    The Buckler Short

    Buckler is our shortest short and is inspired by retro swimwear and trips to the Italian coast. The shorter length makes it ideal for swimming and tanning, although we know some of you love them to surf in too.

    Based on a pair of tailored trousers and made from our signature quick drying recycled materials, they blend sartorial detailing with an elegant, slim fit.

    Lined with a supportive mesh brief, their waist is secured with a double popper and they have an internal drawcord.

    Digitally printed in England. Lovingly made in Portugal.
