Nothing heralds the arrival of spring quite like a thin layer of perspiration building up between your legs and jeans. Hence, for the sweat-prone among us, it's time to address the need for shorts.

The fact that it's only April means any man considering his first outing in shorts needs to tread carefully, as busting out your hams at this early stage in the year can cause serious alarm. First, ensure it's warm enough that others won't question your sanity. Then, instead of opting for a pair that says 'Ibiza beach party', go for a subtle denim pair.

Finally, dream big and pull off double denim like a pro in this hooded denim jacket, and kick the look forward with a pair of boxfresh Nike Air Max.
