Shorts have gotten tighter and shorter by the year, and men haven’t been left out of this trend.  The current silhouette of men’s shorts is a square, or close to it.  Just as long as they are wide.  Which is, as a result, showing off and cooling off plenty of scrawny, hairy knees.

Think preppy 90s sportswear; and for the die-hard 90s-trend follower, they come in pastel and sorbet tones!   Want even more 90’s?  Throw a belt on.  And not a hip-slung, studded belt, more for show than function.  You wanna make sure that baby is brown leather, is through the belt-loops, and actually has a chance against an impending downtrail.

There’s also a popular turn-up Bermuda-style in denim, which is slightly longer in the leg, but still above the knee.  The turn-up is only ever a couple of centimetres.  Any more, and you look like you haven’t re-adjusted your pants after paddling in the sea.

If denim isn’t your bag, the turn-up Bermuda comes in grungier 90s tones like terracotta, mustard, brown, and tan.  Or, in an all-over Hawaiian-inspired print, in the same grungey tones.  And don’t forget your matching all-over print button-up shirt and matching 5-panel cap! Trés chic!

Not long now though, for knees to be put away for the winter.  But do not fear, I’m sure we’ll be seeing them again next summer.
