While we just saw a pretty great pair of Band of Outsiders shorts recommended by South Willard on the Spring Buyers guide, here is another pair of nice and expensive shorts by the LA based label. Shorts are hard for me to get too excited about any time of the year and it seems good shorts are not easy to come by. From what I've seen, Band of Outsiders seems to have a good understanding of the proper length of a short and how it should be worn, and of course look. However spending $250 on shorts is something I would probably don't have to do, in these times especially. I don't wear shorts super often so I am personally okay with Club Monaco's selection for about $50-70. On the other side, Band of Outsiders are going to offer a refined fit, possibly better materials and definitely nicer patterns, color palettes and details like the cuffed bottom. Not to say you can't find this else where for make it happen yourself, but if Band of Outsider's looks and pieces are inspired the look you're trying to pull together, they must be doing something right.
