To find your size, measure the circumference of your waist at bellybutton height (NOT the thinnest part) following the diagram in the image gallery above.

The hip measurement of your shorts will be 9-11 inches larger than the waist size, and the rise of these shorts will be between 10 and 13 inches.

For added accuracy, we also STRONGLY recommend that you provide us with the following measurements and information when you purchase:

1) Waist at thinnest part
2) Waist at bellybutton height
3) Hips at widest part (around your bum)
4) Height
5) Usual clothing size (e.g. size 6, 8, 10 etc.)

These will further help us to determine which size will fit you the best. These can either be written in the 'note to seller' box when you check out, or in an Etsy message to us before or after you purchase.

We do not generally cut shorts "cheeky", so they will cover everything up in the back. However, if you'd prefer a specific length measurement instead of our standard, you may also request this in an order note or message.

PLEASE NOTE: Vintage shorts are sized by their physical waist measurement. Most state their size in the labeling (e.g. W26), but if this is not visible or is incorrect, the size is determined by measuring the waist of the shorts in inches. Therefore, the most accurate way to find your size is to take measurements. Do not fully rely on estimated US, UK, EU and MODERN conversion sizes, as these are not 100% accurate. The waist sizes of these shorts are not the same as modern jean sizes.


If you select 'LEVI' from the menu above, you will receive Levi brand denim. If you select 'OTHER BRAND', you will receive another brand of vintage denim.

We ensure all brands of denim we use for your shorts are of the same high quality, you will not sacrifice quality by not choosing Levi!

Other brands include (but are not limited to) Lee, Arizona, Wrangler, Savvy, Fishbone, Bongo, Aztec, Calvin Klein, Mavi, Lois and Chopper. We mostly use Levi styles 501, 550, 569, 525, and 901, but we may occasionally use another. Your shorts may have either a button or zip fly, we can try to accommodate specific requests but cannot guarantee which you will receive.


All items are made especially for you after your order has been placed; if you would like to leave any particular distressing instructions, length cutting instructions etc., this can be noted in the white note box when you checkout, or simply send me a message after your purchase.


All items are made to order from different pairs of vintage jeans, so you will not receive the exact pairs pictured. The brand, colour and style may vary very slightly. To ensure you are happy with the amount of variation that can occur, ensure that you look through all images in the image gallery above, and check our Instagram page to see what other customers have received.


We're all about breathing new life into vintage abandoned denim here at Hanmattan! All of our shorts are reworked by hand from unique pairs of vintage jeans. Vintage denim is notorious for it's high quality, beautful faded washes and worn in comfort. Because the denim is 10+ years old, you can expect some signs of wear such as fading, some natural distressing and fraying. We do ensure that all items are 100% wearable, so will ensure to repair any distressing or holes that are in awkward places!

Note about leather labels: We understand that a lot of customers purchase Levi's because of the iconic leather tag/label at the back. However, these are not designed to last and therefore will not be in perfect condition. It is quite typical for the leather tags to be faded, ripped, scratched and quite simply very worn. If the leather tag is very important to you, please ensure that you inquire about this BEFORE you purchase, so that we can make sure that we either have stock that suits your needs, or can replace the label for you.


Generally, all orders will take 1-6 working days (Mon-Fri) to be made and dispatched.
