The James Long Spring/Summer 2013 collection adds a twist to standard menswear shorts. Each pieces brandishes a series of frills, making the apparel appear to be more like skirts than cut offs.

Long gained his footing with designer Virginia Bates after attaining his MA in accessories and menswear from the Royal College of Art. His display of this Spring/Summer 2013 line at the London Collections: Men showing brought his expertise to the fore. Those who were guests at the debut witnessed the way in which he has re-interpreted leather clothing, preferring a look that showcases its elasticity. This stands in stark contrast to most animal hide pieces where are often rigid and fitted tight to the body. Stats for Frilled Short Menswear Trending: Older & Mild
