Shorts?- summer wear 4 men

So! Summer is right around the corner and I was thinking about purchasing some shorts for summer before season rolls in and the prices all get spiked high.
I was wondering if you guys had any inputs on what are good summer wears for men?

HERE'S MY LIST OF SHORTS THAT I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT:

Firstly, the infamous denim shorts- Obviously I'm not cool enough to wear them with the ultimate socks+ sandal combo, but what if I wear sneakers and buy tts instead of size 45? yes/no

Secondly, capris- They are slightly longer than shorts. Pretty easy to pull off with sneakers. yes/no

Thirdly, the classic cotton shorts- Just shorts with whatever pocket and graphics. They will probably be able to just cover the knee; to be worn with sneakers as well. yes/no

Summer is a time to wear sneakers but anything goes well with sneakers!
I can't think of any other types of bottom wear, but maybe they look really good so post 'em below!

Can't wait for summer

Cotton shorts are the best imo.

Please don't wear capris.

Loose fitting cargo shorts are an easy option, everyone seems to wear those. Or you can also go with slimmer fitting, flat front shorts. You can get them in plaid, pinstriped, or just solid colours. Like these. They should hit just above your knees; don't wear them covering the knees like board shorts!

I personally stay away from denim shorts; I can't pull them off.

plaid shorts are good.

i'd recommend wearing cargo shorts only if you're under 20, or in a frat.

Summah? It's not even spring yet! LOL. Especially since it snowed at SFU today.
Please don't wear capris, or jhorts.

Honestly I feel sorry for men, the only real alternative for shorts are the cotton ones worn to just cover the knee(cargo ones) IMO Anything else makes a guy look like a douche IMO of course

No capris
No Jorts (jean shorts)

chino, plaid/madras and the "right" cargo shorts are all I will wear...today.

Length wise, I go for right above or just touching the knee.

I agree.... cargo, flat front khaki's or flat front plaid. J Crew has some good options. Jean shorts and capri's are not attractive. If you're going to wear sneakers with them please don't wear brite white sneakers or big and bulky sneakers. Slim sneakers without socks or socks that don't show look best with shorts or flip flops.

I second this... no jorts!

Cotton/khaki type shorts are reasonable.

My boyfriend wears a lot of cargo shorts but I support this. Not stylish, but it means I can give him my stuff and I don't have to carry a purse.

Are you planning on cross-dressing this summer? Capris are for women.

Boy...

Speaking as mr. hairy leg dude, I'll wear shorts when I'm dead.

Light weight jeans is what I wear during the summer. The only alternative I see are board shorts, and only at the beach.

Just IMO.

Guys shouldn't wear shorts.
Just wear lightweight & light colored beat up jeans!
