Made in England, following an original 1930s pattern, The Stanton Shorts  are the quintessential addition to your Spring and Summer wardrobe. 


The Stanton Shorts take their name from Stanton Hall of Stanton in Peak, Derbyshire. Home to the Thornhill family since the 17th Century, many of the members holding the position of High-Sheriff of Derbyshire. One such Thornhill was William Pole Thornhill who build Early Grey Tower, dedifated to the Reform Act of 1832 that introduced major changes to the British Electoral System.

It was not without its limitations however; this was the first Act that barred women explicitly by defining a voter as a male person.


Made from a stunning 100% linen in a Navy Grey, The Stanton Shorts are an absolute must for the Summer wardrobe.


The cut is directly taken from an original pattern, capturing the elegance and timelessness of early 20th century fashion. We are delighted to expand on our iconic trouser range to include shorts.


Cut with a high waist and with flattering double forward-facing pleats, the slacks are finished with an authentic button fly, waist fastening and side adjusters.

Also hidden away in the trouser pocket is a 'secret' pocket, with button fastening. Perfect for storing valuables and change.


The slacks are cut to a wide leg and high waisted fit.

The linen is a perfect compliment for a more casual wardrobe option and for warmer climes.


No detail has been left to chance, with even the buttons being made in England from a natural and eco-friendly material called 'Corozo', otherwise known as 'vegetable ivory'. Corozo is derived from the nut of the Tagua Palm which grows in the equatorial rainforests of central America and Ecuador. As the ‘mococha’ nut falls to earth quite naturally when they are ripe, it means that there is no human harvesting or cutting of any part of the tree to make our buttons, which blissfully lives on regardless to continue growing and producing nuts for years to come.
