THE SUMMER-READY DENIM

They may be a perennial favourite, but jeans aren’t always summer-friendly. These simple shorts are the answer, says menswear editor Ian Wright

Jeans. A fashion staple as old as the hills and an intrinsic part of any man’s wardrobe. The trousers born from the blue collar workers of the US have long since been adopted in less demanding everyday situations. But their resilient construction and material doesn’t always make them particularly appropriate for summer. Enter the denim shorts – from David Beckham to Pharrell Williams, men of style have long been reaching for their cut-offs when things heat up. A quick way to switch up your look a little without investing in a whole set of new clothes, lighter washes like this pair work well – and remember, a roll or two is always a good idea to ensure they finish just above the knee. They may be short in length, but they certainly aren’t in style.
