These shorts aren’t for everyone. We thought we’d get there before anyone else did. The ‘setter’ shorts are the shortest of Orlebar Brown’s short collection, but we think that – assuming you can pull it off – they’ll look the best at the pool. We repeat, at the pool. There’s nothing more obscene than a man walking around town in ridiculously short shorts.
Orlebar Brown are a refreshingly old school company that have received a new school lick of paint. This much is obvious from the fact that they’ve got testimonials on their site when people stopped believing online testimonials ages ago. They’ve also collaborated with Monocle in the past, so if it’s good enough for the multi-accented one, it’s good enough for you. You can get this from The Shop at Bluebird or their website.
