Fashion designer Tom Ford once claimed that shorts are not to be worn in the city. They are, however, to be worn freely on a yacht (when you're not in swim shorts of course). From soft, jersey materials for lounging in your master suite, to breathable linens to wear out on the deck, we've selected some of the best shorts that stylishly take you from cabin to coast this Caribbean season.
Frescobol Carioca Tencel-Linen Shorts
You can get a sense of how comfortable these shorts are at first glance, can't you? Perfect for comfortable lounging onboard in soaring temperatures, the tencel-linen is lightweight and breathable, not to mention sustainable.
