When things heat up, being well-dressed can often take a back seat in favor of comfort.
For many, the arrival of summer results in a knee-jerk removal of anything below the knee when it comes to legwear. For some of us, though, the mere thought of shorts is the stuff of nightmares. A category of clothing that has no place on a full-grown man.
While there are several different lengths of shorts for every occasion, this time we're catering to those in opposition. If for whatever reason you insist on wearing pants all summer, then you need a pair that is lightweight, breathable, and certainly not tight. It's all about finding suitable summer pants to keep you comfy.
