Our Stand Up Shorts® have been around nearly as long as Patagonia itself, and the fit has essentially remained unchanged. They’re typically worn high on the waist and fit a bit more snug than our other shorts. If you want your Stand Up Shorts to fit like our other shorts, we recommend going one waist size larger than you normally order.
In 1996, with an increased awareness of the dangers of pesticide use and synthetic fertilizers in growing conventional cotton, we began the exclusive use of organically grown cotton in all of our cotton products.
The quality of organic cotton is equal to or better than conventionally grown cotton, yet organically grown methods support biodiversity and healthy ecosystems, improve the quality of soil and often use less water. Growing organically takes more time, requires more knowledge and skill, and, for now, costs more. But it’s worth it.
To ensure we are buying cotton that is organic as defined by the USDA’s National Organic Program, we require numerous certificates issued by an accredited third-party certification body for every step of the supply chain, from farm to factories.
