When the weather warms up, the first thing we pull out of the drawer is a pair of shorts. For casual wear, sports and workouts, start with the right style. Drawstring shorts are popular for both their casual style and comfort. What could be a easier than a waistband that adjusts with a drawstring? For activities like golf, a tailored pair of lightweight shorts is just the thing. Add side pockets and small hidden key pockets and you're hands-free all day. When the temperature heats up, whether on the basketball court or anywhere else you break a sweat, mesh shorts will keep you cool. Open mesh on the outside and breathable fabric lining wicks away moisture. Mesh activewear is typically made of nylon, which is soft, lightweight and hard-wearing. For serious rigorous activity, many men prefer compression shorts. Compression aids muscle performance and reduces fatigue, and the high-tech fabric is breathable and smooth.
