The Guide to Designer Shorts for Men

Shorts are on the go-to pieces of men’s fashion for every season and are part of every trend from athleisure to the preppy New England style. Our guide is here to help you break down the selection of different men’s designer shorts to help you find the best ones for you.


The most relaxed style of designer shorts for men are the classic track-shorts can be worn both while off-the-clock or at the gym. This laid back style is given the street-style treatment by Heron Preston with their logo patch track shorts. Meanwhile, Givenchy has updated the classic fitted black track-shorts with their calligraphic logo for the man who likes to put a twist on a timeless piece.

Denim Shorts

These are the perfect shorts for the man who lives in jeans. Dsquared2 are the standout brand for this type of men’s designer shorts. Their range includes distressed denim shorts that offer early 2000s nostalgia and acid-wash denim jeans for the hypebeast who wants to also embrace the logo-mania trend.

Printed Shorts

Versace is the king of the print, and that is also for men’s designer shorts. Their baroque print shorts are a staple of the fashion house and embody the boujee style that is synonymous with Versace. Palm Angels also focus heavily on printed shorts, with their tiger-print mesh track shorts allowing you to embrace your inner Rocky.

Swim Shorts

We couldn’t write a guide for men’s designer shorts without including the classic swim shorts. These are a great entry-level piece for luxury fashion to wear at the poolside or the beach. The Burberry check drawcord swim shorts are instantly recognizable, while the Gucci Web swim shorts offer a more minimalistic option if you want to keep your look low-key.
