Inspired by the mens boxer short and perfectly adjusted for the female form, this is WNU’s Short. Made in a loose fit with a flattering cut and available in a kaleidoscope of colours, there’s a short to suit everyone.
INTRODUCTION We don’t just borrow shirts from the boys, we also want their shorts. Inspired by classic mens boxers and using our staple womenswear tailoring, WNU has created the perfect pair of shorts for women, with a loose fit that creates the most flattering and comfortable pair of shorts imaginable (if we do say so ourselves…)
The WNU short is designed to sit just on your waist or hips - whichever is most comfortable for you - with a slightly loose cut to the body. As these have been designed to offer a more generous fit, there is no need to order a size up, as your size will already be a relaxed fit.
MATERIAL Linen. It’s a natural fibre derived from the flax plant, whose durable nature makes it perfect for ensuring an item’s longevity, so you can wear your shorts again and again (and again). Our Linen fabric comes into its own in Summer as the loose weave of the fabric is comfortably light, making it both easy and cool to wear. Oh and the best bit? The relaxed, crumpled texture of washed linen means ironing is completely optional.

SOURCING Our Linen fabric is sourced, woven and made by hand in our two family-run factories in Portugal that we regularly visit. Once the shorts are made, they are shipped to our UK based warehouse where each order is thoroughly checked and pristinely packaged for our customers. Both factories and our warehouse have been chosen through our auditing process to ensure that they uphold the highest standard of working ethic and ensure a proper wage and working conditions.
STYLING Synonymous with Summer, Linen is best worn in the warmer months or better yet, on holiday. Simply pair with a matching linen shirt (we do a few that are quite nice if you fancy a browse) and wear over your swimsuit for days spent by the beach basking in glorious sun. Or for a less-holiday-more-casual look, tuck a white tee into the breezy shirts and throw on a pair of white trainers - perfect for a Summer Saturday.
