Known for their awesome-fitting trousers, Bonobos is applying the same tactic to their line of shorts, available in a variety of fresh styles, colors and patterns.

While women have a multitude of options for style and fit, men generally have to choose between sleek, high-end pants designed for the runway or baggy, mostly-boring trousers created for the masses. Frustrated with such a limited choice, founder and designer Brian Spaly set out to construct a pair of pants for someone like himself—a real guy with a sophisticated palette.

After a few iterations and positive feedback, Spaly teamed up with college friend Andy Dunn and the duo began peddling the perfect pants online. All handmade in New York City, I had the recent opportunity to stop by their showroom to see their new collection of shorts, the latest addition to the Bonobos brand.

The shorts are similar in fit to the pants, which Spaly cuts with a more tailored thigh, a medium rise and their signature, a hand-sewn curved waistband. Available in solid colors, but we love the retro-prep look of the jovial, summertime patterns—especially the ropes pattern launched today.

Bonobos covers the cost of exchanging or returning products for all domestic customers, making it easy to try a pair out for yourself. The shorts range in price from $75-85, pants average around $120 and all are available online only.
