For as much as certain brands are known for doing one thing well (extremely well, at that), it’s refreshing to see a heritage brand like the good folks at Filson step outside of its comfort zone to produce lightweight, summer-friendly gear. Specifically, it’s cooler now than ever before to see a Pacific Northwest heritage outfitter like Filson step right up and deliver some of the best men’s shorts for summer.
You already know all about the fact that a brand like Filson makes one of the best men’s chambray shirts, not to mention equally rugged gear like the toughest winter workshirt, but thanks to the launch of the Filson Dry Falls Shorts, you can get some of the best shorts for men from your favorite rugged outfitter.
Lest this seem too good to be true, consider the rugged appeal of picking up some shorts from Filson: Especially for outdoor adventures, the brand is famed for using tough-yet-pliable fabrics, the kind that get better with age — they’ve certainly done the same thing with the Filson Dry Fall Shorts (more on that in just a second).
The key with the Filson Dry Fall Shorts starts, of course, with that famed Filson fabric and attention to detail. In this case, it’s a durable and tightly woven cotton with a hint of stretch for ease of movement. The 7-inch inseam on the Filson Dry Fall Shorts should hit above the knee for most guys, another crucial design detail if it’s easygoing movement from the trail to the watering hole that you seek.
They’re also incredibly lightweight, and Filson bills the drawcord waistband on the Filson Dry Fall Shorts as another helpful touch that helps you eliminate a belt that might slow you down (they’re absolutely correct, too!).
The Filson Dry Fall Shorts feature reinforced pockets and front stitching, another crucial touch in terms of durability, while the rear pockets are even made with Velcro flaps to ensure your everyday carry stays in place on the go. They also work for more casual pursuits — backyard beers and brewery visits come to mind — while the range of colors offers up something for every palette (my personal favorite? The eye-catching Dark Moss). Make the Filson Dry Fall Shorts your new favorite everyday summer shorts: You won’t regret it.
