I'd like some opinions on men in shorts. I basically hate 98% of all shorts. They're badly cut, badly worn and often in colours that no man in his right mind would consider in a longer version. Moreover, there's the problem of footwear. The right shoes might do the trick, but socks tend to look wrong, and I hate putting bare feet in good shoes. Sandals are pretty much out; flipflops are irritating as hell; and trainers should only be worn for training. So, if someone can provide an image of a man looking refined and respectable in a pair of shorts, I'd be eager to see it.

As long as these do not make a comeback I'm fine ...

Surely nobody ever wore those on the street? Come to think of it, they probably did.
Those with tall tube socks pulled up to the knees with a comb sticking out.

Hey! What's wrong with that? Stockton was awesome -- even in those shorts.

Now they gotta play in shorts that go mid calf. Kinda ridiculous.

 

Our grandfathers wore "short pants" when they were children as a sign of their youth (not in the good sense). Traditionally, they are the mark of childhood. Unless you're a game warden or a kid, I'd have to say no on the shorts.
what about postal carriers? nothing says style like government issue!
Indeed ...

I'm not sure there is a comfort zone in this regard.
Angus, rockin the short trousers
