It's so difficult to find a quality pair of shorts these days in the £120 range. I don't mean sports, cargo, swimming, board shorts, just ordinary shorts. I spent two hours perusing online then another 4 the next morning until settling on a 'last pair left in this size' of RL from Monsieur Porter.

Navy ones with a small ships wheel repeated print on. I'm going to return them as they're too thin, I thought they were cotton but it's a cotton blend.

Fancy some fruity shorts, something like the Post Overalls ones they used to do. Anything about?

Really like these but sold out in my size:

just go to GAP for basic shorts with decent fits imo always come through for me.

ralph lauren linen blend shorts from the outlet are amazing. Something like £40, would happily pay triple that for them as they are perfect in every way. Gap are too tight on thighs for me, these have enough room but don't flare out and look baggy at the bottom, hit above the knee. Lined, etc. There's no competition, these are the best plain shorts / price you can buy

copped some of these today from hoko in bristol. really struggle to find good shorts but these are awesome, nice light + soft canvas material, not like sweat shorts (tucked t-shirt in model pic is dumb as fuck though)

That's a lot to spend on less fabric than a pair of trousers. Gym membership and a pair of Adidas shorts comes in cheaper Eye-wink

Less fabric but just as much work in terms of hems, seams, joins etc.
