Summer Shorts

Shorts. Another one of my favorite garment besides sweaters. When it’s not winter, I get to wear shorts year-round in sunny California.

All three I own are Bermuda-type shorts with an approximate inseam of 5-8”:

My Brooks Brothers white Cotton Dobby Shorts are my favorite.

Ironed, they look very neat. The white twill also contrasts nicely with other colors.

The shorts’ versatility means I can wear them with polos and sleeveless tops.

Unfortunately this pair has a few unsightly stains. I still wear them, though.

The second pair — my gold brocade shorts — receives many compliments.

Flashes of gold are woven into the material.


The stand-out color makes the shorts quite feminine, but I like it. Muted-color tops are in order.


The last are a pair of nantucket red shorts from Murray’s Toggle Shop.

Of the three shorts, these Ivy-style bermudas are the most casual.

The red fades with each wash. These shorts are great for an afternoon walk.

Honorable mention includes a pair of Polo Ralph Lauren blue seersucker shorts that got a lot of wear.

I sadly got tar all over the seat and disposed them. I’m eyeing eBay for a new pair. Lesson learned!
