Now that the stubborn New York spring weather is hitting somewhere between 60 and 80 on the regular, the guys of DT have pretty much had it with their full length jeans. From work to brunch to a weekend at the beach, you need men’s denim shorts (and excellent shorts cut in a few other materials) to keep you on the move. Here are our top picks for men’s shorts.
When it comes to completing (or growing, if you never plan to “complete” it, as in our case!) a denim wardrobe, it’s best to think outside of the jean. Denim and chambray are two amazing fabrics that can create not only classic jean silhouettes, but must-have pieces like denim vests, dresses, and even shoes. Some of our favorite denim pieces on the market right now, aren’t jeans at all! Check out these 9 denim essentials below, and prepare to amp up your denim game this week.

Doctrine jeans is already really good at denim, but they’re getting really good at fashion separates too. When we caught up with them at Coterie, details like scalloped edges and built-in tie-belts in chambray shorts were a pretty big step towards “super cute/could even turn sexy” fashion-forward sportswear. We also saw soft vintage-inspired flares and straight legs that were just as much office-wear as they were ready for an evening downtown at Schiller’s—and most notably, totally on-trend and exciting. We love these two pieces from the spring 2012 lookbook—a pair of “skinny slouch” boyfriend jeans and the adorable aforementioned scalloped hem shorts. Two bound-to-be best sellers? We say yes.
