  • 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 Burgh short is mid thigh length and sits on the hips. It's a semi slim fit, with an 'old school' feel. Riz told us, “Our aim with a slightly more tailored cut is to create a transitional short that exceeds in and out of the water.”


      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.
