As I stared out at the rain beating down on the train window during my daily commute, my mind couldn’t help but take me to a beach somewhere, Cancun, Ibiza; I think at a push I would even settle for Kavos! Then I thought, just because I’m not on a beach somewhere, it doesn’t mean that you guys aren’t currently frantically looking for holiday clothes.
Keeping cool, looking cool, it takes a lot of effort. I have rounded up the top 10 men’s shorts to keep you looking and feeling cool this summer.
10. Grey Longer Length Chino Shorts @ Topman
Nice classic style, being grey in colour allows these shorts to be a staple piece in your summer wardrobe and at only £25 they are a steal.
9. Navy Blue Belted Oxford Shorts @ River Island
A preppy style piece with a belt included – these matched with some nice loafers can give you the smart summer style. Catch them whilst you can for only £30.
8. 9″ Stanton Pink Cotton-Twill Shorts @ Mr Porter
These stylish cotton shorts are ideal for keeping cool. Natural materials like cotton are great for the hot weather. Pink isn’t for everyone’s taste or style but if you’re brave enough you can grab them for £65.
7. Long-Length Twill Shorts @ BoohooMAN
UKs largest fast fashion has launched a ‘man’ range – and it’s just as cheap as the women’s. These shorts at just £15 are perfect for that casual summer BBQ.
6. Asylum Denim Ripped Short @ Footasylum
Ripped jeans seem to be this summers staple for any fashion forward male, why not transcend this style onto denim shorts. Great for everyday comfort at £34.99.
5. Washed Black Denim Shorts @ The Idle Man
The Idle Man seem to be taking the male fashion industry by storm. These washed black denim shorts are a steal at only £22.
4. Washed Burgundy Blake Shorts @ Urban Outfitters
Urban outfitters are known for their vintage styling and with their sale now on these washed burgundy shorts are perfect now at only £30.
3. Navy Blue Chino Shorts @ Lyle and Scott
Classic Scottish heritage clothing brand, Lyle and Scott deliver consistent styles and created an iconic brand. A little more pricey than others but at £60 you’re getting a re-wearable classic.
2. Levi’s 511 Slim Cut off Short @ Coggles
The list would not be complete without the denim masters and their classic 511 denim short. Quality summer short for a quality price of only £55.
1. The Idle Man Twill Shorts @ Idle Man
Topping the list, even after having a previous mention, is the ultra cool The Idle Man’s own brand. These white shorts should be an absolute key piece to your summer wardrobe or suitcase!
Like I said, I’m not off anywhere hot or glamorous, but I’ll be damned if I ain’t getting some shorts on this summer; even if it is for the viewing pleasure of MCR city centre!
