Few issues divide the GOACA community quite like shorts do: some of you like them just fine, others find them to be nothing short of an instrument of the devil. And I understand the loathing: they can be tough to wear and unflattering too. But if you wear a shoe with some height, I think even the less-than-perfectly-willowy can get away with them. I love the way a Bermuda-length short looks with a button-down—very casual preppy chic—and this pair is nicely slouchy.
This red pair is awfully snappy.
I showed you these Vince shorts last week in black, but I think they’re pretty classic in the khaki too.
I bought a version of these James Perse shorts a couple of years ago, and they are insanely comfortable.
This chambray pair is pretty cute.
And I’m a big fan of the check pattern here.
These are linen, which is a nice material to have next to your skin when the weather turns toasty.
I almost didn’t include this pair, because the last time I showed denim cutoff shorts, a whole flotilla of you complained that they’re the easiest thing in the world to make yourself and not worth the cash, but every time I try to make my own cutoffs I screw it up somehow, and possibly you are the same. Anyway, I like how these hit right at the knee.
