When temperatures are warm, shorts ought to be your go-to. The cooler alternative (quite literally) to staple jeans and trousers, denim and cotton shorts offer a sharp and smart option for daywear, suitably adapting to your tried-and-tested wardrobe basics with effortless ease. At 883 Police, we're embracing the simplicity of cut-offs, presenting a selection of shorts for men with different cuts, fits, finishes and colourways to suit every individual style and taste. Whether you're looking for loose-fit cut-offs to keep you cool and composed in the hot summer sunshine or the smarter option of denim turn-up shorts that easily transition from day to night, there's a perfect short design for every single occasion.
Consider the event carefully: for example, if you're heading to a summer BBQ or are planning a day/night out with friends that will most probably end in the early hours, a pair of black shorts with hints of distressing is ideal. Ticking a number of different trend boxes, black distressed shorts are contemporary yet versatile, bringing you street-inspired style and easily teaming with a host of different clothing items you already own. Alternatively, if you're looking for something to accompany you on a holiday kick-around or a lounge on the beach, you can afford to be a bit more casual. Floral prints and shorter lengths are good go-to choices for these occasions, with cargo shorts in particular being a deservedly popular option with their extra pocket room.
Looser, knee-length designs provide comfort during wear, making them perfect for a lounge about or relaxing occasion; whereas slimmer-fit designs tend to be more style-led so we recommend reserving these for occasions where you want to up your urban style game. When it comes to denim shorts, make sure to avoid the common pitfall of assuming they're all the same. With a wide range of washes available, certain denim designs are naturally smarter than others and vice versa. We recommend sticking to lighter washes if the occasion is set to be casual and playing with darker washes when the day requires a neater finish. The beauty of cut-offs is that they can be treated in the same way you would a pair of jeans. This basically means that aside from tailored suit jackets and wintry outerwear, pretty much any wardrobe item goes with them. Denim cut-offs are a particularly great substitute for jeans for obvious reasons, with black and blue shorts teaming well with everything from casual graphic tees to contemporary polo shirts.
