Details & Technical Info +-

Thompson are mid-length shorts (6-inch/15cm) with a wider fit than our other styles, making them ideal for those with well-muscled legs or a slightly heavier build.

A 3½-inch (9cm) panel across the rise made from light, breathable mesh means the shorts can be worn for intense gym workouts and warm weather running alike.

Thompson shorts also have traditional side pockets, and a zipped inner pocket on the right hip designed to fit smaller items such as keys or a credit card.

  • Beautiful, high-performing Italian fabric
  • Flat front, elasticated rear, internal draw cord
  • Soft, breathable mesh inner brief
  • Traditional side pockets plus secure hip pocket
  • Machine wash at 30°C
  • Designed in the UK and made in Europe

N.B. Thompson have now been replaced by our new Brighton 8" Shorts. Both shorts are the same style and are made from the same high-performing Italian fabric, but Brighton are 2 inches longer than Thompson.

What the press say

Coach Mag - Thompson 6" Shorts

"This is the pair for you if you deadlift, squat or do any strength training that results in chunky thighs. A wider fit means even those with the most tree trunk-esque legs can run without fear of unfortunate seam tears, or worse, a perpetual semi-wedgie. We used the little zip pocket to hold our house key, but have just discovered it’s also the perfect size for an iPod Nano."
