As the weather gets warmer, the pants get shorter. Or, at least they should. Mens’s shorts are still one of the most controversial fashion garments worn today – a definite no-no in the office, even on casual Fridays, and they are never to be seen in a nightclub or bar. However, with the Australian summer being so relentless, it’s about time that men were free to wear shorts outside their homes without public scrutiny. If you love to wear your shorts, or have a brother, dad or friend who loves a pair, shop online on eBay for the largest range of quality shorts for men from popular designers.
Types of men’s shorts and what to wear with them
Chino shorts: The shorter version of the men’s staple namesake, chino shorts sit just above the knee. Gathering their inspiration from the French Riviera, chinos are made from cotton twill and strike that perfect balance between weight and durability. Team with a smart casual t-shirt or long-sleeved shirt. Jean shorts: Denim will never go out of style, and neither will the ‘jorts’ (jean shorts). Worn fitted more than loosely, they really need no introduction. Wear with just about anything from t-shirts to jackets, singlet tops and check shirts. Surf shorts: Made from smooth nylon or lycra, surf shorts are the perfect pair to wear in the water as they are quick to dry. Worn loose and wide, they usually extend below the knee and come in a variety of bright patterns or colours. A tshirt is optional. Athletic shorts: Sports-luxe isn’t just for the females – running shorts are now a popular addition in any man’s wardrobe. Perfect for jogging, playing basketball, or lifting iron at the gym, athletic shorts can be worn with loose, oversized tshirts or nothing at all.
