Beaches Optional

Orlebar Brown Monacle 10 Beach Short

In addition to the Orlebar Brown Boxer, we also got to check out the Monocle Edition ($180) of the Bulldog shorts. The new Bulldogs have an updated cut, that’s a little more forgiving in the waist and seat, as well as a new fabric which is slightly less coarse. The best part of the Monocle edition is the color(s) – we went for the green flash, and it’s even better in person. It’s nice to have character in your summer shorts without seizure-inducing patterns.

Author’s Note: As with the Bulldogs, the Boxers will not be forgiving if you don’t have a good physique. So again, be honest with yourself.
