So fucking hot again already today. Mediterranean.
Im doing a bit of a fuk fashion survey, so could you please sign in if you 'cant get on' with shorts, or 'cant justify' spending forty quid on a pair to only wear them every single day for four to five months of the year. Thanks.

Bought 5 pairs of shorts in the past couple of months. Fully converted to Noble's way of thinking now.

Jesus christ, the actual copy on the MrP site is even more embarrassing than my pisstake above:

"In a no-nonsense grey marl, they'll work with all of your other off-duty essentials, and can be dressed up with a chambray shirt and sneakers when you head out to meet friends for coffee."

Sick! Sick! Sick!

Mr Porter is the worst.

(thanks for the heavily-discounted shit though xx)

Also not in the UK so really no help whatsoever. Maybe of interest to somebody though at $54.

Those needles ones were a godsend in the tropics. None of my other of shorts got a look in. They're so lightweight you're practically walking around in your pants

As much as I am shorts fan, I don't feel myself needing anything beyond beige chino pair, navy blue pair. I don't think I'd get much wear from anything that looked too lively. I did want a pair of royal blue ones though, they had a cracking pair in Choice - Wilson Borders & Co or something but they were fucking tight on the thigh even after sizing up
