Amundsen 7 Incher Field Shorts Mens


Amundsen's Field Shorts are made with extra strong stretch Cordura from FOV Sweden. These lightweight shorts are designed for rugged use, bolstered with waxed cotton canvas reinforcements from Halley Stevenson, Scotland. Above the right-hand pocket, you’ll find our signature weathered red color watch pocket.

The concept of waxed cotton was originally developed in the early 15th century by Scottish herring fishermen, with crews beginning to treat their sails with fish oils and grease to waterproof their rigging. Remnants of these waxed sails were then used as capes to withstand the high winds and sea spray, keeping the sailors warm and dry.

Both our suppliers of waxed cotton; Halley Stevenson’s of Scotland (est. 1864) and British Millerain of England (est. 1880), have pioneered the development of the material. Its coating can be maintained by the end user by re-applying wax to the surface, keeping the material soft, supple, and weather-resistant. The finish ensures that the fabric looks better with age, as wax naturally picks up marks and creases through use – adding to the character of the fabric itself.
