Our shorts hub is your one-stop-shop for this summer essential in many forms, from workout-ready pairs to budget-friendly options.

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 our shorts hub recently compiled pairs of shorts for pretty much all occasions, 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 are lightweight, breathable, and certainly not tight. It’s all about finding a suitable replacement to keep you comfy.

Scroll on to check our selection of pants for people who hate wearing shorts.
