The Tuesday Steal: Get Your Go-to Summer Shorts for Under $40 at Myles Apparel

Best hybrid shorts for men.

From time to time, a guy just needs a pair of casual, stylish yet performance-minded shorts. It’s not rocket science, right? Shorts you can move around in easily, shorts you can wear on a hike or even to the track, shorts you can throw on at a moment’s notice and dash out to grab a weekend coffee. That’s where today’s Tuesday Steal enters the equation, my friends: The Myles Apparel Momentum Shorts are yours for the taking, with all the versatility and go-anywhere performance you could hope to enjoy. The best part? Your new favorite casual shorts are now 50 percent off at the Myles Apparel Surplus Sale.

Best men's shorts for summer.

Perhaps you know Myles Apparel from its penchant for making the best performance pants on the market, and the Myles Apparel Momentum Shorts live up to that billing, too. They’re some of the best hybrid shorts around, and while they’re not quite dressy enough to wear with more formal-leaning summer style staples (like a white polo and leather loafers), they’re versatile enough to wear with your favorite T-shirt and canvas sneakers, for instance.

The key is the four-way-stretch, lightweight and water-repellent fabric, and of course, it doesn’t hurt that you can select from either 6-inch or 8-inch inseam options. When a guy just needs a pair of simple yet ready-for-anything shorts, you know exactly the pair to buy from Myles Apparel.

The Friday Read: New Spring Gear from KUHL, Watches and Wonders 2022 & A Myles Apparel Sale

KUHL gear review.

Has there ever been a better time than right now — an early spring weekend — to embrace a return to the great outdoors? Even if the “great outdoors” happens to be, say, your favorite local park, the right rugged menswear — like the best performance gear from Utah-based brand KUHL — goes a long, long way. If you’re not familiar with KUHL, now is also a great time to get acquainted. They make premium, eco-conscious picks, like the best men’s waxed jacket, durable hiking pants or soft flannel shirting — and they do it all with an ethos that your clothes should last a long time and look great no matter where you go.

It’s an inspiring approach, one that I love — I love it so much, in fact, that I featured KUHL in my guide to the best waxed jackets for spring at AskMen. I think you’ll love ’em as much as I do, so take a look and let me know if you like what you see. So, with that new gear recommendation in mind, I think it’s high time we got the rest of this weekend’s Friday Read rolling.

You can venture back here tomorrow for the latest Style Pick of the Week, and in the meantime, I’ll also be working on new content for sites like SPY. I’m doing it all, of course, before I head north to Boston to see legendary NYC dance rockers LCD Soundsystem play two shows at Boston’s newest venue, Roadrunner. Follow me on Instagram to keep up with all of the fun, and keep your weekend moving swiftly in style with the rest of my top picks.

Myles Apparel menswear review.
  • Here’s another gear recommendation you’ll love if you’ve been wanting to get back out there in style.

Current sale pieces are also now going for up to 75 percent off. Now through Sunday, shop and save on standout gear, my friends.
Billy Reid spring menswear.
  • As the headline mentions, it’s been a big, big week in the world of watches, all thanks to the 2022 edition of the luxury watch trade show Watches & Wonders. It’s the best way possible to see an array of astoundingly cool new releases from the world’s top watch brands, and on that note, I wrote about the best new Rolex watches — with input from none other than the watch experts at Bob’s Watches. Check it out at Maxim and add a watch or two to your wish list.

That trio of reading and shopping selections will bring this week’s edition of the Friday Read to a close. Do you have any new items on your wish list or in your virtual shopping cart already? I certainly hope so, whether it’s a pick from the Myles Apparel Spring Sale or something from the endlessly cool Billy Reid Spring 2022 Collection. Let me know in the comments what you’re picking up, and here’s to a safe and stylish spring weekend.

Style Pick of the Week: Myles Apparel Tour Pants – The Best Performance Pants to Wear Anywhere

The best men's performance pants to buy now.

These days, there’s hardly a scenario where comfort and style don’t go hand in hand, seeing as you’re probably spending a bit less time at the office and a bit more time at home or on the road, dressed casually. This is where you need a pair of pants made with both utility and style in mind: A pair of pants like, well, the Myles Apparel Tour Pants, which just so happen to hit the sweet spot as far as the best performance pants for men are concerned. They’re a perfect hybrid when you need a classier option that sweatpants, yet want the comfort of a pair of stretch jeans or chinos.

