Short wearing rules

  • The shorts can’t be too long — 1 to 2 inches above the knee or else you’ll look shorter and your calves will look small. Also don’t go super short.
  • Make sure the rise is right so you don’t have a big, baggy crotch.
  • Your shorts shouldn’t be baggy either — you need a short that hugs your thigh.
  • A lighter weight fabric will look and feel better.
  • Check out Alpha’s new shorts as well as the pair that doesn’t fit him (style deal-breaker!).

Chinos wearing rules

  • Chinos are different from khakis which are harder pressed and not so deconstructed.
  • Chinos need to be slim fit, with low to medium rise, and hug your thigh.
  • Give your chinos one or two cuffs at the ankle to make your chinos springtime fresh.

How to style your shorts

  • Simple white pocket tee  + white minimal sneakers or retro sneakers
  • Polo + sockless loafers elevate the outfit from sexy cool to badboy sexy
  • White oxford (tucked in) + sockless loafers + belt

How to style your chinos

  • Cuff the chinos + simple white pocket tee + denim jacket + white minimal sneakers
  • White polo + double monks + fabric belt
  • Lightweight colored short sleeve shirt + sockless loafers + matching belt
