Like swim trunks and t-shirts, shorts are something you wear casually but really want to fit well—or else the look is too casual. The best men’s shorts sit comfortably on your waist, hit at a flattering length on your leg and are cut from breathable fabrics so you can wear them in all types of weather. Whether you need shorts for the office, weekends, hiking or working out, we read all the reviews on the market so you don’t have to, and found the best shorts for different needs and budgets.
Our top pick overall is Huckberry’s Flint And Tinder 365 Short, which is made from high-quality stretch cotton and has a classic fit. For an affordable pair you can buy multiples of, we recommend Amazon’s Essentials Men’s Classic-Fit Cargo
