Spring season is winding down and making way for summer.  This is the time of year when men want to beat the heat just as much as the ladies do.  That means wearing shorts, sandals and even rolling up your trousers for that preppy look.  This year a variety of shorts are available to suit your personal style.

You’ll find everything from the long to the short.  While most men feel comfortable wearing shorts to the knee, there is a definite shift in a trend towards a shorter, mid-thigh style.  Traditional colours like black, white and tan are still popular for the season.  But the best selections include patterns, plaids and bright, bold colours like red, orange and green.

The Cargo still is one of the most popular for men to wear in the summer season.  It’s easy, casual and very comfortable.  Perfect for the patio party, backyard barbeque or just kickin’ it with friends.

The mid-thigh short is still very new for some men.  It’s not an easy look to pull off  but if it’s cuffed or pleated, it looks great with a blazer like what was shown on the runway at New York Fashion Week.  Overall, men have a variety of choice this season that makes getting your look together while beating the heat so simple.
