Just when you thought that we had thought of everything, we've taken things a step further and introduced yet another member to the Supertrouser family. A denim version. But in true Cactus form, this isn't any ordinary denim. Made from a tough, Dyneema denim, these pants have potential to become the greatest looking pair of denim trousers you ever put on. Like the Canvas Supertrousers, after about 6 months of hard wear and tear, they will have taken on that feeling of a second skin and look like they were made especially for you.
Because Cactus customers demand more than a pair of jeans to drink a latte in, we needed to find a fabric that could withstand a bit of a thrashing. This is why we went for the Dyneema Denim which is 4x more abrasion resistant than normal cotton denim. The inclusion of high-tenacity nylon fiber helps resist tears, rips and punctures.
These are a different fit to the Canvas Supertrouser pattern and are the result of some serious trials and wear testing to make sure we nailed it. The fit is slim (but not skinny) and has a lower rise and fit more like a jean than a canvas Supertrouser.
So if you're one of those guys who finds buying denim (jeans) a nightmare, look no further - these will tick all of the boxes and fit like nothing else. You can count on Cactus to get it right.

Please Note: Do not shorten (hem) prior to first wash as shrinkage may occur. These are a different fit to the Canvas Supertrousers*
These come hemmed to a standard length – see the 'Sizing' tab above.
If you need them hemmed shorter, we can do this for you. Just send them back to us – after you've washed them – with a note specifying the length you'd like them hemmed to. To work this out, measure your leg inseam – this is from your crotch to the floor, in bare feet. There is a charge for hemming.
Or you can hem them yourself. You do not require a heavy duty sewing machine for our denim, unlike our canvas.

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.
The measurements shown are of the garment itself. Measure around your waistline (top of hips), where trousers sit, keeping the tape comfortably loose.
Measure pants that fit you well. Lay them flat and measure from the crotch to the bottom of the leg hem. If you don't have suitable pants, measure from your crotch to your desired pant leg length.
