Frequently Asked Questions


So just who is this Surfing Bubba Dude?
He's our mascot. Designed in collaboration with Maui artist Mike Segura, Surfing Bubba Dude symbolizes the Hippie Skivvies attitude. He's ridin' free in his Hippie Skivvies, carefree about life, flashing the peace sign. He's emblazoned on our hats and is optional at no cost on our shirts.

Where did you come up with the idea for Hippie Skivvies?
In 1997, Andy Covell, who was 9 years old at the time, was given a tie-dye kit by his Uncle. During lunch a few days later, Andy said, "Hey, when are we going do my tie-dye kit? I want to tie-dye some underwear, too!" The rest, as they say, is history.

What does "skivvies" mean in the U.S. and elsewhere?
In the U.S., skivvies is an old military term for underwear, so Hippie Skivvies essentially is underwear for free-spirited people. While we've not heard of any other definition for hippies, skivvies means different things in different countries. In the U.K., a skivvy is someone who is undervalued and worked to the bone (almost like being called a slave). In Australia, a skivvie is a turtle-neck shirt. Do you have a different definition of the word? Tell us!

Do I need to wash my Hippie Skivvies separately?
The dyes used are of the highest quality available and are similar to those used on other clothing you wear. Just to be safe, please wash at least once by itself, or only with other items of ours that you may have purchased at the same time, to ensure any remaining dye is washed out. After that, they won't fade significantly or bleed and may be washed along with other clothing without fear.

What size thong/panty/boy-cut is best for me?
Our small equates to a size 5 panty, our medium is like a size 6 and our large would be for a size 7. Our X-small panties and boy-cuts are like a size 4 and are designed for pre-teen girls.

What size camisole is best for me?
Bear in mind that our camisole is meant to fit snugly. Our small camisole would be best for someone on the slim side with an A or B cup. Our medium would apply for a medium sized torso and a B or C cup, while our large is best for someone with a bit more than that. Our X-large would be for those with a larger frame or those more well endowed. Our X-small is sized for pre-teen girls, about ages 9 to 12 (and the straps are 1" shorter).

Why is the fly sewn shut on your boxers?
We had the fly on our boxers sewn shut so they could be worn as shorts if desired.

Are you planning plus items or kid sizes?
We don't really have any plans for plus sizes in most of our items, but we do carry boxers and robes up to size 3X. Any items in size X-small are for pre-teen boys and girls down to about seven or eight years old.

Where and how are Hippie Skivvies made?
Most Hippie Skivvies products are made in Mexico with U.S. materials to our own specifications. We're concerned about factory working conditions so we visit the facility every few months. No one underage works there, the conditions are pleasant and it is well air conditioned. The owner is extremely conscientious about keeping his employees happy and it shows in their attitude. He has some of the best workers in the city and we are proud to use his facility. Some items like our robes and shirts come to us in white from other companies that specialize in those products. All of our dyed clothing products are hand-dyed in California.
