Let’s say you live in a city that gets warm in the summer months and that is populated by many well-dressed individuals. Let’s further say that you value comfort just as much as appearance and that you’re brave and confident enough that you’d like to project a certain swankiness during those warm days. Can you do it? Can you pull of shorts and still be a well-dressed man? Of course you can. However, let me warn you, the points for difficulty are pretty high when it comes to the cheeky matter of truncated trousers in the city.

The primary pitfall of wearing shorts is the socks. Most shorts look best with no socks – or at least the illusion of it. Some stores like H&M carry barely visible footie socks. You should also know how to pick the right shoe. Go for thin and not too chunky, perhaps loafers, boat shoes, driving shoes, or suede bucks. A carefully selected sandal can also be appropriate. The final piece of the formula is the jacket. If you’re going to pair one with your shorts, don’t match them like a suit.

Finally, as with any fashion decision: if you’re going to wear it, do it confidently.

Wow this is so chic! Love the shorts, perfect length, and the shirt is gorgeous. This is the way to do casual.
I may need to use you as an example in my next menswear post. :D
Love your style!

Great find on the top, and the thin belt caught my eye. Aside from the photo, you make a whole lot of sense in your writeup. Hype and heart!
