synthetic blend, they'll readily transition from water to sand—or cow pasture.

HowlerBrothersxChaco Vaquero Board Short
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 32
High quality shorts. Very comfortable. The material isn't stretchy, but there is some give and it's soft to the touch. I have't used these a ton, but they feel quite durable. My favorite feature is the button on the back pocket, which has the Howler Bro's monkey face on it.
Size-wise, I got 32 (I normally wear 32's in pants/shorts). For these I definitely need a 34 or maybe even a 35. They are also quite short. I measured the inseam at just over 6 inches.
