The shorts you need this summer

The warmer months are officially upon us, so it’s time to turn to some clothing that defines men’s summer style – shorts. Essential for handling the heat, they will have you ready for trips to the beach or the sweltering city days of June through to August. Some still doubt their style credentials, even as the rules of menswear continue to be relaxed. But as temperatures move into the late 20s and beyond, we say looking cool, calm and collected in shorts beats being hot and bothered in trousers every time. And there's just no competition if the shorts in question are sharply cut from great fabrics, like the ones below.

Dress it up, dress it down

Striking the perfect balance of smart and casual, these clean-cut shorts are crafted from lightweight Italian stretch-cotton in a fresh summer shade. Add a tailored shirt to keep things on the smart side.

High style in high temperatures

A sleek modern look is possible with shorts. Crafted from rich gabardine fabric, this navy pair in a relaxed silhouette will do just that – especially if worn with a similar dark shade.

New neutral

Dress down your summer look with this style featuring a subtle patterned finish. The versatile shade of beige will make these your go-to base for a range of looks.

Keep it sporty

For an easygoing day, or a trip to the gym, these sporty shorts in soft cotton jersey will deliver on both levels.

Expect the unexpected

At first glance: a casual long-length style in beige, ready for a walk in the city or a day by the coast. A closer look reveals a floral pattern laser-printed in a tonal finish.
