When it’s a sunny weekend and you’ve got things to do, you need a pair of shorts that’s practical, flattering, and comfortable. Men’s cargo shorts are ideal for days when you want to visit the shops, fix things around the house, and then head out for a barbecue with friends. In this guide, we’ll explain how to find a pair of cargo shorts that fit well but also makes you look great at the same time.

Finding the right fit

Even though it might be tempting to choose a baggy pair of cargo shorts that goes well below your knees (so much extra pocket space!), you need to think if this looks good with the proportions of your body.

The length of the shorts you choose is a matter of personal preference, but they should generally fall just above the knee: a 6” or 7” inseam is usually best for guys whose height is around average. If they are too long, they may look bulky and unflattering.

The cargo shorts should fit comfortably around your waist without being too tight or loose and be roomy enough to allow for easy movement, but not so baggy that they look ill-fitting.

What kind of shirts work with cargo shorts?

Cargo shorts are, by nature, a relaxed garment – they’re not suitable for offices or formal events. When styling cargo shorts, stick to t-shirts and casual shirts. You can also accessorise with a bucket hat and a light jacket. Check out our full range of men’s clothing for more inspiration.

Finding footwear to match your cargo shorts

The key to rocking cargo shorts is to choose a relaxed style of footwear. If you’re dressing for a casual event, men’s black cargo shorts can be dressed up with a pair of leather loafers.

A classic pair of men’s sneakers is another winner when it comes to wearing cargo shorts with flair. Alternatively, on hot days, stay cool with a stylish pair of sandals – perfect for wearing for leisurely strolls along the beach.
