$70, by Flint and Tinder
Unless you live in a place where the climate is constantly hot, or are fortunate enough to find yourself traveling beachside every weekend, board shorts simply don't get a lot of wear in the average guy's wardrobe. Neither do their landlubbing counterparts, really. But what if you could have a pair of shorts that looked as sharp in the water as they do on the street? That's why we think these offerings from Flint and Tinder are true game changers. Their "All Summer Shorts" combine a basic short silhouette, complete with belt loops, mesh-lined pockets and a fly front, with a water-resistant, quick-drying, microfiber fabric. Like your favorite pair of board shorts, they're unlined so you can wear them sans underwear in the water. They also come in versatile solid colors like red, navy and gray. With their flat front and flattering cut, they may just be the last pair of shorts you ever buy.
