Once summertime arrives out come the hordes of men in 3/4 length trousers. I’m not entirely convinced by them, as they’re very Blue circa 2004 but the alternative are knee length schoolboy shorts which are even harder to carry off. As long as you don’t wear those awful brown leather slides that were all over the high street a couple of years ago I will let 3/4 lengths pass. This tailored pair from Marks and Spencer look quite smart and they’re well worth the £25. The crease and slim cut keeps them sharp, and they would look great with simple summer canvas shoes and a short sleeved shirt.
