I bought two pairs of shorts I consider stylish this year.
The first are lightweight flat-front khaki cotton ones from Edun with front pockets that button shut. They are not cargoes - the GF hates them! - but they have a convenient back-hip welted pocket that's the right size for a cellphone. I could not find a picture of them online.
The second are cotton flat-front POW check "walk shorts" from J. Press.
ZegnaSport also has well-cut, albeit wildly overpriced, shorts.

Shorts I will wear, but sandals/flip flops leave me cold. Sneakers or loafers (usually JMW 180s) are my standard wear-with-shorts shoes, though last time I wore shorts (the aforementioned Press POW check ones) I wore them with Banana Republic loafer socks and those recently clearanced Peal double-strap monk wingtip spectators from Brooks.
