Gay men love their shorts – after all, what better way to show off your best asset, i.e., the ass, while still looking decent and respectable? There really is no downside to a good pair of gay shorts – except perhaps finding one that looks good and feels great to wear without having to turn your pockets inside out.

A good pair of shorts are a wardrobe staple that can be worn everywhere from the beach to a party and even for a quick stroll, so there’s nothing wrong with investing good money into getting some that don’t make you look and feel like you’re wearing your granny’s bloomers when you put it on.

At the same time, you shouldn’t have to live off potatoes and tap water just because you bought a good pair. With so many options out there, you might be spoiled for choice and overwhelmed when you go shopping, so I’ve put together a list of the best gay shorts that you guys absolutely have to lay their hands in this summer.

You’ve got to act quickly, though; with such little time left until the sun comes out and gays everywhere hit the beaches and clubs and raves from Fort lauderdale to Sitges, you just might find that every item in this list will be sold out in the time it takes you to make up your mind.

Leather-Look Cruise Shorts

Parties can happen anywhere, and let’s be honest, cruise parties are the funniest. But unless you’re on one of those fancy mega-ton ships with names like Empress of The Sea or The Magnificence Of Man, they are unlikely to have a boutique on board, so it’s important to pack for the occasion. These gay cruise shorts fit the bill.

Made from a hundred percent polyester material, they look and feel like leather but are much more affordable and less controversial. Although they are billed like cruise shorts, they can actually be worn to all kinds of parties; especially leather fetishized scenes of the type we love in Gay Berlin and Antwerp. They’ve got a slight shine to them, so even in muted light; they still stand out. The fabric is black, but it’s got contrasting trim in different colors. The red is a particular favorite of mine.

Wear it by itself or with a plain t-shirt, depending on the kind of party you’re attending. The highlight of these shorts is the way they mold to the body, contouring your curves and making your ass look like a snack.
