An iconic and classic design perfected over 55 years In 1961, beach mom Carrie Birdwell Mann transformed her small Southern California home into a sewing room and store, launching what would become Birdwell Beach Britches with one simple item: a pair of hand-sewn, double-layer nylon board shorts. It was one of the first California businesses specializing in surf wear, making her living room one of the earliest surf shops. Her first employees were her husband and son, and her first customers were lifeguards in Newport Beach. In 2014, thousands of britches, waves, and stories later, the Birdwells entrusted us with keeping their family tradition alive and kicking. We no longer sell out of Mrs. Birdwell's living room, but our Santa Ana factory is still a place for families to gather. Sons stop in to buy shorts for the fathers who introduced them to the brand. Mothers bring their budding watermen and women to buy their very first pair of "Birdies." We share the same attention to detail and commitment to quality craftsmanship as Mrs. Birdwell set forth so long ago. That's why every pair of our board shorts is still built by hand, the way they always have been - some by seamstresses that have worked with us for over 40 years. And that's why we guarantee we'll repair any defects at no cost until the fabric won't hold a stitch. "Quality is Our Gimmick" is more than our slogan, it's a commitment we honor with every product we build. Buy less stuff, by buying better stuff.
