SÜK Relaxed Work Shorts
SÜK’s answer to the standard work short. Fitted at the waist, with pleats and a wide leg that won’t constrict voluptuous forms. Breathable 100% cotton fabric.
We have found in fittings these garments look great a size down. If you like a fit that cinches slightly at the waist, pull the measuring tape tight when taking your natural waist measurement, and compare this to our size chart.
Model is 170cm and wears a size 14.
Spending her twenties on building sites, farms and long-haul ships, brand founder and creative director Mimosa Schmidt knows what it means to get her hands dirty. Often working in hyper masculine spaces, at times being the only woman on site, during these formative years she also learnt what it means to be watched on the job. Her femininity, in the context of hard labour, was still wrongly seen to imply weakness, incompetence, and inexperience.
Dressed in standard-issue, ill fitting workwear, she felt overlooked from the get go. A feeling that was exacerbated by the harassment and isolation she endured, for which gender seemed to be the only catalyst. Slogging it out in sagging overalls and baggy workshirts, she started to dream up designs that would empower those who have to work doubly hard to earn the respect most others are given freely.
Enter SÜK Workwear. The culmination of years of research and inspired design prototypes, SÜK is built on the ethos of celebrating all workers as worthy.
Prewashed to prevent shrinkage, and surprisingly soft. A lightly brushed, 100% cotton drill that feels like an old favourite. At 310 gsm our garments are built to last, & will accrue character with age. Every stage of garment manufacturing has been conducted to the highest ethical standard: from fabric sourcing to factory production, right down to the small details — like the 100% vegan leather patches on our back pockets.
