Last weekend at the AllSaints pub at Jelly Pool concert series, our New York Editor rocked out these J. McLaughlin shorts and never got so many compliments. The love might have been the fact that the bright orange shorts from this NY-based, prepster-go-to designer, are em"blaze"oned with miniature green marijuana leaves reminiscent of Lucien Pellat Finet's Mary Jane cashmere sweaters. But instead of coming off as garish, these preppy duds for dudes are a lil' more subtle—not so big that you scream pot-head, but just large enough to make heads turn at the country-club or concert. So whether you're about to smoke a bowl, or are on the straight-and-narrow, these babies are totally, well, dope.
J. McLaughlin Devon Twill Shorts, $125, available online at J. McLaughlin, or J. McLaughlin, 218 Hicks Street (between Remsen and Montague streets); Brooklyn; 347-599-2818
