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

Shorts are a highly divisive area of men’s clothing. While many swear by them, others stay a safe distance from anything but pants at all times. Regardless of personal taste, when summer rolls around and the temperatures begin to climb, even the staunchest shorts haters begin to wonder what life would be like with their knees in the open air. Whether you’re new to the shorts game or you’ve been in it for years, we’ve rounded up our favorite affordable shorts, all of which come in at under $100.

Summer’s a time of activity, after all, and you don’t want to have to worry about dirtying a pair of luxury cut-offs. With selections from Polo Ralph Lauren, Columbia, and Uniqlo, this roundup covers the length and breadth of affordable shorts. From the technical fabrics found on selections by Gramicci and Norse Projects to more casual corduroy options by Urban Outfitters, there’s sure to be a style for everyone.
