Supershorts Mens

Probably the toughest most stylish shorts on the planet.

Regular price $219.00

Supershorts - our original “free standing” shorts. Supershorts are constructed with our tough, comfortable C-Canvas. Not the cheapest material in the world but we’re yet to find a better material – its combination of durability and breathable comfort is what makes these shorts possible.

Antelope, Black and Olive are all made from our new Premium C-Canvas, a durabe 12oz canvas with a softer finish. The Gingernut Supershorts are made from our classic hard-feel 12oz C-Canvas. 

These will end up being possibly the most comfortable shorts you own - and they’ll stay that way for a long, long time; truly shorts that wear in, not out. If you need proof of the comfort and durability, James chose them for a 18,000km bicycle ride around the globe. We’ve got them framed up on the wall of fame here at Cactus HQ. Think a lighter weight pair might suit you better? Go and visit our SOS Supershorts. Don’t want to inflict your lower legs on innocent bystanders? Try our Supertrousers. Proudly made in NZ.

  • Weight: 530grams
  • Fabric: C-Canvas or Premium C-Canvas
  • Essentially, Canvas Supertrousers and Supershorts require a bit of a wear-in period to soften the fabric.
  • The first three or so washes should be done by hand, then you should be right to machine wash.
  • Use cold water with a mild powder detergent, rinse thoroughly, very gentle or no spin and line-dry.
  • Do not iron, dry clean, spin-dry or use bleach.
  • When new, the stiffness of the fabric means it creases in points rather than soft folds - washing them in an aggressive or hot machine can cause damage on the crease points.
  • Our canvas also has a waterproofing agent which, if washed in an aggressive or hot machine, can shift and discolour. This will appear as white lines which cannot be removed.
  • Washing inside out will minimise lighter coloured creases on the outside of the fabric, but won’t remove stains quite as well.
  • Drip dry without creases (it won't take long as the polyester in the fabric doesn't hold much water)
  • Close zips while washing (they'll last longer)
  • Note that all the colours will lighten with use and washing as the natural cotton content of the fabric won't take a dye fixative in the same way as a 100% synthetic fabric.
  • If you get attacked by a pig and the fabric gets holed while saving your reproductive potential send them back and we'll patch ‘em for a small fee
  • If you are still not sure, give us a call or flick us an email

Measurements
Please note that the measurements are of the actual garment size so this means that when you measure yourself you'll be wanting a size that measures a bit bigger than your body.

Waist
Measure around your waistline, keeping the tape comfortably loose.

 

  • The leg lengths of the standard Supershorts fit 95% of people just fine, but for those of you who need them shorter we can customise. 
  • If you would like your Supershorts hemmed to be shorter then you need to add Hem Shorter to this order where you can specify the length. 
  • Please note that custom length shorts and trousers cannot be returned so please choose and measure carefully - call or email us if you are not sure.
