2/ Burberry’s ‘check for the chaps’

3/ APC multi-coloured Shorts

Should denim shorts not be so pour vous, plump for these less-than-modest pantaloons from French lifestyle label APC, who seem to be having something of a resurgence of late – or did they ever go away? £39; my-wardrobe.com

8/ Frankin & Marshall shorts

Everyone likes to get their legs out, and now you can do it just like your dad does when he’s gardening. Short shorts are unstoppable this summer, but these aren’t so short as to produce a ‘curdled milk’ expression from women. £77; franklinandmarshall.com

One of the denim nerds’ favourites nails outerwear with this wax-treated lightweight duffel that’ll see you through till it gets really cold again. Attention eco lovers: the buttons are bamboo. £259; oipolloi.com
