Our first ever pair of shorts is here!  And as you would expect from us rule breakers we have ditched the conventional and gone full rebel....  Trust us, it feels good to be different from the crowd!

All shorts come with two cute front hand pockets, and yes your eyes are not deceiving you the leg lengths vary.  The left leg has a quirky short front panel and longer back panel, whereas the right leg has a cute turn up creating a funky right cheek patch!

We have called these our festival shorts to pair and pack with our Festival Tee, now you don't actually have to go to a festival to wear these, you could literally be anywhere with your favourite playlist blasting.  One thing we would highly recommend is wellies (what we call wellington boots in Scotland) trust us its a look! 

Available in a limited edition run of 'Proud Purple' cloth, a design inspired by our Water tartan as featured in the 4 X A Year Collection.

• Widest Hips – this can often include a bit of your bottom, so your widest part really. We want to make sure that you can sit down in these trousers and not feel like you have been squeezed into them or even being squeezed out!

Most brands in the 'fashion' world add multipliers of x 2 for wholesale then add another x 2 for retail. When you buy direct from us its a less than x 1, we use the profits from everything we create to support more fairly paid jobs and push the textile world to be more eco-conscious. But we do a lot more like donating to charities and education bodies. This is what we proudly call our ethical pay it forward mark up.

Fabric Cost £40.00
Labour To Make £40.00
QC, Labelling & Packing £7.50

For Cost Per Wear (CPW) we just wanted to share how buying less, paying ethical prices, loving and wearing more is actually really affordable, it’s all about the number of wears!

You wear the item 3 times a week for the next 3 years, that is 468 wears. The CPW is £175 divided by 468 wears, Cost Per Wear 37p!

It is something the 'fashion' world in particular is really bad at.... but we are bad-ass so nothing to hide under this piece of tartan, nothing bad but maybe an ass!

We want to help be part of the solution that drives regenerative change. Buying less, loving more, paying ethical prices and feeling awesome is what we are all about.

To do that, we have these yes we give a sh#t options for you!
