Come Witness the Union of an Iconic Aussie Duo

Vegemite and butter. Shane Warne and darts. One Teaspoon and Bonds.

What do all of the aforementioned things have in common? They’re all bloody iconic Aussie duos, and we’re here to tell you about our favourite of the bunch.

Wardrobe staple One Teaspoon and true blue icon Bonds have teamed up for a limited edition pair of denim shorts, dubbed the ‘Marlon.’ Available in black, blue denim and red colourways, they’re looking a lot to us like an essential summer purchase that’s perfect for the beach and workplace—if you work in an office like ours that is, where the dress code is non-existent and we’re pretty sure one of the designers has moved into the storeroom.

One Teaspoon’s recognisable distressed denim shorts are waterproof, with a relaxed fit and a curved, raw hem that pairs perfectly with a Bonds tank or tee. We lied about them being waterproof—wet denim and chafe’s another iconic duo that’s best left alone.

Get your Marlons right now over on and select Bonds stores.
