Our John Lewis & Partners chino shorts are a timeless warm weather staple. Made from smooth cotton in a comfortable regular fit, the belt loops, side seam pockets and button-up welt reverse pockets complete a classic look while natural corozo nut buttons provide a considered finish. The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a not-for-profit organisation which exists to ‘make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in, and better for the sector's future. BCI works with partners around the world such as WWF, Solidaridad and Cotton Connect to train farmers to produce cotton more sustainably. By buying cotton products from John Lewis & Partners, you're supporting the training of these farmers to use water efficiently, care for the health of the soil and natural habitats, reduce the use of the most harmful chemicals and apply principles of fair and decent work.
