Grey marl



These were the problems you'd had with your chill-out shorts in the past.


They lost their shape


They were way too baggy


They were either too long or too short


The pockets weren’t practical

Let’s keep this short

Short but solid

We spend a lot of time making summer gear that’s seriously lightweight, but on this occasion, we bulked up. Sweat shorts need to be weighty. That soft but chunky material’s where their magical, comforting powers lie. We went for some seriously substantial 380g/m2, 100% organic cotton jersey made by the jersey masters at Eigui, in Portugal.

A summer deep cut

Go tiny with comfy shorts and you’ll look like you’re en route to cheerleading try-outs. Go knee-length and it’s all a bit rollies at the local skatepark. The trick to making a pair of sweat shorts that break the mould is nailing the cut. The Easy Shorts sit tidily at mid-thigh. For the discerning shorts-heads out there, the grail’s arrived.

Brushing up on comfort

That cut’s not just for looks, by the way. The studied length and slightly tailored shape allow for ease of movement. And, to make sure your thighs stay happy all summer long, we had the reverse brushed so that it’s nice and soft. No hot-weather chaffing here.

Guilty pleasures, without the guilt

Sweat shorts have been hidden away in the home for too long: snuggled into for Sunday hangovers with a Match of the Day replay. We’re here to take the guilt out of these once-guilty pleasures. We’ve all got a pair, let’s start to enjoy them. These may not be wedding approved, but they’ll do for anything less fancy than that.

We didn’t get the memo

We don’t know exactly when it happened, but it seems a memo was fired off 600-odd years ago telling all shorts-makers that pockets weren’t a big deal in summer. Thanks, whoever sent it. You know the deal: you sit down in your shorts and £4.60 in small change slithers out your shorts, pings off your seat and onto the floor. Followed by your phone and keys. We’ve put paid to that with deep pockets that’ll actually keep your stuff on hand.

Hands-free shorts

Even the top-end materials and tidy cut on these could be undermined if you had to yank them up every ten steps. It’s not a good look. So we went with a sturdy 100% cotton drawcord. It’s silver-tipped to avoid fraying your patience down the line. No belt needed here - which is lucky, because that would look odd.

In it for the long haul

We get it, you’re hard-pressed to trust a pair of comfy shorts to keep their shape after dealing with years of wobbly, warping, ill-made jersey cut-offs. But that heavyweight cotton, our usual attention to detail, plus the expertise of the chaps at Eigui means that these don’t just arrive looking tidy, they stay that way.

Stand fast colours

We kept things simple with colours: navy blue - of course, dark green, black and a mid-grey marl. No tiger stripes this time round, these shorts’ll pair up easily with everything from tees to socks to button-ups. And — because we care about longevity — we made sure the dyes aren’t about to do a runner.

Free the Sweat Shorts!

So there you have it. A pair of easygoing sweat shorts that you can wear outdoors, that are expertly cut to look the part, designed to last, and that you can pair with anything (except a belt, please don’t try that). All the pleasure, none of the guilt. Consider sweat shorts reinvented. All hail the Easy Shorts.
