Plus, our men's shorts come in different length options so you can have the fit you want, either hitting at the knee or above. Cutoff short details like frayed hems, rips, tears and mending elevate your look so you have a style that looks good and well-worn no matter what you wear them with. Choose rigid denim shorts for a classic, vintage-inspired feel, or AirFlex+ shorts made to support your every move.
