What is Fieldlife all about?

Inspired by her two young children, Kendra Marsh founded Fieldlife in 2013 with a view to combining her family and career, together with developing an idea to bring children’s clothing manufacturing back to Britain. Her mission is to create high quality clothes that not only look good but will stand up to all that children will throw at them and will become a child’s much loved piece of clothing.

Fieldlife make British clothing for children to live their life in whatever their field. Their clothes are made to withstand the rigours of childhood, children’s adventures, making sandcastles, climbing trees and building dens. Fieldlife believe in British manufacturing and craftsmanship and they work with a small number of British factories that understand Fieldlife and their love of clothes.

The SS14 Collection sees a new lifestyle label for boys and girls aged 2 – 8 and is inspired by a Day Trip to London and an exciting journey along the Thames riverbank with many adventures along the way. The collection includes a range of versatile separates such as T’s, sweatshirts, skirts, shorts and trousers to swimwear and rash vests for the beach or messing about on boats.

Designed in bold and bright colours, thoughtful details such as adjustable waistbands in trousers and a double name tape in the label are also included so that the clothes can be handed down and become the next child’s favourite.

Boys Ecru Drawstring Short in Size 3-4y

“Essential shorts, suggested uses include tree climbing, den building and ice cream eating.

100% cotton, Machine Wash, Sturdy cotton twill fabric, Elasticated drawstring waist, Garment washed.”

Aron got to try out these shorts and they really suited him. The quality is fantastic and the drawstring really helps to ease the shorts on and off. As Aron is potty trained, the drawstring helped to pull the shorts down when nature called. As for recommended use, i.e. tree climbing, den building and ice cream eating, Aron managed 1 out of 3 (ice cream eating), but managed to ensure full quality training in the garden and when riding his scooter. And, the shorts held their own! The Ecru colour is lovely and makes Aron look like a sailor!

What did I like most about the Boys Ecru Drawstring Short?

The colour is very versatile and goes with pretty much any top and the 100% quality is built to last. Also offers a lot of room for busy ones like Aron to run around in.


5 out of 5 – No fault with this product at all. The price is a tad on the expensive side, but if you’re looking for an investment, you’ve come to the right place. The shorts are roomy and the drawstring allows for longer period of use. You should easily get at least a year out of these, even for toddlers with growth spurts!

Boys Navy Drawstring Short in 2-3y

Aidan tried out the Navy shorts and they are just as good as the Ecru shorts, with equally as fantastic 100% cotton quality. I absolutely love these shorts and Aidan is the busy bee of the family. He definitely worked these shorts out and they fit very comfortably over his nappy area. The drawstring is easy to untie and tie back up again and the navy again is versatile enough to go with any top. Massively pleased with these shorts!

What did I like most about the Boys Navy Drawstring Short?

Aidan is 2 and I believe he will be able to wear these shorts for at least another 18 months. The drawstring can expand the shorts quite far to fit their little bellies, but secure enough to fit round teeny waists like Aidan’s. The navy colour is fab and the quality is excellent – these shorts are built to last!


5 out of 5 – Again, no faults can be found on these shorts. I love everything about them, including the fact that they’re roomy, versatile and sturdy.

Fieldlife promises to bring you clothes that are made to withstand the rigours of childhood, children’s adventures, making sandcastles, climbing trees and building dens, and they don’t disappoint. These shorts can definitely withstand the rigours of these two boys!
