Where the runway meets the street

It’s all super exciting when we get to usher in the next season’s collections and everything, but the weather doesn’t exactly feel particularly Fall/Winter 2013 right now. Shops are making it hard for us to keep dressing appropriately, pushing out stock they’ve had knocking about for months via the 50% off rail. Everybody loves a discount, but not when all that’s left comes in an XXXL. We’ve taken on the challenge of finding 10 relatively new shorts, still available now, for your late summer purchasing pleasure.


YMC Leopard Shorts

YMC kills it again with another one of their leopard prints. The boldness is softened with shades of navy and dark grey, and the cotton canvas has been given a light rinse wash to create a gently laundered look. You can get these now from their website.


U Clothing Jersey Shorts

These dope shorts from U Clothing will really let that air circulate between your knees. They combine the brand’s utilitarian approach with soft premium cotton for shorts that you’re just never going to want to take off. Buy yourself a pair from oki-ni.


NN.07 Chino Shorts

These olive-brown chino shorts by NN.07 are set apart by the detail of an all-over embroidered dot pattern. Their relaxed cut is made from crisp cotton which means they’ll look as casual or as fancy as you want them to. Get hold of a pair at MR PORTER.


Wood Wood Spitz Shorts

These shorts from Wood Wood tap into a sportswear vibe. Constructed from lightweight nylon with an elastic waist, they’re still going to look as good in the city as they are on any sports field. Available direct from Wood Wood.


Folk Track Short

Here we have a sweet pair of sweat-shorts from the dapper gents over at Folk. They’re made from heavyweight cotton for ultra comfort, and they’ve included some of those sneaky details Folk are so known and loved for: multicolored drawstrings and lining. You can get your hands on these from Oi Polloi.


Stussy Red Howard Shorts

These red check Stussy shorts are pretty loud, but by no means the loudest on our list. It is summer, after all. You can buy these from The Hideout.


William Fox and Sons Shorts

We warned you that the Stussy pair weren’t the loudest on the list. These William Fox and Sons shorts have been made exclusively for Present London, and they’ve gone all out with a yellow leaf print. Add them to your wardrobe by buying them here.


Bedwin Bandana Pants

Made from a super light, supple cotton, these shorts by BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS are perfect for summer in feel as well as look, with an all-over mini-floral pattern. Pick up this pair from HAVEN.


Patta Shorts

Patta stamp their name all over these shorts with this repeated P pattern. In a heavyweight cotton and a classic beige, they’ll be a timeless addition to your summer leg wear. These you can buy direct from the source.


Norse Projects Brick Red Chinos

Trust Norse Projects to bring the goods. Their classic chino quality comes in a summer-appropriate knee-length in a nice, bright brick red. Purchase these via Up There Store.
