Trade Supershorts Mens

Probably the toughest shorts on the planet.

Regular price $299.00

The Trade Supershorts are a true, fully featured work short for those who's work demands it. We've taken the Trade Supertrousers kept all the best bits and removed everything below the knee. Your essentials are all close at hand with dedicated pockets for a cellphone, ruler, and punches or measuring tape and a reinforced hammer loop that stands out for easy use. The large main pockets at the waist are external so the contents don’t get in the way so much when you crouch down. Those pockets are tough enough for a handful of nails or screws occasionally, but we’ve tried crouching down with screws in our pockets and it isn’t that pleasant. Two full size pockets at the back give you a place for the “can you just pick some stuff up from the supermarket on your way home” shopping list. The belt loops are wide enough to take a full width equipment belt.

Antelope, Black and Olive are all made from our new Ultra C-Canvas. The Gingernut Trade Supershorts are made from our classic C-Canvas. 

Need tool carrying capacity but don’t think people want to see your legs? Our Trade Supertrousers and Trade Plus Supertrousers are for you. Don’t get to use a hammer much at work but love our shorts? Have a look at our Supershorts. 

  • Super durable and highly wearable C-Canvas or Ultra C-Canvas
  • Cellphone pocket (fits an Iphone 7+ and a Galaxy Note S7)
  • Two hammer loops for when it’s hammer time
  • Ruler and measure pockets help you only cut once
  • Roomy external main pockets for durability and easy access
  • Wide belt loops for utility belts
  • Construction backed by a lifetime warranty on materials and workmanship
  • Weight: 610 grams (Large)
  • Fabric: Ultra C-Canvas – durable, hard-wearing exclusive proofed 12oz canvas with a stiffer finish.
  • 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

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.

Measure around your waistline, keeping the tape comfortably loose.


  • The leg lengths of the standard Trade Supershorts fit 95% of people just fine, but for those of you who need them shorter we can customise. 
  • If you would like your Trade 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.
