Tailored for effortless style and unrivaled performance – the 5 Ways Short bridges the gap between exercise and leisure. The secret is in the fabric - a technical Italian two-way stretch nylon that is sweat-wicking and water repellent, while retaining a soft cotton handfeel typical of a leisure short. With clean lines and tailored detailing, the 5 Ways Short will take you from centre court to café in style.


We’ve designed the 5 Ways short as a technical sports short that can be worn all weekend. The structured waistband and flattering 6” inseam provide a tailored look and unrivaled performance, making the 5 Ways Short your ultimate weekender.


When it comes to textile excellence the grand mills of Lake Como, Italy are ahead of the pack. It was here in 1956 that one such mill developed the world’s first elastic fabric. Since that time, fabric from this mill has been responsible for major technical achievements in performance fabric, including the banned LZR Racer swimsuit that was responsible for 98% of all swimming medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. When we needed a unique product that fused luxury sportswear with leisure it only made sense to partner with the very best in performance fabric innovation.

First out of my wardrobe

Pretty much wear these all weekend. Light jog, brunch and lounging about. Super durable and very flattering in most contexts

Classic everyday shorts

Exceptional fabric quality, classic design, high end metal buckles. Husband loves these. Fits true to size - he normally wears a 32" in trousers/

Dries so quickly!

When I'm lazy, I use the 5 Ways as my back-up swimming short. The water repellent finish is awesome and dries quicker than most of my traditional swim shorts. Looks sharp too.

Nothing like this on the market

I live in Paddington and often find myself having a hit of tennis or golf and then going straight to brunch. Getting changed is a hassle. The 5 Ways changed that. The fabric is sporty enough with stretch to make it perfect for light physical activity, but the tailored details make it perfect for a brunch or BBQ and pairs well with a collared shirt. I would also like a 7 " inch version.
