Designed with its signature side-fasteners and cut with a 6” inseam, the mid-length shorts are printed with photographs of some of the Mandarin Oriental’s most exotic and breathtaking locations around the world. The prints are featured on three of the shorts and include beautiful scenery from the hotel chain’s properties in Bodrum, Turkey;  Sanya, China and on the shores of Italy’s Lake Como. Stunning aerial views of the mountains, lakes and architecture from each individual five-star property are on full display—an instant crowd-pleaser that will have people wishing they could be transported to such a luxurious oasis.

The fourth pair of shorts use a print of the Mandarin’s fan logo in a tesselating, navy pattern for those who prefer something a little more subtle. Either way, any style you choose will definitely fit the bill for your next weekend trip or island vacation; Orlebar Brown’s swim shorts are perfect for a dip in the pool or beach, yet smart enough to wear to lunch or for a drink, making them the perfect choice to wear all day long.
