Ladies, how do you feel about the inseam on men’s shorts creeping closer to your own (i.e. 5″ inseam)?
I LOVE short shorts on men. (And speedos.) Always have. My pick: A pair of vintage Ocean Pacific’s on tan and toned legs. Oooh, or- 7″ inseam Carhartt cords. Not sure where you can still acquire these but happy hunting, men!
Guys in itty-bitty teeny weeny shorts always make me think of uber preps on their way to their tennis games. Unless you’re running a marathon, shorts should not reveal your pasty thighs. Booty shorts may be worn only as a joke… and please cross your legs when you sit.
Just as I don’t prefer men wearing deep V-neck shirts or denim as skinny as mine, I also don’t want them wearing shorts as short as mine. I haven’t seen many men attempting to pull off the 5″ inseam so I can’t say it never works (and Steve McQueen alone proved it can). I will say, however, that if you are even thinking of attempting this look, you better have some muscles on your bones and some sun on your skin; moxie doesn’t hurt, either.
I have no problem with men wearing shorter than the norm shorts. Comfort is key. If you’re comfortable and confident with showing off those muscular legs, go for it.
Not a fan.
