Our newest shorts are also our most versatile.
Thompson shorts feature a mid-length (6-inch/15cm) leg with a slightly fuller cut than our other styles, making them ideal if you have well-muscled legs or a slightly heavier build.
A 3½-inch (9cm) panel across the rise made from light, breathable mesh means the shorts are ideal for intense gym workouts or warm-weather running.
Thompson shorts also have traditional side pockets and a secure, zipped inner pocket on the right hip designed to fit smaller audio players such as the iPod mini.
Available in Marine Blue and Gravel Black, plus Gravel Black with ‘Contours Man’ print. (A matching Thorpe top with ‘Contours Man’ print is also available.)
