Made from two pairs of second-hand, tired and damaged woollen suit pants, these relaxed shorts are the perfect example of Coreprêt's signature up-cycling style. 

Intended to suit all bodies, these shorts can be worn extra oversized or slightly tailored. Made in house at the Coreprêt studio, every single pair is different, all are one of a kind and based off the trousers we find locally around Melbourne. Pocket finishes may vary depending on the material capacity, with minimal cutting floor scraps left over (which are collected and stored, ready for the next transformation) 

We're also offering 10% off the marked price if you provide your own suit pants for deconstruction, allowing you the owner to have creative control and also reducing our need to source - a very symbiotic pairing. Simply get in touch by emailing us at

A relaxed oversized fit, these shorts can traverse multiple sizes in one. Size range includes; 

Small; Fits a size 6-10
Medium; Fits a size 10-14
Large; Fits a size 14-18

Please get in touch with us directly if you would like exact measurements of the waist and hem length, all of which can be adjusted to suit your body. Simply book an appointment via our Bespoke page, or get in touch via

We recommend dry clean only or hand wash for spot cleaning
Do not bleach and avoid harsh chemicals
Wool is unique in that it does not need frequent washing, consider brushing the surface to remove any residual dirt.
Naturally freshen up your garment by hanging it in a well ventilated space out of direct sunlight to avoid over washing and apply steam
