What Makes a Great Pair of Lounge Shorts?
When picking any clothing garment, it’s essential to think about what you are going to do in that garment. So, for lounge shorts, the targeted activity is simply relaxing with family and friends – or even at home by yourself. Here are a few characteristics to look for in a lounge short:
- Relaxed fit. Few people would describe tight shorts as comfortable for lounging. Sure, you might want to own some shorts that fit rather tightly for a clean, modern look when going out, but lounge shorts should be relaxed and easy to slip on and off. You could look for shorts that are specifically intended to have a roomy fit, or you could just order one size up when you plan to use the shorts for lounging around the house.
- Comfortable waistband. Whether talking about pants or shorts, the waistband on a garment is going to have a lot to do with how comfortable that piece is to wear throughout the day. For example, our Windjammer Hybrid Shorts include an elastic waist with a drawstring, making them extremely comfortable for lounging, in addition to other activities.
- Lightweight material. The material used to create a pair of shorts is another important element in the comfort those shorts deliver. For summer lounging, you’ll want something lightweight that offers a bit of stretch. The Micrograph Sport Shorts we offer use a material that is 90% Polyester and 10% Spandex, a combination that leads to that lightweight and stretchy feel that is ideal for summer relaxation.
While the three points above are a good starting point in your search for lounge shorts, comfort is a matter of individual taste. You might find that tighter shorts are actually more comfortable for you than a relaxed fit pair, so you could look for that characteristic as you shop. Think about what your ideal pair of lounge shorts would feel like and then find the right traits in any pair that you decide to order.
A Matter of Length
Another variable in your lounge shorts selection process is inseam length. Perhaps more than any other point we’ve mentioned, this one is really going to come down to personal preference. Some men find shorter inseam shorts to be more comfortable, while others prefer to have a little more coverage.
At Vintage 1946, we offer styles to suit all tastes. On the short inseam side of this debate, our Stretch Snappers have just a 5.5’’ inseam, which will fit rather short on most men. At the other end of the spectrum, our Himalayan Shorts feature a 10’’ inseam, which will run down near the knee or beyond, depending on height. There is no right or wrong here, but inseam length is an important point to consider when finding your ideal men’s lounge shorts.
Making a Smooth Transition
It’s unlikely that you will spend too many of your summer days just sitting around lounging. In addition to work obligations, you probably have plenty of other things on your agenda – so buying shorts that are flexible enough to do a little bit of everything is ideal.
As you shop for lounge shorts at Vintage 1946, take note of the many performance features included in our various models. Do you want your lounge shorts to also be suitable for a day playing golf on the links? Or maybe you like to spend time on the water during the day before returning home to relax and unwind. Whatever the case, our shorts are designed with the idea that they can be used in many different settings to keep up with everything you love about summer.
