THERE IS one sure fire way to avoid coming up short this summer plump for Orlebar Brown shorts, the cult American label has hit town and what an impact.
The stand out designs of the OB Bulldog shorts are timeless, classic and, well, just feast your eyes on them.
The 23-piece pattern used for the shorts, which are made of quick drying polyamide with a polyester lining.
They have a non-elastic waistband, with adjustable engraved side fasteners, zip fly, two side front pockets and a zip rear one, with zip fastener and metal popper.
The Bulldog shorts come in red and navy, and the fantastic spiral blue, but this is a beach short, not a swim trunk, while the sky swim shorts are a similar design to the bulldog, coming in a lighter colour.
Rounding off the set comes the slightly longer Dane tailored board short, in navy.
The metal waistband fasteners are gone for a sleeker short design, with an internal drawstring. The Dane is more of an all round short, from surf to turf if you like.
The shorts ring of LA Seventies class, cocktails and summer pool parties.
Things are definitely heating up this year.
