The best lightweight shorts for summer's hottest weather

The best lightweight shorts for men

Italian linen shorts with a drawstring waist by Joyce ($149).

We're officially in the thick of summer now. The brightest days and hottest temps are here (or just around the corner), so it's time to start showing some leg. A simple scroll through Instagram will show you how the coolest guys are wearing them these days. It's a basic formula, really: Simple shirt (either a plain tee or patterned camp collar) with a pair of lightweight shorts that hit right at mid-thigh. The shorts are cut from breezy material, from washed linens and cottons to more technical, sport-influenced fabrics. The choice is yours. And it's an easy one to make because there are so many good options available right now.
