    What are 5 inch shorts?

    5” shorts have an in-seam of 5 inches, which is where the name comes from. This makes them a relatively short-short as they sit around the mid thigh. They are a super casual looking short that can be worn from an intense workout to running daily errands, and their length also makes them great for showing off your leg day gains. Some even call them hoochie daddy shorts.

    What is the difference between 5”, 7” shorts and 3” shorts?

    5 inch shorts have an in-seam that is 2 inches shorter than 7 inch shorts, so where 7” shorts usually sit just above the knee, 5 inch shorts sit around the mid-thigh. Alternatively, 3” shorts have an in-seam that is shorter than 5” shorts, so they usually sit on the upper thigh. Which one you choose to wear is all down to what makes you feel most comfortable and confident.

    What to wear with 5” shorts.

    Whether you’re running, lifting or enjoying a rest day, our 5 inch shorts always pair perfectly with a t-shirt and a hoodie over the top. During those sweaty workouts, you might opt for a stringer or tank to keep you cool.
