Sand Polo and Navy Shorts

Micro Pique Polo in Sand

Polo shirts and golf shorts are a classic combination. This is an outfit that will serve you well on the links, but it could nicely transition to an evening barbeque or a night out at a casual bar or restaurant. The features of these golf shorts – including a generous 10’’ inseam and performance fabric – make them comfortable for a variety of casual summer activities. The polo shirt offers a great feel with a lightweight pique knit and a material that blends polyester and rayon. 

Teal Tee and Port Shorts

 Micrograph Sport Short Port

Garment Dyed Slub Pocket Tee


For shorts that are up for just about anything, our sport shorts are hard to beat. This version is offered in a beautiful port color that falls somewhere between red and purple. With only a 7.5’’ inseam, these are short enough to keep you cool on hot days while remaining comfortable. Also, the quick dry fabric featured in these shorts means you can get them wet and not worry about feeling bogged down for the rest of the day.

To pair with these shorts, we’ve selected our Garment Dyed Slub Pocket Tee in Teal – although many of the colors offered in this tee would work nicely, as well. This is a solid all-around cotton tee made of a lightweight slub fabric. A great shirt for going out on the water, you can easily slip this one off when going for a swim and it will feel great when you put it back on after getting out of the water.

White Crew Neck Tee and Coral Shorts


Negative Slub Pocket Crew Neck


For this outfit, we’ve chosen a bold shorts color that you can use to make a statement. Our Stretch Snappers always look sharp in the summer, and that’s certainly true when you opt for the bold coral color. With a 5.5’’ inseam, you’ll leave plenty of leg exposed while enjoying the feel of a mostly cotton material. The elastic waist on this pair of shorts keeps them as comfortable as they are fashionable.

By going with such a bold color for the shorts, we’ve decided to pair them with a clean white t-shirt. This is a crew neck design that has a left chest pocket and is made with 100% cotton. This t-shirt will play a solid supporting role while the shorts are the star of the show.

Madras Short Sleeve Shirt and Black Shorts



The plan with this outfit is the opposite of the previous pair of shirt and shorts. In this case, it’s the shirt that does all the talking while the shorts are in a supporting role. That shirt is a button-up short sleeve Madras garment that uses pink as its main color. 100% cotton and acid-washed, this shirt stays firmly in the casual category while still dressing up a bit from a standard t-shirt.

A nice partner for that head-turning shirt would be our Space Dyed Himalayan shorts in black. Features of these shorts include a 10’’ inseam, a blended stretch material, and two rear pockets. While the shorts might not draw as much attention as the shirt, you are still sure to love their look and feel.

Short Sleeve Henley with Floral Shorts



For our last outfit, let’s have a little fun! We recognize that this pairing won’t be for everyone, but those who like to turn heads with their apparel will love the lighthearted, fun vibe of this outfit. The shirt is a comfortable Negative Slub Henley with three buttons and a crew neck. The Island Paradise color is a shade of light blue that is perfect for summer evenings.

As nice as the shirt is, it may go largely unnoticed compared to these bold shorts. A floral palm pattern that is anything but boring will be sure to start a few conversations throughout the day. Aside from the look of these shorts, they offer plenty of performance benefits, like interior mesh pocketing, a stretch quick dry fabric, and a 9’’ inseam.
