Nice polo shirts are essential with a decent pair of shorts

Saw a glorious plaidish pair from YMC in some store in Brighton. I've got a stone and grey check pair from H&M last year that I love.

Picked up some bermuda shorts yesterday from H&M, were £15. Quite thin and nice cut.

Agreed. Looks bland with tees. Maybe a nice casual shirt or s/s.

Got a nice pair of Umbro for Kim Jones off Yoox a month or so ago. Think they were 30 quid.

i hate camo shorts so much cos they are so saturated now everywhere you go, but these a&f jobbies are the most comfy and practical shorts i have…just wish i bought them in a plain colour when i purchased them a couple of years back, cos i would never wear these anywhere decent..they are for marks and sparks and the park with pitbull only cos of the stigma attached now, which is a bloody shame cos i love them.

I hate them with a passion but like Noble i got them as well(well topman version) and they are so comfy. I feel guilty when i wear them cos i know they are about as fashionable as ripped jeans but they are just so damn comfortable. I can only wear them abroad.

Bought a pair when I was in Thailand. They have frayed edges which is even worse, but I loved them….still love them now if I'm honest Oops

Just get a tub of dylon in black or something. You just bung it in the washing machine with them, simple as.

I found about 6 pairs of shorts last nigbht (although not the actual ones I was looking for), pretty much all knee length chino-ish efforts.
I think shorter shorts can look col if they're not overdone but really on me.

Noble the A&F jobbies are pretty good, even in a saturated market.

I swooped on the River Island ones if i remember correctly. Size up so they sit below the knee. Comfy and like Stonefish said practical, even if a touch uncool.

just been wondering about the general concensus on denim shorts, are they ban-worthy or can they work?

cos i've got a couple of pairs of baggy jeans sitting about which i don't wear anymore and was thinking if it was worth cutting them into shorts or just binnig them.

cheers for any input
