Ripstop Gunnee Shorts
INTRODUCING OUR NEW HOT SEASON FABRIC: RIPSTOP
It’s literally all in the name: this fabric is designed to ‘stop a rip’ if it snags, by catching on the stronger, reinforcing thread. That’s why this unique fabric has a subtle square pattern across its surface.
This is often the same fabric weaving technique used for yacht sails, wing suits, army uniforms and hot air balloons - so you know this stuff is the real deal.
This fabric will arrive to your door crisp and light and whilst it will soften with a wash it will hold its shape more than our softer & heavier drill, meaning it has a little less give. So, if you find you are in between sizes or you have a firm fit in our drill, we recommend SIZING UP in the ripstop.
THE GUNNEE SHORT
Named after our founders’ favourite childhood cattle station. These shorts offer a particular freedom and playfulness that perhaps a lot of us have left behind in adult years. With a wide trouser opening for a full range of movement, the fit reminded her of playing in greasy sheep yards with her siblings, riding in Ute trays, sharing milo and mattresses with the work dogs and working cattle three times your size. These shorts are a nod to the bravery and freedom of the country kids: may we never grow up.
