Get in the Summer Spirit with These Denim Shorts for Men

The Rivet 50 is calling for nominations for leaders in the denim industry in 5 categories: design, influencer, leadership, sustainability and supply chain. Nominations close on May 23.

The warmer months have touched down, causing many to dig through their closets for knee-baring styles—only to find that last summer’s wardrobe needs a refresh.

Shorts have a permanent place in spring and summer assortments, but the staple is proving to be gangbusters for denim brands and retailers this season as consumers settle into more casual fashion suitable for their new work-from-home lifestyles. A recent report by retail data analytics company Edited said the number of options selling out for men’s wear increased by 55 percent compared to last year.

Whether you’re in the backyard grilling or walking through the city, these styles will keep you cool and fashionable all season long.
