If you’re like me, your life is hectic. It’s random and busy. You need to be prepared for what the day throws at you. That’s why the Myles Apparel Every Day Shorts are the perfect shorts for summer. Put these shorts on in the morning and you are ready for the day.
Keep reading to find out why I love them and you will, too.
Who Is Myles Apparel?
Myles Apparel started in San Francisco by friends who wanted to change the way activewear looked and performed.
They believed you shouldn’t have to change clothes when you go from one activity to another. You could ride a bike or go for a hike, then go out to happy hour without looking completely out of place.
Through continual testing and design tweaks, they’ve designed clothes that are flexible enough to do what you need them to do.
Myles Apparel focuses on reducing its environmental impact. To do this, they’ve started the Extra Myles program.
Did you know over 15 million tons of textiles are sent to landfills every year in the United States? The average American throws away nearly 80 pounds of clothing a year. Depending on the material, those clothes can take decades to decompose.
Here’s how the Extra Myles program works.
If you’ve got a piece of their clothing, that’s reached the end of its life, you contact Myles and they will send you a prepaid shipping label for The Renewal Workshop.
Once your package arrives at The Renewal Workshop, they deep clean the garment and try to repair it for resale. If they can’t, they take the usable parts (zippers, drawstrings, etc.) and sell them to designers to make new products.
They then sent the unsalvageable material to recyclers to be given another life as new textiles.
On top of that, Myles Apparel will send you a 10% off coupon for your next order.
If you’re concerned about your environmental footprint, you can feel good about buying from Myles Apparel because they feel the same way you do.
Now let’s dig into why these shorts are perfect for summer.
The shorts that are being reviewed today are the Everyday Shorts in the River blue color, size medium with a 10-inch inseam. The River blue cover is not quite a true navy blue. You can see in the photos how it looks different in contrast to lighting.
I am 6 foot and 190lbs.
I live in Texas where summer is to be endured. 100-degree weather vacations here. I’m grateful for everyday under 100.
Surviving summer means you need to be comfortable. Comfort means lightweight and airy clothing.
The Details That Make The Myles Apparel Every Day Shorts Work
There’s an old architectural adage, “form follows function.” Architect Frank Lloyd Wright felt that the idea was close but wasn’t quite right. He thought, “form and function are one.”
I don’t know if the designers at Myles Apparel had Frank Lloyd Wright in mind when they set out to design the Everyday Shorts, but they developed a pair of shorts that embody his idea of “form and function are one.”
If you set out to make the perfect summer shorts, then you need to think about how they will be used. They designed these shorts with the wearer in mind.
Let’s start with some details that stand out.
Fit And Features
First and most important is the 4-way stretch. They are made of 88% Nylon and 12% Spandex.
These shorts move with you.
No matter what you’re doing these shorts respond. The 4-way stretch along with the elastic band makes these shorts exceedingly comfortable.
I debated making the second feature number one because it was so important to me when I decided on the Everyday Short.
It’s the button snap back pocket. If I’m going for a run or hike, I need some place to keep my valuables. The back pocket is deep enough for my phone without it bouncing around too much. I don’t worry about my keys or wallet falling out either.
The front pockets don’t have a button or a zipper, but they are deep enough to fit my Galaxy Note 9 with no bulge.
Speaking of the front pockets, Myles Apparel calls the mesh that’s used in them “bounce proof ballistic”. I’m not sure what that means, but the pockets definitely don’t bounce around like they would on regular athletic shorts.
These shorts are water repellent. Admittedly, I haven’t tested them out in a monsoon, but I have put them on to run out to the grocery store in the rain and they held up just fine. Much better than chino shorts, for example.
Finally, another reason to love the Everyday Short is that they have a tailored fit. These aren’t the baggy shorts you see everyone else wearing at the gym.
I feel comfortable saying that you will be ok if you spill something like tea, coffee, or soda on them. If it’s something oily, you’ll want to spot spray them and throw them in the wash.
P.S. Swooshing. We want to know about the swooshing!
The swooshing when you walk is minimal. It’s not noticeable and not something to worry about.
Unlike this guy.
When To Wear?
With the Everyday Shorts, you can wear them every day. Seriously. Every day.
How are you spending your day?
Working from home? Throw them on.
Lounging on the weekend? Perfect.
Need to get out and get some sunshine? They’re breezy. It’s a match made in heaven.
How about getting some exercise? They perform no matter if you are bike riding, running, lifting, or doing yoga. These are elevated, styled shorts that are perfect for breaking a sweat.
Casual date night? Throw them on with a polo or casual button-down and you’re good to go.
Wrapping Up: What Are You Waiting For?
I hope I’ve properly conveyed how great these shorts are.
They’re flexible while allowing you to keep your keys, wallet, and phone safe and secure.
These shorts are exceedingly comfortable no matter if you’re watching Netflix or going for a run.
They work when dressed up a little more, too.
They combine the best of both chino shorts and activewear.
If you’re looking for the perfect shorts for summer, the Myles Apparel Every Day Shorts has everything you’re looking for and more.
My only problem is that I currently have one pair and wish I had more.
