Summer is on the horizon and we can already smell the lighter nights, warmer days and barbecues being fired up all round the country. After a difficult two years where we’ve been confined to our homes, summer 2022 marks the first year where all COVID restrictions are lifted meaning we can truly enjoy spending time with friends, meeting up for food and drinks and attending events.
So, with this dreamy summer of sun (hopefully) just around the corner, you’re going to need a new wardrobe to match. It’s time to pack away the knitwear and dig out shorts, tee’s and sliders.
Shorts are a staple of men’s wardrobes up and down the country; an ideal addition to any modern man’s summer wardrobe, whether it’s for weekend athletic adventures or relaxed fit lounging shorts, they’re an essential item to keep you looking and feeling cool all summer long.
Whether you’re staycationing this year, or heading off abroad for that all-important summer holiday, shorts are a must-have item to pack for when jeans and chinos just won’t cut it.
883 Police recently dropped their freshest spring and summer collection, so we’ve rounded up a few of the best shorts to help you do summer in style, with options that won’t break the bank.
Let’s face it, for those who don’t want to part with their favourite jeans, denim shorts are a perfect alternative to heavier full-length denim during summer. A perfect go-to between smart and casual, the Thierry light blue wash shorts have been engineered in a 98% cotton and 2% elastane blend ensuring they’re stretchy and comfy but will not lose their shape when worn throughout the day.
Ideal for ensuring maximum movement and comfort, the stretch denim has been cut to a narrow fit. The light blue wash finish provides an distinctive worn look and the shorts feature branded hardware as well as rubberised PLCE patch on the rear waist.
Available in a range of sizes, from 28’ waist to 38’ waist, they won’t break the bank at only £40. Pair with a smart tee, white sports socks and fresh kicks for a cleaner, smarter look suitable for days out, drinks with friends or a laid-back lunch.
Arvada Black Jogger Mens Shorts
On the flip side, the Arvada black jogger shorts are a more casual style of shorts ideal for pairing with your athleisure looks. Created from a 100% cotton French terry, they’re super easy to wear. They’re naturally breathable and moisture wicking, perfect for that summer sun whilst the cotton fabric is easy to wash and quick to dry, with minimal ironing needed.
A great all-rounder, these shorts can be worn through summer and heading into Autumn. Pair with the Houston Mens Hoodies and Lodge t-shirt to complete the look or pair with a black slim fit tee, black trainers and finish with a gilet and cap for that sports luxe look – perfect for running errands, heading to the gym or simply hanging with friends.
