MR MARVIS takes men's shorts to the next level

Amsterdam, April 6, 2017 – Amsterdam-based MR MARVIS focuses solely on smart-casual men's shorts. After more than a year of research and development, MR MARVIS presented its perfect shorts with the ultimate fit and a timeless look. So-called slow fashion: if something is perfect, why would you change it. After rapidly establishing the brand in the Dutch market, MR MARVIS is now ready to take on the German, Belgium and UK market.

The Shorts

At MR MARVIS, quality comes first: they don’t cut down on fabric, other materials and the production of their shorts. From sustainable high-quality stretch cotton twill to the partially elastic waistband and the hidden pocket for your phone, MR MARVIS has thought of everything. “Our starting point was the customer. During the development phase, dozens of prototypes and samples have been made in order to create MR MARVIS' vision on the perfect shorts.”, said designer Aafke. MR MARVIS focuses on timeless style, high-quality making and fair working conditions; the brand's way to react against the excesses of fast fashion.

The collection consists of over twenty shorts. Each pair of shorts comes in a carefully selected colour and matching slogan. For example, the all white Wimbledons: When hitting an ace is the only option, and the blue Mavericks: These shorts can be your wingman anytime.


The designs from the Liberty Art Fabrics archive inspired MR MARVIS to release its first full-print short; The Khans. The eye-catching, exciting and mood-lifting floral tiger print for The Khans is curated exclusively for MR MARVIS 2017 Limited Edition collection.


Being a fan of summers spent on the French Riviera, Steven Vrendenbarg (34) and David Sipkens (33) genuinely felt the need for versatile, smart-casual shorts that could take them from the beach to a lunch on the boulevard to a party at night, but they found them hard to find. Together with designer friend Aafke Tuin (36), they developed the perfect shorts: they would be smart-casual and come in one ultimate fit - which they will never change - and are available all year round, in many colours.

For more than a year, the trio focused on research and development of the fit, testing of fabrics and the search for an artisan workshop with craftsmen who would be able to produce MR MARVIS' perfect shorts. From Amsterdam they travelled the world to find the best artisans to produce MR MARVIS’ perfect shorts. They found them in Portugal, near Porto, where the shorts are crafted by hand solely using the highest quality materials. From fabric to buttons and labels: everything is sourced in the vicinity of the production facility. The area is known for premium apparel manufacturers.

MR MARVIS HQ is situated at Herengracht – Gentlemen’s Canal – in the heart of style-minded Amsterdam: The Nine Streets. Constructed in the 17th century, the area is Amsterdam’s most photogenic neighbourhood due to the beautiful canals, small cobbled streets with designer shops, cafés, galleries, and – last but not least – people from all around the world. Each of them with their own style. Inspiration literally is everywhere.

MR MARVIS shorts are exclusively available via The price of the single coloured shorts is €79. The price of the limited edition shorts is €109.
