Keep it short: men's shorts by Esprit
In summer, men's legs are also on show. Especially in Esprit Bermudas and shorts. Shorts for men are available in many different materials, from cotton to linen or classic denim. In different styles and on-trend colours, in plain or patterned. You can wear them in a summer chic, or style them sporty and casual. Which model suits you? Find out in our online shop!
Finding the right men's shorts? it's all a question of length.
So what are the different types? though they're all called shorts, there are differences in length, and models also vary. You can find out which length is right for you in our short overview.
- Shorts reaching to the knee: the classic length, also called Bermudas, suits all men. You can also roll up narrow fit Bermuda shorts.
- Shorts that extend to the middle of the thigh: you can play it safe by wearing shorts that end about a hand's breadth above the knee. The preferred length for slim, fashionable varieties.
- Men's shorts that end shortly before the middle of the thigh: stylish – the model for the brave, ideally with a slim physique.
Tip for buying shorts: don't buy your men's shorts too big as they won't flatter your figure. The shorts must not cut-into the waistband and the legs should not be too tight. Then they'll fit perfectly.
Getting serious: bermuda shorts
Shorts that end slightly above the knee are called Bermudas. These straight cut men's shorts fall loosely on the leg. They can be found in cotton, linen, a mix of materials and also suit fabric. Bermudas always go well with, for example, a linen shirt for the afternoon at your favourite café.
Classic denim: men's jean shorts
Casual and classic at the same time is the best way to describe the look of jean shorts for men. They are available in different washes and styles, from classic dark blue to light models with a washed out effect or distressed. Jean shorts are the perfect companion for leisure, for example chilling out at the park. Combined with a T-shirt and trainers – or flip flops on hot days.
Practical: cargo shorts
Side pockets are the main characteristic of cargo shorts. This very popular model for outdoor activities offers freedom of movement and has carrying space for everything you want to have with you in your free time – but be careful: avoid bulging pockets. Trainers, casual shirts with short sleeves or polo shirts all go well with cargo shorts.
Sporty on the go: sweat shorts
Sweat shorts are derived from classic sweatpants for a street style. These comfortable cotton shorts are ideal for sports and at the beach, combined with print shirts and a sweat jacket for cooler temperatures.
Casual with style: chino shorts
These men's shorts are an urban casual classic
. The short version of the chino is similarly cut a little wider on the thighs and rear. In addition to classic muted colours, they are also available in many bright colours in summer. So be brave! Stylish with a shirt and loafers or espadrilles.
How are Bermuda shorts best combined?
Bermudas and shorts make you think of summer, sun, the beach and sea or sport. Men in Bermudas in particular have what it takes for an urban city look. Strolling through town, on a summer city trip or going out to eat – Bermuda shorts are ideal. Try combining bright colours with a light, plain-coloured shirt or T-shirt. Try patterns at a barbecue.
Bermudas at the office – is that possible?
Shorts for men at the office is a tricky one. Bermuda shorts are the right way to go. Choose subtle colours, a simple shirt and a light jacket. Smart leather shoes can be worn with short socks.
Which shoes go with men's shorts?
It depends on which look you want to create. Trainers are sporty and casual but the casual look also works with boat shoes, loafers or espadrilles. With flip flops you are completely set for summer. Get chic with leather sandals. Only closed leather shoes are suitable for a business look, however.
Tip: socks have lost nothing in open shoes. If you wear trainers, short trainer socks are a good choice because they cannot be seen. Short socks can also be worn with closed leather shoes.
