Burda 7230. So far Burda patterns have the best choice for men. I planned on using navy blue sweatshirt knit jersey fabric. Instead I decided on an Aztec printed soft terry fabric from Girl Charlee. I used my overlocker for all seams, its a fast and very easy pattern and I liked the instructions too.
The fabric is soft and drapes very well. Elastic is used for the waist band and then a tie cord is threaded through, large patch pockets. True to size, You could cut the hems any length you wanted. The pattern includes a women’s version.
Update Edit. He still loves and wears these Burda 7230 shorts 7 years later!

Just add beer! I love this picture and just had to include it, my Mum has just handed him a beer. Look at that smile. No wonder!…. he has new handmade shorts and his mother-in-law is giving him beer! The laughter alerted the dog, who ran out to see what the fuss was about. Looks like these were a sewing success and I will be making another pair very soon! Watch this space.
He highly recommends Burda 7320 and so do I!
