How to Find Shorts That Fit Right and Look Great

On the hottest days of summer, the last thing you want to do is get stuck walking around in a pair of long pants.

But you also don’t want to spend your summer days schlepping around in a pair of baggy cargo shorts, or nylon shorts that make you look like you’re headed to the gym. So rather than going with one of those two options, why not find shorts that fit you right and look great at the same time? Here are a few tips that will help you succeed in this endeavor.

Pick out the right style.

There are a lot of men who end up wearing denim shorts during the summer, simply because they aren’t aware that there are other styles available for them. Instead, you should look for shorts made out of cotton  twill, if possible, since they will look good and keep you cool at all times. You should also stay away from shorts with extra pockets or pleats since they will add unnecessary fabric to your shorts and make you warmer than you have to be. Additionally, you shouldn’t be afraid to experiment with different colors. Khaki and black are both fine choices, but there are plenty of other colors out there to play around with as well.

Choose a cut that works for your body type.

You don’t necessarily want to purchase pairs of shorts that are going to hug your body, but there are plenty of slimmer cut short options available for men today. When you purchase shorts, you should make sure that they fit you comfortably and look good on your specific body type. A store that specializes in fine men’s apparel will be able to help you pick out the cut that works best for you.

Find a length that hits the sweet spot.

When you’re buying shorts for the summer, you don’t want them to be too long or too short. In general, the shorts should fall either just above your knee or just below it. Any shorter and you will feel uncomfortable when you sit down. Any longer and it will look like you’re wearing a pair of capri pants.
