No one’s saluted shorts as fervently as the cast of characters at Camp Anawanna, but hemlines have been on the rise in menswear, especially for spring and summer. Above-the-knee navy shorts are a staple in affordable shops like Gap, and designers like Orley are making them runway-ready. Prefer to wear the pants? Linen adds a breathable element to your trousers, and looks better when it’s lived in and wrinkled, while cotton chinos provide a welcome balance of clean lines and classic summer style.
