UES Duck Shorts are made from the highest quality organic Zimbabwe cotton, harvested in the African highlands without using any chemicals. Weaving is done using treasured, old fashioned shuttles. Although productivity may be low, weaving without an excess of tension creates an appealing fabric with a depth that doesn't detract from the original texture of the thread. Reactive dyes that fade to similar colours are used in the dying thread process. By wearing these pants, the texture increases, and the colours become enriched.

Duck fabric is woven with two yarns together in the warp and a single yarn in the weft. By far the most popular workwear fabric, cotton duck is a weighty, plain-but-strong woven canvas. Despite its name, this hardy workwear fabric has nothing to do with waterfowl or their feathers. The term "duck" comes from the Dutch word doek, which refers to a linen canvas once used for sailors' white trousers and outerwear.

The construction is simply unbeatable. The interior has been patched by high-quality Japanese linen to power up the strength of texture in the crotch, waist and pockets. The fabric is already tough enough, but UES still enhanced them by triple stitching and reinforced fabrics. They are also tough enough for repeat washing, and the shape doesn't even collapse at all.

The fabric has been sulfur dyed, and the buffalo horn buttons are made from natural material from cow's and buffalo's horn.

UES is a small Japanese label founded by Chuji Matsumoto in 1994. UES comes from the English word "Waste", which means that Matsumoto-San wants you to make full use of each garment for as long as possible before discarding it. It is a small judgement of the concept of disposable wear that is so commonplace today in the world of fashion and from which Matsumoto-San disassociates himself completely.
