Want to liven things up this summer? Then printed patterns are your best bet. If you want your shorts to reflect your fun-in-the-sun attitude this year, then it’s time to have some fun with your wardrobe and consider switching to prints. Here are some of our favorite men’s printed shorts options at Vintage 1946! Our summer printed shorts are 100% cotton, which keeps them breathable and effective at wicking away sweat during the hottest months.
Chambray Flat Front Shorts (Pineapple)
These pineapple print shorts give your outfits a fun tropical theme. But they’re not too in-your-face. They function as comfortable shorts that you can take with you anywhere, especially if you opt for the 9” inseam version. (Click here for the shorter elastic waist version).
Poplin Flat Front Shorts (Beach)
You can’t get much more “summer” than a pair of shorts with palm trees on them! These fun poplin shorts—made from 100% cotton—are closer to classic beach and summer block party attire. They’re bright, which makes them great for reflecting heat away, and the subtle pattern still has plenty of versatility to wear in all sorts of situations. Don’t forget about the short elastic waist version for those especially hot days!
Chambray Flat Front Shorts (Palm Trees)
The subtle palm-trees-and-waves pattern might not even look like a summer print until you get close enough. That’s the appeal of these Chambray shorts. They’re fun without sacrificing the versatility you need to wear these anywhere on your next vacation—whether it’s the airport, the restaurant, the hotel, or even the beach. They also make great weekend shorts when you’re not on vacation and simply want to enjoy the 100% breezy cotton for its cooling effect. The shorter version with an elastic waistband give even more exposure to your legs for maximum cooling.
Chambray Flat Front Shorts (Branches)
The wavy front pattern of these chambray shorts is unmistakably a summer style. The modern fit and 100% cotton are great too! This chambray style can even be worn with a sharp button-down shirt if you want to dress up—or you can dress down with the elastic waist version on really hot days.
