Short trousers

‘Shorts’ is the technical term for short trousers that fall above the knee. There are many names for the different types of short trousers – Capri pants, Bermuda shorts and knee-lengths, to name but a few.

To make it easier for you the customer, we have split our shorts into 2 categories: those that fall above the knee (what we call shorts), and those that fall below the knee (what we call long shorts).

The short trouser model has been around for the same time as long trousers, but it has always been linked to sports activities, small boys and tropical climes. When adult men used to wear shorts, it was always with long socks that covered the entire lower leg. Fortunately, times have changed. It's not that long ago that shorts became a normal sight in both the fashion world and townscape, and they have now become a staple item in every man’s wardrobe.

Even though shorts are still a no-go in standard uniform dress, they are increasingly paired with what we would call smarter attire. They come in many fabrics and colours, and SUNWILL has chosen classic sand, army and navy shades for our range.

It’s not unusual now to combine a pair of shorts with a T-shirt and blazer, a nice shirt and tie or, even better, a bow tie.
