With our very own Matt Allinson re-introducing you to shorts recently, and with the unexpected heat wave we’ve been experiencing, we thought it was appropriate to showcase these interesting Navy Checked Lined Cotton Shorts courtesy of Burberry Brit.
Casual yet luxurious, these shorts are a refreshing twist on a traditional style. Both the colour and fit have been kept simple – utilising a classic dark navy for the main body and a cut which sits around an inch or so above the knee – it is a style and length which is flattering and socially acceptable for the majority of men.
What makes these shorts individual and adds a real edge is the checked blue lining. This checked detailing provides this casual garment with a more luxurious feel, and allows you to subtly separate yourself from the crowd. The rolled up hem also offers you versatility, as the checked pattern can just as easily be hidden by rolling down the short hem fully. This is perfect for when you need to wear the shorts for a more refined event.
A key factor that initially drew us to these particular shorts is the price tag. Since they make up part of the Burberry Brit SS12 range, they are much more affordable and reasonably priced than the higher end Burberry ranges (such as Burberry Prorsum), making them more accessible to the everyday male looking to add a touch of individuality to their wardrobe.
