Heat waves on the east coast while the rest of the US is definitely beginning to heat up, summer is fast approaching and its time for the utilitarian in everyone of us to consider the shorts we’ll be taking into battle. Blanc & Noir have created an exception rendition of the highly debated (See GiltMANual’s discussion on shorts) yea undoubted staple to a proper summer wardrobe. Weather or not if you find shorts don’t have a proper place in the city there is no denying the need for a properly crafted pair during the most blistering of summer days. The Japanese cotton twill used by Blanc & Noir provide an lightweight and airy feel which is key for breathability and comfort. The hidden pocket closed by an minimal riri zipper enchances their short from your everyday variety enough to further distinguish from the pack. Khaki, Army and Black are the only color options which fit well in the scheme of the brands aesthetics and philosophy of design. The shorts can be had at all Blanc & Noir retailers as well as their online store.
