Our first shorts made from denim. It’s only taken 5 years!

The first shorts we made were made from moleskin. It’s all we had to use at the time and to be honest we were surprised when people bought them! Moleskin is usually regarded as a winter fabric but we thought we’d just wing it. People liked them then, so let’s get moving again with shorts made from long pants cloth.

It's in the details...

100% BCI Cotton

Raw sanforized denim

Won’t shrink. Indigo will develop contrasting light fades with wear

Woven in the world's most ecologically sensitive denim mill

We source all our denim from Italian textile masters, Candiani. Their approach to production innovation and sustainability is nothing short of exceptional. It’s no wonder they have a world class reputation.

The V6 shorts are made from Candiani selvedge denim and have the highest environmental credentials.

Environmental sustainability is at the forefront of all stages of production of Candiani denim. Using BCI cotton, a microplastics-free dye process, solar power and water recycling to name some of the process used.

Dyeing powered by mushrooms...

Candiani use ‘Easy Fade’ dyeing technology with this denim to get good looking jeans, with clean fade lines when you wash then. This is all achieved quicker than usual using less water and chemicals!

The dyeing process also uses patented techniques including using mushrooms and seaweed instead of chemicals, making these jeans microplastics free.

What is Selvedge?

Selvedge is old-style denim, woven on narrow looms and typically has a more characterful appearance and a higher level of quality than mass-produced denim.

You can see the selvedge (self edged) stripe at the turn up. It’s where during weaving the outside edge of the cloth has been woven together to stop it having a raw edge.

Care Guide

Washing is simple. Wrecking your shorts is really difficult IF you follow our care guide. If you choose not to, you’re on your own.

When you buy any of our denim garments, we’ll throw a copy of our Denim Care booklet in your parcel.

If your booklet goes walkabout, gets eaten by a dog, or stolen as a bookmark, no worries, we’ve published a copy of it online, so no excuses.

    Great looking shorts that fit nice and no doubt will wear well…looking forward to breaking them out once again when we get past the miserable winter. (On checking the shop, surprised any are still around…my advice: snap up a pair, you won’t regret it!)

    I was a bit sceptical about buying denim shorts, but I absolutely love them. It’s October and I’m still wearing them! They look and fit great. Can be worn with virtually anything.

    I got a pair of the shorts and the quality is great. I like the fact they fit like the jeans that I wear so they are nice and comfortable. The length is great and the look good.

    Usual good quality, the jeans from hebtroco are excellent. Good to see shorts with belt loops.
    Sit a bit high on me but that is just my build.

    Been running my shorts in for a few weeks now and, as always, great quality and fit. Just the pair of shorts I was after. Love to see more versions and would definitely be a customer again.
