So Summer is here, we maybe coming out of lockdown, but honestly, let’s put the health of ourselves and others first folks, foreign travels isn’t going to /shouldn’t happen for Summer 2020. However, it’s not all doom and gloom, 2020 will be remembers for a year, on the whole, of great weather, thank Goodness.
So we need to start thinking in a Summer frame of mind, luckily for this year, two main trends seem to be prevalent in the world of men’s shorts and they are polar opposites in the style stake. Firstly we have short shorts, which let’s face it, I wouldn’t inflict me in short shorts on anyone and I know a lot of men feel this way. Then, thankfully, we have Cargo shorts, a much easier and accessible trend for most men to invest in. In fact, let’s hear it from an expert, in the form of Lili Göksenin, Senior Editor of Luxury Menswear Website, MrPorter.com
“Cargo shorts are back in style after years of being mercilessly mocked – but isn’t that always the way with trends, particularly those from the 1990’s? They go very nicely indeed with some similarily utilitarian sandals and a camp-collar shirt. Embrace the theme !”
Here we have ensembled 6 of the best especially for you my friends.
If you’re investing in functional clothes, it might as well be from a brand that’s as experienced in making performance gear as The North Face. These ‘Anticline’ cargo shorts are cut from sweat-wicking, quick-drying cotton-blend twill and have a good number of Velcro-fastening pockets to keep valuables safe.
These cargo shorts feature Stone Island‘s exclusive version of camouflage – the three-pigment print is the result of experimenting with different colouring techniques. Garment-dyed for softness, they’re made from the label’s brushed-cotton Tela and have a comfortable elasticated drawstring waist
If it’s functionality and comfort that you’re looking for in menswear…cargo shorts can’t be missing in your wardrobe. Great for the gym and for lounging on the sofa, when matched with the right top and footwear these shorts can make for the perfect athleisure combo. Try pairing them with a t-shirt, denim jacket and low top trainers for a super easy casual outfit, or sport them with an over-sized printed hoodie and hi-tops for the ultimate streetwear getup and these from BoohooMAN are a perfect example.
You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of cargo shorts. Made from 100% cotton for durable, breathable wear. Featuring two large leg pockets — perfect for holding essentials when out and about. All of the cotton for our clothing is sustainably sourced and always will be from M&S.
Detroit utility meets Parisian sophistication with these A.P.C. and Carhartt WIP shorts. They’re crafted using ripstop cotton – coloured in the subtle grey hue – and fitted with cargo pockets at each thigh for a look that’s both rugged and refined. To finish, they’re branded with a collaborative patch logo that sees the French label’s ‘C’ swapped for the iconic golden ratio at the back.
