THE TAILORED SHORTS
Considered, subtle and refined, with a cut that gives you enough movement for a kick-about, these shorts are a summer essential, says M&S menswear editor, William Oliver.
Come the hot weather, your look needs to be versatile enough to take you from a family Sunday lunch to football in the park at the drop of a hat. Whether worn with a casual, looser-fit Oxford, a slim and sharply cut polo or slickly tailored shirt and blazer, these white and blue pinstripe shorts are perfectly suited. Easily paired with a colourful driving shoe, contrasting deck shoe, suede Derby or trainer, their casually refined feel adds a considered touch. Made from seersucker cotton with five pockets, and finishing slightly above the knee, these adaptable shorts also give you just enough legroom to play a solid game of five-a-side – while making sure you look good throughout.
