The Wurst Outlier Shorts

Normally any connection you could make to sausage and shorts is something we’d leave up to other websites with more libidinous agendas, but in the case of Outlier Clothing, we’ll make an exception. The Wurst Outlier Short ($129) is made from Outlier’s versatile 4Season fabric in a limited blue color that feels great on the...

For a Genteel Summer

Orlebar Brown Boxer Short

Last summer we got to try out Orlebar Brown’s Bulldog ($138) short, an excellent beach/swim short. The ladies were big fans and we were too as we found the quality, well, stellar. New for this year Orlebar Brown has released two “Sport” shorts, the Boxer and Pup. Being such big fans of the Bulldogs, we...

Confirmed Cure to Swamp Ass

That’s why Slix came up with...

Take a Break from Khakis

Recently the company has expanded their line to include more everyday items that still feature the brand’s trademark clean looks and cuts. Unfortunately these more casual...

Look Good and Do Good

Greenlines Boardshorts

It seem that nowadays every clothing manufacturer under the sun sells some form of board short. Problem is, few are made with quality and worse, covered with crazy patterns and designs that may not suit everyone’s summer look (no pun intended). If you’re one of the guys dissatisfied with this trend, then Greenlines Boardshorts ($60)...

Homeland Security Approved

Cordarounds USA World Cup Pants

Guaranteed to leave no question about who you support, but maybe a couple about your style, the Cordarounds USA World Cup Pants are the most cantankerous pair of trousers we’ve ever laid eyes upon at the GP offices.

The Anti-Prep Short

Mark Mcnairy New Amsterdam Expo Shorts

Our fashion-focused friends over at Limited Hype brought these New Amsterdamn Expo Shorts by Mark Mcnairy ($164) to our attention, and what appealed to us most was their distinctive mix of casual and outdoor style. Clearly the integrated nylon belt won’t float everyone’s boat, and the same thing probably goes for their $164 price tag....

The Original Board Short

Birdwell Beach Britches have been around since 1961. One of the original “board shorts”, they’re still and have always been made in Santa Clara, CA.

Like Buttah...

Dockers Soft Khakis

I don’t exactly know when it happened. No, I don’t mean when the Saints and Colts became viable football powerhouses. What I don’t know is when khakis lost the “ubiquitous pants” battle to denim. In middle and high school, khakis ruled and jeans were trashy or too casual. Then, I woke up one morning and...
