Workwear trousers that might be the best trousers on the planet.

Regular price $299.00

Cactus Supertrousers might just be the world’s best general purpose trousers and they’re made right here in NZ. These trousers can handle a shortcut through the gorse, nailing up some framing, or fitting the chains on the access road. On the flip side they are just as sweet for waiting for your fix at the local coffee cart, stylin’ at a BBQ, or sitting in the office dreaming of better things. There are two types of people out there, those who love their Supertrousers, and those who haven’t bought any yet!

If these are a bit baggy for your liking, check out our slim-fit version – they're not your super skinny hipster jean; you can still build a house in them. If you're after some full-featured, work-specific trousers, Trade Supertrousers might be for you. If your legs run hot, check out our Supershorts.

If you are on the taller side, you may need to order our unhemmed Extra Long Supertrousers 

For shorter inseams, add 'Hem Shorter' to your cart and specify a length in centimetres.

Supertrousers come in two fabric options. C-Canvas is the classic, hardwearing Cactus canvas. Premium C-Canvas is newer, just as hard wearing, but with a more comfortable finishing weave, so requires less breaking in time.

If the colour you select has 'Premium' in the name it's the new Premium C-Canvas, if it doesn't have 'Premium' in the name, it's the classic C-Canvas. Easy as.

  • Exclusive 12oz C-Canvas and Premium C-Canvas are super durable and great to wear
  • Made by happy people who’ll be even happier if you buy some
  • Handle tricky manoeuvres with the articulated knee design
  • Casual styling which can handle almost any social situation
  • Clothing related embarrassing situations are minimised by YKK zips (because they’re the best) and bar-tacks at all stress points
  • Construction backed by a lifetime warranty on materials and workpersonship
  • Fabric: C-Canvas or Premium C-Canvas
  • Weight: 780 grams (Medium)

  • 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

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.

  • Custom leg lengths are available from -10cm shorter to +10cm longer.
  • The leg lengths of the standard Supertrousers fit 95% of people just fine, but for those of you who need them longer or shorter we can customise. 
  • If you would like your Supertrousers hemmed to be shorter then you need to add Hem Shorter to this order where you can specify the length. If you want them longer you need to go to Supertrousers Extra Long, where you can select a leg length from the drop-down menu.
  • 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.
