Shorts for men. Three words that may inflict nightmarish visions for some. Dreadful thoughts of the dad-at-a-BBQ shorts and shirt combo shouldn't spoil this shopping opportunity, though. There are plenty of pieces out there that offer an easy way to dress well during the summer when styled correctly. To help fight the stigma, we've put together a few of our favorites for all budgets, starting at just $26 and going all the way up to the $850 mark.

If your budget is tight, sports shorts are your friends. Runners by the likes of adidas are perfect for more functional purposes. They also come in colorways like lime green, perfect for adding a loud element to your look at a low cost. We've also included an all-white staple pair from the latest JW Anderson x Uniqlo drop — a steal at $40.

Mid-range highlights include shorts by Jerry Lorenzo's Fear of God ESSENTIALS line, as well as the standout new dyed swimmers by Stüssy. However, if you're serious about your shorts, we recommend heading further down the list, where you'll enter high fashion territory. Here, standout items include a plus $1,000 pair by Maison Margiela, which come with an eye-watering price tag.

Scroll on to browse the internet's best shorts for men.
