  • Strong points


    - These shorts are made from recycled plastic bottles. The use of recycled materials reduces the need for virgin resources to be consumed and saves useful items from ending up in landfill.

    - Printed in the UK using water based inks.

    Areas for development


    The shorts are made in Portugal. Whilst this means the factory comes under EU legislation the factory does not have any stand-out social aspects. It is a ‘regular factory’.  

  • 100% recycled & recyclable sueded polyester
    • Riz's Blighty short is cut just above the knee and sits on the hips. It has no side seams which allows more movement and fits a greater variety of body shapes, including women's.


      When was the last time you measured your waist? We know it's not something guys generally do but your jean size is NOT your short size. Jeans often measure 2 inches larger than they say. 

      To ensure you get the RIGHT SIZE FIRST TIME, we recommend you measure your natural waist. 

      Riz shorts measure just slightly larger than waist size for comfort.
