Aigle Enee

If ever a pair of shorts was made for walkers, it’s these. Great cut and very flattering fit. Fabric isn’t as soft as some, there’s no back pocket and they’re expensive, but they wash and dry well and finishing details are very nice – zip pulls, quality webbing belt.

Verdict: Attractive and versatile. Not perfect, but yes, sometimes it is worth splashing out to look good in a pair of shorts.
