Governor Shorts


All the same details and fit as our GVNR trousers but with a 13” inside leg.

Made in England from cloth woven in Lancashire. This is a hardwearing 12oz fabric made from 55% linen and 45% cotton.

Bar tacked belt loops are sewn into the waistband for strength, and are big enough for a proper 1.5″ wide belt.

Washable patch with GVNR logo designed by Christopher Kenyon, tattooer at ‘True ‘Til Death’ in Accrington.

GVNR comes to you pre-washed so will not shrink in length. This is a rugged, textured cloth with a similar appearance to a heavy canvas. You will see some “slubs” or thick spots in the weave giving a nicely irregular surface and the cloth will crease like moleskin or denim in the wash. Smoothing out while damp will even this out.

Button fly because a man should be able to take his time and buttons never jam.
