Comfort and design. The best men's shorts for summer

Looking for casual shorts for a trip to the beach? We have the ideal styles for every occasion. Many are cut for a casual fit ensuring the straightforward styles have a timeless expression.

Tapered fit shorts narrow through the leg. In addition to belt loops and zip fastenings, they often feature front and back pockets as well as front pleats and rolled hems to underscore their classic, softly tailored look.


Straight leg shorts are a classic style. Minimally detailed, often with side slant pockets, back welt pockets, belt loops and a zip and button fastening, they are both classic in expression and comfortable in fit.

Plain Units men's shorts are available in three different silhouettes: straight, slim and tapered. Straight-fit men's shorts are designed to sit comfortably on the waist and not be too tight or hang too low at the crotch. Straight fit shorts have a versatile expression that adapts to your frame.

Plain Units slim-fit shorts taper down the leg. Ideal for men with a slim to average build who prefer a fitted look, they are classically cut with a hint of stretch for a simple, semi-formal silhouette that is both comfortable and flexible.


Our tapered-fit shorts are designed to sit slightly loose around the thighs and narrower from the knees. Sitting mid-waist, they offer room to move comfortably and are ideal  for men with average to muscular legs who want space for their thighs while maintaining a defined silhouette.
