It seems that gone are the days of shorts protruding below the knee, whether they be cargo, checked or plaid. Looking everywhere the new styles are fitted/slimmer, shorter (slightly above the knee seems to the way forward) and range from very plain, clean-cut chino looks, denim usually of the 5 pocket variety and strong, bold, solid colors are not only great for summer but can be used to create a whole new look using your existing upper half wardrobe easily.

I don’t think this will be a short term trend for menswear either, I think this will be the stable look for menswear summer shorts for at least the next 5 years.