In fact, the Myles Apparel Tour Pants — coming from a brand that already makes one of the best performance hoodies and offers up some of the best deals on performance gear — are akin to a more modern take on chinos or five-pocket pants, and this is very good news indeed for you, my friend. And if you’re still coming around on the idea of swapping out your classic blue jeans for a pair of stretch performance pants, know that you can try Myles Apparel for free at home for seven days before you buy. How’s that for practicality, functionality and style? Another bonus: You get free U.S. shipping on orders over $100.

The best stretch five-pocket performance pants for men.

The specs on the Myles Apparel Tour Pants are exactly what you need if you want to ease your way into looking sharp and yet feeling comfortable all day long. They’re made with a quick-drying stretch woven twill fabric, all the better to keep you cool on day hikes, your commute or long weekends on the road. It only gets better from there with the Myles Apparel Tour Pants, because — even more incredibly — they’re made to resist wrinkles and stains, not to mention water (thanks to the Durable Water Repellent finish). You’re also getting a plethora of pockets for everyday carry essentials with the Myles Apparel Tour Pants, including a hidden phone pocket and a zip passport or wallet pocket.

Plus, the front pockets themselves — cut with a slanted finish for easy access — are nicely oversized to allow for maximum EDC storage. Even the waistband on the Myles Apparel Tour Pants features a special touch: A stay-grip design that keeps your shirts tucked in for a clean finish. If it seems as if Myles Apparel thought of everything with these pants, it’s because, well, they certainly did. The Myles Apparel Tour Pants are also available in a whopping nine colors, all the better to suit any palette. And the quick-drying stretch fabric means these are an easily wearable pair of four-season pants, whether you rock ’em now with your favorite henley or whether you keep them close at hand to wear with an American-made Oxford shirt come spring and summer. The only thing you’ve got to worry about now? Picking out your favorite color.

I previously wrote about Stinson’s career in The Replacements, and my love of the band, over at InsideHook. Now, I won’t be covering the show, but I’ll be enjoying tunes safely all the same, and I’ll be packing some of my favorite travel menswear and gear, too. To keep up with all of the action, be sure to follow me on Instagram. In the meantime, let’s get to the rest of today’s Friday Read!

It’s another lovely summer Friday in Brooklyn, but it’s hard not to pay attention to the news elsewhere — thank you for taking time out of your day to head on over here … seriously. When I spend too much time scrolling, I try to step back and put on some soulful music. Lately, that’s meant revisiting albums by Michigan’s Lord Huron (as mentioned in my newsletter!). I can’t recommend the lilting, beautiful stylings of frontman Ben Schneider & co. enough. I’ll be listening to the band this weekend as I explore Brooklyn, grab some brews at the lauded Threes Brewing, and of course, test out all my gear from Myles Apparel. Sound like a plan to you? Alright, alright. Before you kick off your own weekend, check out more from my neck of the woods below. Thanks for reading!

As ever, you’re going to want to head to my ongoing series The List, where I recently wrote about the 20 best men’s style essentials for whatever you’ve got in store this season. From a new camp shirt to a rugged Timex x Todd Snyder watch and some classic summer sneakers, I hope I covered all the bases.

Online Shopping Picks: The Top Shorts to Buy for Summer

Stylish shorts — simple enough, right? Wrong. The top shorts to buy for summer are a far cry from the athletic shorts many of us grew accustomed to through high school … and college … and hey, after college. Coming from a guy who loves  a pair of slim light wash denim (even in the summer), it’s still crucial to not let your casual style slip up — and well-fitting, well-made shorts in seasonally friendly fabrics are one way to stay in shipshape. After all, you can wear a pair of stylish men’s shorts with nearly any of your other favorite summer style essentials — from a classic Oxford to a patterned short-sleeve shirt. That goes for lightweight layering pieces, too — a tailored pair of shorts, cut to hit above the knee, can serve as a complement to a light wash trucker jacket, a rugged short-sleeve henley and essential summer sneakers. And if you’ve read my work over at Effortless Gent, you know that it can sometimes be tricky to find the perfect pair of shorts — that goes for both fit and style potential. Know that the below picks cover off on both key ares quite nicely. Heck, even a few of the picks you’ll see below — like the Myles Apparel Everyday Short   — can work on an outdoor hike or at a laidback BBQ.  To see how I’m wearing shorts this summer, join me on Instagram; if you think I left out any brands, let me know in the comments. Cheers!

