When it's too hot for track pants (or you're planning on working up a sweat), nothing's more versatile than a pair of comfy men's jogger shorts as a wardrobe foundation. Throw them on with a tee, combine them with a printed shirt… hell, even pull them on over your slim-leg jogging bottoms if you want to achieve a laid-back layered look.
Cuts and fabrics
While we favour a slim leg on our jogging pants these days, we're all about loose cuts on the cropped-leg versions. A loose or straight cut is the easiest option to style, plus they allow a bit of give around the thigh which is perfect for the more athletic shape. If you're looking for a slim-legged short, shop our denim capsule for the perfect style. When it comes to jogging short fabrics, softness is top of the wishlist. So look for compositions with a high cotton content and a brushed reverse side for comfort against the skin. Stretch is a desirable quality for total freedom of movement.
Waistbands and pockets
The best men's jogger shorts are those which come with an elasticated waistband, with a drawcord providing an additional bonus. The drawcord lends cinchability, meaning you can choose the snugness that's right for you. Opt for well-covered waistbands as exposed elastic can sometimes be uncomfortable against the skin. For keeping things like your wallet and phone handy, look for shorts with side slash pockets. If you're planning on exercising, you'll find a buttoned or zipped back pocket endlessly useful for stowing your house or car key or a bit of cash.
A casual building block
Whether you're chilling out at home or heading out for an adventure, styling your men's jogging shorts couldn't be simpler. If the mercury is high, simply throw on a pair of low-top sneakers and a short-sleeved T-shirt and that's all you'll need. In more unpredictable temperatures, throw on a hooded jacket for extra warmth. Either a popover style or a zip-through design will do, and look for front kangaroo and patch pockets so you've got somewhere to warm up chilly hands. Match up the colour of your shorts with the hue of your top and you've got top-to-toe coordination the easy way.
Plain or patterned?
We've seen an increase in more out-there tracksuit designs recently, with camo prints and bold side stripes appearing across the industry. These are great for making a new-season statement but if you want your jersey shorts to provide more of an all-round option, go for plain blacks and greys for adaptability.
