Summer means shorts. Keep yours as finely honed as the rest of your look with these classic chinos – the ultimate all-rounders, says menswear editor Ian Wright
With temperatures hotting up (ish) and holidays booked, summer wouldn’t be the same without getting your legs out. But being the well-dressed gent you are, you don’t want your sartorial standards to drop when the mercury rises. Thankfully, these chino shorts take everything from beaches to barbecues in their stride. Three colours mean there’s a shade for every occasion, while the quality is hard to beat. For less than the cost of a train ride to the seaside, you get an adaptive waistband that’ll keep you comfortable (even after an extra sausage from the grill) and Stormwear technology to repel any summer showers the British weather throws at you. In short, these are seasonal essentials.
