Men’s Shorts Guide
Your official guide to short season is here. We’re talking all about our fits, outseams, fabrics, and trends, and rounding it out to the must-haves in men’s shorts for 2019.
Flat Front Shorts
Flat front shorts have made their claim on warmer weather. These are going to be your go-to for navigating effortlessly from beach to street to backyard BBQ. These shorts will be the most versatile short in your wardrobe, as its easy to dress up and down.
Sizing: Not only are our flat front shorts available in size 26-44, but they’re available in a variety of fits as well. Our two biggest fit options are the standard and athletic fits. There’s also options in length with outseams ranging from 18″-24″.
Favorite Feature: Most flat front shorts are also hybrid shorts, made with comfortable material that dries quickly and wicks moisture away.
Trend report: the e-waist (elastic waistband) is the latest option in shorts that every guy will want for ultimate comfort and style. You’ll be seeing the e-waist trend both in boardshorts and active shorts.
Sizing: Just keep in mind the stretch from the elastic waistband when choosing from x-small to xx-large sizes. E-waist shorts also typically come in a shorter above-the-knee length. This is how they’re meant to fit, and it’s a look that sets them apart from other shorts.
Favorite Feature: The fun novelty prints covering everything from palm trees and flamingos, to pineapples, hotdogs, and sharks. Your go-to brands for the e-waist trend will be Departwest, Brooklyn Cloth, and Valor.
There’s so much happening in boardshorts – new prints, new side pocketing, and new exclusive styles. Your key brands for traditional boardshorts will be Billabong, Fox, and Hurley.
Sizing: Pick your go-to short size and keep the adjustable waist in mind.
Favorite Feature: Just add water! Select American Fighter boardshorts have patterns that appear in water.
For the guy who isn’t afraid to rock a jort, we offer denim shorts in everything from traditional to edgy styles. From BKE and Levi’s, you’ll get classic styles in your favorite fits at a shorter length. From some of our streetwear brands, Crysp, Departwest, DOPE, and Rock Revival, have a lineup that’s sure to grab everyone’s attention.
Sizing: Factor in your jean size and fit. Then, pick from length options ranging from 19″-25″.
Favorite Feature: We’re loving the standout look you can get from streetwear brands. Their slim fitting denim shorts feature everything from heavy bleaching and distress to zippers and moto detailing.
Cargo shorts are reinvented year after year to become a better version of your favorite short. For instance, our cargo shorts are available in the same hybrid material used in our flat front shorts. Talk about comfort and quick drying!
Sizing: Options in size, fit, and length, with sizes ranging from 26-44, lengths ranging from 19″-25″, and your choice of slim, standard, or athletic fits.
Favorite Feature: The extra pockets, of course. Your better half will love that you have all sorts of room in your pockets for their extra things. 😜
