Howler Brothers x Chaco Vaquero Board Short - Men's

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.

These are probably my new favorite board shorts! Super rad design and perfect length! According to other reviews they were snug so I ordered a size up which was smart. Even a size up was still a bit tight but once they get wet they expand quite a bit so tie 'em tight!

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.
