From versatile denim shorts, which can be worn for any occasion, to chino shorts and more casual boardshorts, perfect for the warmer seasons, you're bound to find your next favourite pair of men’s shorts.

Men's denim shorts are an essential part of any gent’s wardrobe. A good pair will take you from summer to winter and everywhere in between. We stock the latest men’s short styles from Dr Denim, Lee, and Rollas in a wide range of fits and washes.

Choose from slim fit denim shorts, designed to sit close to the thigh, and much looser fitting styles. Our men’s denim shorts also offer a variety of washes, so you can find the perfect pair to complement your style. From light to mid and dark washes, we have something to suit.

Our men’s denim shorts also feature clean finishes or styles with tons of rips and repairs. Wear with Dr Martens boots for a more alternative look or team with some simple Vans low-tops for beach-ready style.

Our chino shorts, fronted most prominently by Standard and Arvust, can be dressed up for events or a night out but can also be worn to the beach. Designed in heavyweight cotton, they are great as the weather starts to cool. Style with a long sleeve shirt, short and long sleeve t-shirt or a denim jacket for an elevated everyday look.

Wanting to elevate your menswear style game? A pair of men’s cargo shorts are the perfect way to do it. With a baggier fit, tabs and pockets galore, men’s cargo shorts add more interest to your outfit with a different shape and fit. Pair with a basic tee and shoes, and let the cargo shorts make the statement.
