Denim Supertrousers Mens

Cactus has made Denim Supertrousers! They're tough like Supertrousers but fit like a Jean.

Availability: In stock

NZD $220.00

* Required Fields



Please Note: Do not shorten (hem) prior to first wash as shrinkage may occur. These are a different fit to the Canvas Supertrousers*

These come hemmed to a standard length – see the 'Sizing' tab above.

For a longer leg length, you need Denim Supertrousers Extra Long.

If you need them hemmed shorter, we can do this for you. Just send them back to us – after you've washed them – with a note specifying the length you'd like them hemmed to. To work this out, measure your leg inseam – this is from your crotch to the floor, in bare feet. There is a $25 charge for hemming.

Or you can hem them yourself. You do not require a heavy duty sewing machine for our denim, unlike our canvas. 


Just when you thought that we had thought of everything, we've taken things a step further and introduced yet another member to the Supertrouser family. A denim version. But in true Cactus form, this isn't any ordinary denim. Made from a tough, Cordura denim, these pants have potential to become the greatest looking pair of denim trousers you ever put on. Like the Canvas Supertrousers, after about 6 months of hard wear and tear, they will have taken on that feeling of a second skin and look like they were made especially for you.

Because Cactus customers demand more than a pair of jeans to drink a latte in, we needed to find a fabric that could withstand a bit of a thrashing. This is why we went for the Cordura Denim which is 4x more abrasion resistant than normal cotton denim. The inclusion of high-tenacity nylon fiber helps resist tears, rips and punctures. 

*These are a different fit to the Canvas Supertrouser pattern and are the result of some serious trials and wear testing to make sure we nailed it. The fit is slim (but not skinny) and has a lower rise and fit more like a jean than a canvas Supertrouser.

So if you're one of those guys who finds buying denim (jeans) a nightmare, look no further - these will tick all of the boxes and fit like nothing else. You can count on Cactus to get it right. 

  • Cordura 12oz Denim is super durable, comfortable and wears in like nothing else
  • 4x more abraision resistant than normal cotton denim
  • Still super practical for people who move their legs with the articulated knee design
  • Slim (but not skinny) fit which can handle almost any social situation
  • Clothing related embarrassing situations are minimised by YKK zips (because they’re the best) and bar-tacks at all stress points
  • Cactus-Tough Lifetime Warranty
  • Made in New Zealand



• 12oz Cordura denim - 13% Cordura, 87% mixed cotton (4x more abrasion resistant to normal cotton)


Machine wash in cold water only. Rinse thoroughly, line dry. 

Do not dry clean or bleach.

Pant length will reduce by approx. 4cm during initial wash.

 Please note: When new, be careful not to ruin your mates brand new white leather seats in his/her Mercedes - the indigo dye does tend to bleed a little (this is common on all quality denim products).


If the colour or size you want is not showing, we are probably out of stock. Email or call us to find out when they will be here or to place a backorder.


No sign of wear after 1 yearReview by Eeuwe
Fantastic trousers that are lasting so much longer compared to any other jeans I've had. After one year, most jeans I've owned start to wear where I sit on my a$$ all day and the pockets are usually gone but these show no sign of this They are also a great cut and fit like a glove. Recently a nail snagged the material and put a hole in the seam but this was fixed for $15. Brilliant. (Posted on 4/01/19)
Excellent purchaseReview by Ryan
I've had these as daily-wear jeans for almost 3 years. All other jeans I've ever had were well worn out before that age. When I need another pair I'll buy the same. (Posted on 27/12/18)
Didn’t wear like I hoped. Review by Guy
Love the durability of my other cactus products so was expecting similar with these but was disappointed with how the material wore. I wear jeans a lot for work as I need to look tidy but my job is also relatively hard on clothing so pants tend not last a long time, thought these were the answer so forked out the extra dollars as they aren’t cheap! Never mind they were comfortable & looked fine just the price versus longevity equation didn’t work for me. (Posted on 31/08/18)
Great jeans - comfy and cool fitReview by Niel
I was a bit apprehensive about ordering these thinking I was going to have to spend a while wearing them in but straight out of the bag they are super comfy and a great cut / fit. Ordered the same size as my super shorts and they are just perfect - my super shorts are a little bit roomy.
Nice one cactus. (Posted on 2/06/18)
Good idea, hasn't really worked outReview by Peter
Bought these because I love my supertrousers and tend to rip through my jeans in seconds. Got the same size as my supertrousers as the sizing chart is identical but they were a bit of a squeeze. I put it down to the newness and slightly skinny fit so didn't mind to start with.

Unfortunately they haven't loosened at all with as much wear as I could bear and are now so tight on my legs that I can't carry anything in the irritating internal pockets.

From such a fantastic idea with great potential, these have now been relegated to being a regretted, expensive trouser drawer filler. (Posted on 11/04/18)

Great pants for going out. Good fit and look awesome. Far better material then standard denim. (Posted on 22/02/18)
