There are a few menswear trends that can make even the bravest of men feel slightly nervous: The pyjama print pants, the sheer shirt, floral tee’s… and then of course, there are the short shorts. Once only acceptable attire for vein footballers holidaying in Antigua, the short shorts have become a staple necessity for a sophisticated summer wardrobe.
To make them a little more masculine, sporting giant Ellesse Heritage have launched these tennis classics, entitled the Tortoreto, that will make you look cooler than Mr Danny Dyer himself in cult film The Business.
The appeal of these shorts lies in the length. Most of us don’t have the toned, professional runner legs we would like and the crop on the Tortoreto shorts means even the skinniest of legs will look a little more defined. To pull off knee length you need the calves of a god and just above the knee can make the greatest of pins look stumpy. For the ultimate in comfort, summer style and body flattering qualities, these Tortoreto shorts by Ellesse Heritage really are the only choice.
These 70s style shorts come in both white and a pastel yellow. Wear with a loose vest or t-shirt for a contemporary outfit or with a light white cotton shirt tucked in for a dapper beach ensemble. These shorts fuse cockiness and charisma with Italian elegance to produce the perfect piece for the confident man that likes to make a style statement.