Oxfords under $50 CAD_125x125

#1. Finisterre Coverack Shorts — $72.98


The Coverack Shorts are a bit pricey — but all the more stylish and essential for it.

While it’s tough to list out just one pair of shorts in this top spot, it’s something we gotta do. And for my money, the quality, value and classic style of these Finisterre Coverack Shorts is pretty tough to top. From the easy-to-wear shade of khaki on the Coverack Shorts to laidback design touches like a garment-dyed finishing process, they should go with just about anything. Try ’em out with a light blue polo and sharp white sneakers (plus a tough dive watch) for go- anywhere weekend style.

#2. Myles Apparel Everyday Short — $58

A nicely tailored, mobile pair of shorts fit for the gym or a backyard BBQ.

We told you that our picks for stylish shorts would work at more casual summer functions as well as athletic pursuits — right? Right. The Myles Apparel Everyday Short    comes in a host of colors and features a tailored-yet-mobile fit more commonly found on athletic shorts. Yet, it eschews the gaudy logos you often see on athletic shorts — consider this gym gear for the grown man (or tall teenager). You can easily throw these on for a casual stroll through the park or your morning run — of course. And with all those color options, you might want more than one pair.

#3. Topo Designs Mountain Shorts — $69.98

Topo Designs

For the guy who values function and form, the Topo Designs Mountain Shorts are the pair to buy.

When it comes to shorts — or menswear in general — are you  more of a technically inclined guy? Just as likely to focus on the durability and fabric quality as the fit? In that case, the Topo Designs Mountain Shorts were made for you — to say the least. From the ripstop cotton construction to the top-stitched front pockets — that means more room for your everyday carry — to the selection of stylish colors (including an olive option), you need the Topo Designs Mountain Shorts in your life for your next hike or camping trip.

#4. Abercrombie and Fitch Flat Front Shorts — $28.80

Abercrombie and Fitch

Stretch chino shorts in a neat spring color — perfect for the season ahead.

It’s nearly a menswear fact — at least to your Style Guide editor — that you can’t go wrong with a pair of stretch cotton chino shorts in a 7-inch inseam. Why so specific? Well, the inseam length works for most guys — and the neat color and fabric? Those are perfect summer style moves. Try out these shorts with a slim-fit white polo and stylish, retro-inspired sunglasses — try it out on a first or second date for maximum effect, fellas.




#5. Iron and Resin Logan Shorts — $74.98 OR Pistol Lake French Terry Sweatshorts — $65

Iron and Resin Logan Shorts

Two options, both featuring a drawstring waistband and a modern fit.

Want the feel of your favorite, broken-in, easy-to-wear pair of shorts? Better yet, want that in a silhouette that’s much more polished than you might expect? That’s what you’re getting with the Iron and Resin Logan Shorts, a distinctly summer-friendly offering from a brand known for its rugged motorcycle gear. And the Pistol Lake French Terry Sweatshorts  are an old Style Guide favorite — remember this 2015 Style Pick of the Week feature? Of course you do. Wear those to the gym or to a beach bonfire — it’s as easy as that.

Honorable Mention: Cory Vines Path Shorts  — $37.98

Slick, stylish and effective gym shorts for under $40? Sign me up.

For the guy who appreciates reliable, affordable and hard-wearing performance shorts, look no further than the Cory Vines Path Shorts. These shorts blend lightweight mesh with neutral colorways, an excellent price and a fit that hits above the knee — another reliable option for gym shorts or heck, errand-running, beach-strolling, park-walking shorts. And hey, for under $40? That puts the Cory Vines Path Shorts just about on my list of the top shorts to buy for summer.


Is your shopping cart filled up with stylish shorts for summer? Maybe more than one pair? Across the board, it’s perhaps easier than ever to get reliable shorts in a modern cut made from excellent fabric — take picks like the more tailored  Finisterre Coverack Shorts or the more casual Iron and Resin Logan Shorts. And when one considers the seamless blend of athletic functionality and style that something like the  Myles Apparel Everyday Short    brings to the table, it’s not as tricky as it once was to upgrade your game across the board. Throw in classic picks from the likes of Abercrombie and Fitch and Pistol Lake — plus the quietly good Cory Vines Path Shorts — and you’re set for any shorts-wearing situation you can dream up. If you’d like to offer up your thoughts on this list, join me on Twitter.

For now — happy shopping and stay stylish!
